If the park brake releases but the light does not go out and first thoroughly inspect the wiring harness and connector pins for shorted wiring or damaged or corroded connector pins. Test all your fuses and check your relays. Is this a no crank no start issue as well? If so be sure to test all your safety switches for the safety interlock circuit and the wiring harness for that circuit as well. Test for power in and out of the ignition switch to the starter solenoid small s terminal with the switch in the cranking position. If the battery and cables all tests good and you have power at the solenoid s terminal then that indicates a faulty starter solenoid if the starter motor will not crank with the S terminal powered. If there is no voltage at the S terminal then the problem is going to be either in the ignition switch circuit or the safety interlock circuit most likely.

IF THE PARK LIGHT IN THE CONSOLE DOES NOT GO OUT NOTHING WILL START!

I understand that... If the safety interlock switches and wiring are not engaged in making contact then the park light will never go out

What do you have logged for fault codes?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
NO! INTERLOCK CODE F974 , BUT IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 4 months ago

F974 is not an interlock circuit code. F974 code indicates that the alternator voltage is out of range high. Test your battery with a digital tester and inspect your battery to starter cables and grounds. Test the alternator to be sure it is charging 1-2 volts above battery voltage with engine running and not overcharging, etc. With the symptoms you are having if the wiring harness and switches test good you could have a software related issue in the controller. JD Service advisor diagnostic software will be needed to be hooked up for any updates or reflashing or a possible faulty controller. If you have charging system problems it can also cause problems with the controller . Let me know
