 lights wont work

I have a john deere 650 tractor I use to cut my yard, i have had it about 2 years now and all the lights worked on it until ants made their home in my fuse box. I have taken the fuse box all apart and cleaned it, all the fuses are good. The funny thing is if you keep the throttle pulled back for it to kill the tractor while turning the engine over the lights will come on, but when you move the throttle forward to start the tractor the lights turn off.
Any suggestions I dont no what to check.

My thought would be something is loose in the fuse/wiring area and the stop is pulling the short into contact.

I'm not clear if the lights come on during when shutting down the tractor or when turning over the starter at low throttle. If it's the latter I'd suspect the switch. I don't know if trouble shooting on this tractor may be complicated by any relays or solenoids.

If they don't come on when the tractor is running I'd start by seeing if there's voltage at both sides of the fuse. I'd also probably push, pull and wiggle the wiring harnesses a bit.

I did have a mystery problem of intermittent lights, a good fuse and voltage to the fuse. What I didn't check was for voltage at the other side of the fuse. There wasn't any and a dirty holder was the problem.
