no it don't.

most safety switches disable the ignition - not the starter.

happy hunting.

When turning over check for spark at the plugs (I just use old plugs grounded to the engine to see if it gaps), If not I've included the test for the coil, they are different based on serial number of the tractor.

Make sure you are getting 12V to the + side of the coil while cranking or it could be a switch or bad connection. And if it is the module you have to pull the engine to replace it. :goodl: Someone posted the procedure for testing the module not that long ago if you do a search I'm sure you'll find it or maybe they will chime in. And :MTF_wel:
