    Hello all, Im posting this here instead of the mechanical forum as I hope to get a quicker response. My Scag has started giving me trouble. It will start fine and die after about 5-10 seconds, maybe not even that long. Just like there is a safety switch open, like the brake engaged or the control levers opened. We have narrowed it down to the safety wiring. I bought the mower used and did not get any books with it.
    Can someone PLEASE scan in and email me a wiring diagram for a Turf Tiger with a Kohler. IT is a 2002 with a 61" deck and a 25 Kohler if it makes a difference. I have missed 3 days of cutting already and really need to get it going this weekend and the closest dealer is 1.5 hours away and they said it would be 2 weeks before they can look at it. If you cannot scan it you can fax it to me, just email and I will give you the fax number.
    Please any help would be great. Email anything you can to clean3@cox.net.

    Thank you, James McKay

    try duct taping the seat safety switch down. see if that solves it. i have had 2 tigers and it happened to both in the same fashion youre speaking of

    Wild guess but chech the fuses....it sounds like the pull down for the carb isn't getting initiated and that usually is a blown fuse. The Scag is not weather proof(operator panel) and if it gets water in that area the fuses go.

    Have you tried asking scag for the manuals. Then you would get exactly what you need.

    If it was a bad kill switch, wouldn't the engine not start in the first place? The engine would crank over with no spark. right? Sounds to me like the engine isn't getting fuel fast enough. I could be way off here, and you said you already know its electrical. Just my thoughts.

    here they are. Just pick what mower you have. Then there will be a list of serial numbers on the next page, click on yours and your manual will come up with acrobat reader. it may take a bit. i did one and it took a minute, but it was 118 pages.
