    I have a '01 eXmark with a Kohler 25hp engine serial #252,000 and higher that blows the fuse from starter solenoid to terminal B on ignition switch intermittently. Also, engine shuts off when the brake is released or when handles are engaged. I found a broken wire to the motion control switch that I have repaired. It did not make a difference with the shutting off problem. I tested the switches as per operator's manual but have found switches to be fine. I have no info on the kill relay--any info would be appreciated.

    I jumped the brake switch but it still stalled

    Sounds like it thinks no one is sitting in the seat, Check your seat safety switch.....
