Replacing an Ignition Switch on a Riding Lawn Mower


The first step is to turn the ignition switch
off and remove the key. Lift the seat. Remove the bolt connecting the negative cable
to the battery and tuck the battery cable away so it doesn’t touch the battery post. Lift the hood to access the back of the ignition
switch. Release the locking tabs and push the switch
out through the front of the dash. Disconnect the wire harness attached to the
back of the ignition switch. Connect the wire harness to the back of the
new ignition switch. Push the ignition switch into the dash and
engage the locking tabs. Lower the hood. Reconnect the negative cable to the negative
battery terminal. Lower the seat.
