    My mower has only 60 hours on it. It has a grounding short that will not let the engine start unless I disconnect the white wire coming form the engine. I have disconnect the ignition switch, the operator presence switch and blade safety switch, with still a no start. When I remove the interlock module it will then start. I replaced the module with a new one and still the same problem. Thanks for your help.

    The hydro interlock switch probably needs to be adjusted, you can't start if it is actuated.
