Hello! I have an older simplicity cv14S engine. 1692416 model # and my mower just died when I was mowing when I turned my pto off. So I jumped the mower with the solenoid to get it going and as soon as i engage the pto it dies, or as soon as I remove the lever from neutral it dies. I run my biz with it and I can't pinpoint the exact issue. Someone please help me here!. Is it pto switch? Solenoid? Something else.

Did you try disconnecting the seat switch and putting a jumper wire in?
The older ones you could just unplug
Some newer ones have feature that it wont run without it plugged in ime

It was a stupid seat switch that someone had rigged
Thanks for the updateThumbs UpThumbs Up

Im not a fan of bypassing safety stuff and homemade wire connections are prone to problems
