Had similar problem and it turned out to be a bad power pack on mine.

kill circuit grounded, bad stator, timer base, or power pack. Bad ignition switch.

You need a special Peak Voltage Reader Adapter test everything but kill switch and ignition circuit.

Changed out the kill switch/ignition switch thought that was the problem to start with. But no luck on that had problems with kill switch last year. Thanks
