I have a Murray model 405000X8 13.5HP riding mower. It starts fine, but when I put it in gear to go forward or reverse it dies. It also dies when I turn the mower blade on. It sounds like a kill switch problem. Thanks for your help.
Our John Deere mower does this too. We charge the battery and away we go. Seems like it doesn't have enough umpf to do anything else but start. Try it, won't hurt.
Michelle's answer sorted this problem for me. Many thanks
When you engage the mower or the gears the engine rpm should go up if that does not happened it could be the governor or the speed advanced module,most likely the module
