    I have an Exmark TT36 with ECS. When I switch the speed control lever from neutral into gear the mower will shut down. I have the OPC engaged and the parking brake disengaged. Any suggestion on how I can resolve this. Thanks

    I had this happen on one of our mowers. The cables below the control panel were loose...put new ones on there and it worked fine. 5 dollar fix

    I know how to troubleshoot that but I'm not typing it up, the short version is it's likely in the wires or one of the switches.

    What herler said. When i went to my dealer to see how to fix it the only way they said i could get the part is to order the wiring harness. Went to autozone and got a parts i needed for a few bucks

    Thanks for the insight guys. I see where Parts Tree has the switch for $9.00. Please let me know if you think of anything else that might work.
