safety switch question Soverign tractor

Recommended Posts

fishnwiz

Can anyone tell me if there is a safety switch on the clutch pedal of a 97 Soverign tractor? I know there are switches on the Pto, seat and hydro lever But am not sure about the brake/clutch pedal.

Thanks

Definitely no safety switch on a '97 hydro Sovereign.

I don't think they made a 6 speed or other manual tranny version Sovereign in '97, but if they did, I don't know how the "safety of the tranny" would be tied into the safety system.

On my sovereign the seat safety is very sensitive.. Even when sitting fully on the seat I can get a no start. Mark sure this switch is fully seated for it to work.

Mark, if that tractor has a Command, there's always the 'blue wire syndrome'.

I made note of this about a week ago:

"There is a tiny, in diameter, blue wire that when energized pulls in the starter solenoid and motors the starter. It has been a stinker in the Sunstars and Sovereigns of not having enough voltage to get the job done. A quick fix is installing a Bosch type relay to give the solenoid enough voltage to get the job done. As soon as I find my sketch, I post it."

flash... if I could explain exactly how I probably would have never done it sm04

I jumped my head light wire to " another " wire and I heard crackling and smoke rolled out from under the engine cover .

I didnt like that mag anyway dOd. I put a coil on it now after a lesson learned I am tracking down my safety switch problem ( after working on another tractor for a while )and will replace the mag when I pull the engine ...........maybe ..lol

BLT,

Please tell us more about the Command "tiny, in diameter, blue wire".

Rather than hijack this thread, I started a new one (BLT's tiny, in diameter, blue wire - Command).

Looking forward to your reply
