1 year old Husqvarna z246

Two says ago I cut a big yard. 30 minutes later I started it up pulled the control handlebars from park to go position and it killed the engine. I've looked for the obvious but don't see anything. Any ideas for this problem? Thanks, Steve.

    Looking over the schematics it looks you a problem with the seat switch or its connector. Even though it not shown on the diagram there is a shorting the seat switch connect so you can simply unplug to bypass it. Sometime these connector get loose or break the retaining clip and not fully plugged in so the shorting shorts the connector as if your not on the seat.
