Disconnected, dirty or fouled spark plugs are common causes for engines that won`t start. For small engines, spark plugs typically need to be replaced every season or after 25 hours of use. You should also check to make sure the spark plug gap is set correctly.
A “kill switch” is normally used in reference to small engine systems like dirt bikes, chain saws, and snowmobiles. These kill switches work by either grounding out the ignition to chassis ground or interrupting the ignition supply voltage so there is no spark.
Why Is My Lawnmower Turning Over But Not Starting? If you pull the cord and hear your engine turn over, but your mower is not starting, the most common reasons for this are low fuel, a broken gas valve, or a bad choke fault. A broker spark plug could also be the culprit.
If you are just bypassing ignition, then go straight to the fuse box. There you will find the fuse to power up for said ignition. And to crank it, just jump the “S” terminal of the starter to battery power. It should start.
Finally, ignition wire kill switches work by putting a break in the ignition wire so the car will not start. This switch can be hidden well out of sight, but it is imperative that installers cut the right wire or else the owner may face significant repair costs.
A kill switch for vehicles and machinery is sometimes called a “dead man`s switch” because its purpose is to automatically shut the vehicle or machine down if the operator becomes incapacitated. This is different from the aforementioned big red button, which often has to be enabled by an individual.
If your Briggs & Stratton engine has a spark but won`t run, then it is most likely a problem with the gas or air intake in the engine. The spark on the spark plug ignites the gas in the piston, but if the air filter is clogged or the gas can`t flow, then the engine won`t start.
Twist the ignition key to start the car.

Release the key just after twisting to the ignition point. If you keep the key turned as far as it will go after the engine is running, you will hear a very ugly grinding sound that comes from the gears in the starter and the gears in the engine grinding together.

Press the clutch pedal with the left foot (if the car is manual) Press the brake pedal with the right foot (automatic and manual cars) If the car has a key, turn the key to start the engine and let go as soon as the engine has started.

A dirty carburetor is one of the most common causes for a lawn mower not being able to start after sitting unused for months or years at a time.
