Poulan Ryder Kill Swith

How does one trouble shoot a kill switch / switches on a Ryder. There is one up under the seat, there is one on the clutch drive and there is one on the PTO. I piged tailed the one on the seat but it still kills engine when clutch is disengaged. PTO is the only thing that is electric. Blades move freely.

Any input would greatly help.

Shorting the seat switch will do no good if its a tamper resistant plug like alot of more recent machines are using.

Get the model number. Get a wiring diagram and go from there.
