Mower dies when I let off the clutch

I have a Husqvarna riding mower. If I let off of the clutch, the mower dies. If I engage the blade the mower dies. The safety switch under the seat is connected. I even disconnected it and jumped a wire between the connecters on it. Can you tell me what I need to do? Thanks for your help.

bad safety switch, it thinks no one is in the seat. jsut jumping a wire does nothing, some OPEN to run some short to run. as long as you mash in the clutch, the seat switch is ignored.
