What is the transmission in? This is electrical problem and not transmission. Need the mower make and , model number. Check the seat switch and the brake switch and their harness .

It has two circuits, one start circuit, which must be good, and a run circuit m which is not complete. Check the two safety switches I mentioned, seat and brake. And the wires to them. Also be sure the pto is off.

Is the top pulley /fan on the transmission turning when the engine is running? Look up under the fender to see it.
