My John Deere ct332 will start but kills right away and seat light comes on on consol

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok

Yes I have tested seat switch and seatbelt switch

After it starts and dies
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 months ago

Check the seat switch and wiring as it could be shutting down for a safety switch problem

I checked the seat switch and seatbelt switch and both seem to be working fine
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 months ago

Also test all fuses and check the relays.... test power to the fuel shutoff solenoid as you could have power to it but the solenoid could be faulty and still kicking out. It is known to happen on these machines. Let me know. We can follow up as needed here

At the fuel injection pump

One second.... do you have the manual throttle lever with the cable to control throttle and shut it off or does it shut off with the key?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Shuts off with the key and I followed fuel lines injectors or under vauvle cover
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 months ago

This engine is a bit different than the others. There is a control lever and governor assembly on the upper right of the front timing cover.... some use a cable or a shut off solenoid there and other have an electronic governor control on the RH side of the engine block. Looks like a round cylinder metal with a plastic cover. If you have this one that elec control shuts it down or you have the shutoff at the top right front timing cover. Let me know

This engine has separate pumps for each cylinder with a control rack. They are synchronized together with special tooling. the rack is what controls shutdown
