Electrical problem with Craftsman GT5000 lawn Tractor

James03578March 7, 2013

Craftsman Model # 917276351
Kohler 25 HP Model # CV730S

Key switch will no longer kill motor when turning the key off. Changed the key switch with new part, still same result. It appears the key only kills 1 cylinder and not both!

According to the parts list, the engine has 2 "modules" aka coils.
Apparently the kill wire to one has been disconnected??
