5045d blowing fuse

stevie I have a 2009 5045d that blows the starter relay fuse when turning ignition on. Only happens if neutral switch is connected. Anyone had this issue before. Switch functions properly when tested.
Dale Steve: Try testing the wires that go to the neutral start switch. One should be hot +12 and the other should go to something else activated by the flow of voltage. Is the switch normally open or normally closed?

If it is normally open, (no current flow) and then is closes when the tractor is placed in neutral it connects two things together. Set your meter on the ohms scale and take a continuity test on the lead without the voltage and to the ground.

Smokindog I also have a 5045d, but a 2012. I find the gear shift or the reverser one or the other or both must be in neutral to activate the starter. That tells me there are two safety switches on the shifter system. They seem to work independent from each other. My bet is the safety switch your disconnecting is shorted out to ground, and blows the fuse when you turn the ign key. Unplugged it has removed the short.
