    Z master will start up perfect but if you release the brake it shuts off, same thing happens if you move the steering or try to engage the clutch. I unhooked the mercury switch which is what I thought was wrong but it still does the same thing. I am sure it is a safety but I dont know which one.
    Thanks for any help

    No joy on the seat safety, Thanks for the help I had to take it in and I pick it up in the morning. I will let everyone know what it was.

    If it is a safty you can disconnect the kill wire at the engine. This will allow you to move the machine but I would not cut with it like that because with the kill wire disconnected from the engine the only way to kill the engine is to unplug the spark plug wire(s). If you disconnect the kill wire from the engine and it still stalls out then you have other problems.

    The problem is the interlock module located on the backside of the panel that's right behind your knees. Seen this problem a couple of times.
