Not starting with key, and cuts off when you move levers or brake is sign that the start/run circuit is not complete. The circuit, is made up of the seat, and arm switches and the brake switch. Brake seems to be working right, so I would concentrate on the seat switch and harness, and the two neutral switches on the arms. Arm switch would be my thought, there are push button switches and if one is stuck, this happens. Locate the two switches, where the arms contact them when in the neutral/start position and see if they are moving. Some WD40 and working the arms will usually free them up. Switches will be mounted on the frame.
