I have a 318 john deer lawn tractor. The engine dies putting it into gear, engaging the mower deck and the charge light is on.

You may have two different problems.
The dying problem is most likely caused by a seat switch that is not working correctly.
The charge light is most likely that the charging system is not producing enough current to charge the battery. I do not think that they are related.
