Ok i'm stumped. I went to start my 03 mcghs with a kohler 18 and it just clicked so I thought dead battery jumped it and it would run a minute or two then die. then I jumped it again and it would die as soon as i would engage either the blades or fsc so I unhooked the safety switches and got it to work for about ten minutes then it just died again. jumped it again and got it over to the garage and i heard a pop shut it down to take a look and the battery cover had shot off. so I replaced the battery hooked everything back up like it's supposed to be and turned the key and smoke shot out of the time delay module. So I thought that must be the problem got a new one put it in and poof that one shot out a puff of smoke too. I've been going through the wires looking for shorts but can't find any. the terminal on the time delay module thats turning black is the one with the brown wire that goes to a relay and also the fsc switch. Any ideas?
