Are the lights lighting up on the switch when it is pressed? You do not need to join anything, we can fix this right here

No I'm not paying anymore in order to get info about my lawn mower, I'll be contacting the Better Business Bur. Credit my card back of $5.00.

If no lights are lighting up, disconnect the plug on the switch and clean out, then retry, if still no lights, the switch has shorted out. If you have lights, follow the link provided before and reset the code
