John Deere Lawn Release Clutch Brake - Shuts Off

mactron I have a John Deere - Scott L2048 and was riding along and the engine cut off . Seems to be a very common problem recently with alot of folks.

It will start up and run fine until I release the clutch/brake and then it shuts right off.

I can get the PTO to work when the clutch/brake is push down.

I read other forums and other postings and most people and most folks were able to fix theirs by doing one of these five things -

(1) replace the safety switch under your seat

(2) replace the starter solinod

(3) replace the spark plugs

(4) replace the battery

(5) bad fuel

Of course I did all five of these things - and I still cannot get mind to go -

I have checked the belts and I have checked all the wires to make sure they are intacted.

I have looked at the wire harness diagram from John Deere and do not know what to replace next.

I heard and read alot of folks having the same problems - not only with my model - but quite few others John Deere models as well doing the exact same thing.

The only strange thing that occured before this all happen was that about two months earlier - the tractor would not longer go in reverse. The engine would die when it did (even with the PTO disenaged).

Never thought nothing of it - and was just going to live with it.

Anyone else have similar issues?

Is this a clutch problem?

Transmission issue?

Or could it be a wiring or safety swich issue?

I am completely stumped?

Any suggestions on what to do next - other than take it to my local John Deere rep.
