Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

I am going on the assumption that the engine is a DTS engine. When the yellow light is on, this means that the engine is in gear and not ready to start. Ensure that the throttle control is truly in Neutral and that the gear case is also in Neutral.

If you do not have a DTS engine, please post a pic of the control handle and I can assist you further.
