Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. The first thing to check is the seat switch , if it is not registering there's someone on the seat it will die when the blades are put on or its parking brake is released. Can you driverify it around with the blades off ?

What I know is that if you don't seat properly the engine won't start.
