ExMark Lazer Z HP Cuts Off When Motion Levers Engaged

I have an ExMark Lazer Z HP with a 20HP Kohler. Just out of the blue, if you try to pull the motion levers in to start moving, the mower cuts off. It will run fine on idle and you can engage the PTO switch while sitting on seat and it runs fine. As soon as you pull either the left or right lever in, the mower will cut off unless you move back to neutral position quickly. I feel this is a safety switch issue but do not know where to start in trying to diagnose. Any suggestions?

Do you have the parking brake off before you pull them in? I occasionally forgot about that lol

Someone will help you with the switches. We just bypass them to check. I would so seat first. Then parking brake if it's not the seat

It cuts off whether the parking brake is on or off. I called myself testing the seat switch but not sure I did it correctly. I have been unable to locate parking brake switch. I am by no means mechanically inclined.
