What should it cost to replace wire harness on

Customer Question
What should it cost...

What should it cost to replace wire harness on Briggs&Stratton engine model(###) ###-####G5. Wiring causing fuse to blow.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?

Engine bought April 2013. A little over 4 years. No.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on degree of difficulty. I have replaced the lawn mower harness. As soon as I connect the engine harness it blows a fuse

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

There was a short circuit with the connection from the tractor harness to the front lights. Engine does not turn. Would a bad starter motor cause a fuse to blow?

Very little wiring on the engine. The starter or the fuel solenoid in the carburetor are two items that could blow fuse. Have you unplugged each component one at a time, to see if one is shorted?
