HAVE YOU USED THIS MACHINE BEFORE WITH THE 3--2--1 CODE?

follow the steps in the provided video. if this doesn't work, you will need to replace the smart switch. if machine is less than 2 years old this will be a warranty issue and Husqvarna will pay for it. The video is on a craftsman, but Husqvarna and Craftsman are the same as they are both made by AYP
