Also its probably not a safety switch, it did start in N and in gear with brake pulled. So whats left?

Ozone smell, a pungent smell ? Likely the brushes arching on the armature. Brushes can be worn excessively or the armature can be shorted out. Motor will fail soon. It will require a new motor to repair! Sorry

ignore the above response, it was to go to an electric lawn mower!

You have no start? Is battery voltage above 12.5 volts? Do you hear solenoid click when turned to start? This is Deer Buck?
