I have an additional 4 pin plug on my 450.
2 wires(white) go to engine. 1 wire(black) has fuse holder and goes to positive terminal of battery. 1 wire(red) connected to ignition switch.
It had a cover over the pins but it came apart in my hands(really !!). So what does it power?
1 more thing- any body have a source for an ignition switch for the 450. Mine quit working because of my stupidity of leaving it outside exposed to the elements
thanks for the help
Amiably,
norwee

Not sure! A pic would help see what it looks like. Ignition switch is part # 10713P2. Here's a link for a switch.

Sure not just that bad connector that makes it seem like bad switch??  Have no idea what this model is, but newer tractors have lots of safety systems that don't work when not right on. Safety switches may be linked thru this connector is what I'm saying.

No safety switches, Gary.

Does it have the separate starter switch as shown above?

Kenny,

Its your old tractor. The connector just fell apart and i wanted to remove it . not sure what the plug was for but I can remove it and tape up the wires.

The switch is bad because I left it outside.

I can jump across terminals and get it to crank. Just didnt want to cut the ends off the wires to put in a spade connector switch. I like the screw type.

I didn't mess with it much, so I don't remember for sure how it was set up. I think that may have been added by the previous owner for who knows what.
