if its an older toro z, about a 2000-2006 or so, it may have a mercury tilt switch located near the battery and hydro resovoir. that is usually the switch that kills the unit instantly when the brake is released. it of course could also be the seat or lever switch. if it is the tilt switch, they dont offer it anymore for epa (mercury) reasons, so you can hot wire around it and incorporate the seat switch straight to the harness so it still functions.
