Customer Question

Husqvarna ZTR 5424 start run problem.
The motor starts,and runs fine. The machine worked perfect till I shut it off to
fill it with Gas. Now I have done this many times so don't ask if I did this or that.
I went to start it, and as I dropped the Parking brake, the motor died.
I removed the switch that is controled by the Parking brake and and held it shut and could move the machine a little till a motion lever (either side) would break contact with its switch. I could get the blade to engage for a second, before the ignition got cut off.
The parking brake switch seems to be working perfect. The seat interlock works perfect.
Before I start cutting wires to get rid of the Government inspired interlock switchs line,
IS THERE any simple relay or switch that has a tendency to fail? BTF
