jd 185 starting
|j jasie||In order to start my tractor i have to step on the brake to complete the circuit. It seems the brake doesnt always engage the circuit so i have to try and rock or stomp on the break to get it to start .
Any ideas please
|Dale G. Basgall||j : Set the park brake lock and try to start the tractor without getting onto the seat. The seat switch and pto switch are also in the circuit so if you set the park brake and the engine starts every time it may be the seat switch also. If the cushion on the seat is working around the switch may not have the correct pressure, otherwise trace the brake pedal to the switch and see if there is somthing in the switch preventing it from going all the way in.

|jonathan Jasie||The seat is cracked and I think it is the seat pressure switch. Is there some way to disconnect it or another work around?
I am the only driver.
|jonathan Jasie||I did check the switch and it pushes in about half way from a metal rod connected to the brake. I would have thought there would be something on the rod to push the switch in further
