Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
What happens when you attempt to engage your blades? Many times when this problem occurs, either your seat safety switch, or the wiring connector that attaches to your seat safety switch is at fault. Check both of these parts. We can continue from here. I do have a Murray wiring schematic, if needed. Thanks!
