Model, make, and pics usually will help! Not to a smartie, but this could be a Peterbuilt for all we know!

The 3 switches will need to be in series. As to the vehicle we do need more info.

If you are talking your basic generic key switch with a start position many places sell, they DO NOT work that well on a Garden tractor. Could be wired for just start and run, but then rest of tractor wiring won't be working right. Most GT's have five terminal switches, and then you still need to know if you have battery ignition or Magneto to get the right ones. As noted, we need to know what tractor and just what it is you are trying to do.

Sure! One wire is tied to the plug wire. Jerking on it pulls the wire off the plug. The other two(preferable 10 gauge are fastened to your saftey harness and to the pull sled. In case the tractor comes loose, the operator is safely removed from the tractor.
This is how we do it in rural Illinois. Other places may do it differently.

So in your case you need it to " open " the b+ to coil. This would be done by conecting the black and red in line.
I may be off on the colors but i dont think so, test the wires with an ohm meter, you want the 2 wires that are opened when the pin is pulled.. If you have a magneto ign. Then you want the opposite.
