I guess I haven’t. I replaced the relay. But based on diagram I’m not sure where the engine stop in located
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

All the relays and switches should be in the battery box with the starter solenoid.

I have replaced it. This is what I replaced 4U8-81950-02-00 RELAY ASSY.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Could it be a stuck solenoid? When pedal is released and they pedal switch is send signal that the solenoid is still sending current?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

The solenoid would keep the starter/generator turning. More likely a bad stop switch on foot pedal or relay stuck.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Foot pedal switch was replaced and now that a look at diagram it was the stop switch that was replaced
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

Stop relay has to ground out the ignition to kill the engine, is it working?

Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
How would I test that ?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

Check the kill wire to the coil, to see if it goes to ground when you try to kill it.
