There are a few safety switches.. One make sure the PTO switch is off.. There is a safety switch under the seat, one in both steering arms, and a break safety switch.. You can go switch by switch and jump each to see which one is failing..

You can use a wire to make the connection in the wire harness.. When you look at the wire going to the safety switch theres a connector disconnect it from the switch.. what you are making the circuit complete
