Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you with the placement of the switches. The first and easiest to find is the seat switch. It is located under the seat and has two wires connected to it. The other two switches are located behind the dash and side panels. The brake switch is mounted just inside the side panel on the left side. You should see the black and whites wires connected to it. When it is mounted, the other end of the switch goes through the frame. The mower deck switch is mounted behind the dash just below the engagement lever. Look for the black and white wires and follow them to the switch.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
