I don't know much about lawn tractors but will hazard a wild guess. Does your tractor normally stop running when you get out of the seat without the brakes on while it is running? It could be that the tractor has both brake and seat pressure sensors wired in parallel with the ignition circuit.

If this is the case you could lift up the seat and jumper across the sensor to test the theory. ....

Mine also has safety switch in the steering levers if you pull them into operation without releasing the brake.

Look for blown fuses, lose wire, also could be bad relay in addition a safety switch. Be careful, fingers are not store bought. Neither are toes. KT ....
