    John Deere 425 Problems...

    I have posted in some garden tractor forums out there and haven't gotten much. Thought I would try CF since you can get answers to about anything here.

    I have a John Deere 425 Lawn Tractor with the Kawawsaki 20hp motor.

    I recently was having problems with it starting and found out the positive battery cable was bad (after tearing the starter out and getting it checked).

    I put the whole thing back together and now the thing will turn over and basically run while the starter is engaged. As soon as I release the key to the RUN position the thing quits.

    I have verified I have fuel and spark...so now I am stumped.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Possibly a 'kill switch' problem? Just throwing out ideas.

    Bypassed that pesky kill switch when I bought the thing.
