Are you stating that the engine will run if you "hot wire" it?
If that's the case...we can probably get this fixed.

they have several safety features that might be a problem. There is probably a seat safety switch along with the saftey bar. Make sure crap under and behind the seat isnt keeping the safety switch from operating.

Post a legible schematic. You'll need a multimeter or test light.
