Need to Hot Wire my lawn mower!!!

I think the electrical system on my riding mower has a problem. How do I bypass the key and start the motor directly from a pair of jumper cables?
Any instruction would be appreciated.

I don't know what kind of mower you have but the easiest thing to do is take a pair of channel lock pliers and grab each post of the starter solenoid. If your seat switch is hosed you need to fix it. You can remove it by unplugging the harnesses and tinkering with a jumper wire to bypass the failed switch. Same goes for a brake switch if you have one.
