Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Model number of the engine? Do you know what the coils look like? One small terminal, two terminals, or three terminals. Kohler uses all three ignition systems! The kill circuit may be grounding out the spark to the coils.

Dont know the model # ***** the coils have 2 terminals. Would the model number be helpful to you?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 years ago
DSAM (Smart Start) pink wire is trigger wire, brown wire is kill wire, remove the brown wires and check for spark. Her e is service manual link.
