    BRIGGS &sTRATTON 15 hp.
    The other day this engine just quit and I had no spark from the coil. It has the electronic ignition so I cleaned everything under the flywheel and put it back thinking that this must be the problem but no. There is a small wire that goes to the coil and when I pull it off it will fire. I found two safety switches and bypassed them but no luck,so is there another safety switch that may be bad or is there something else that I should be looking at? Thanks for all your help.:confused:

    Hay : I found the answer to my problem, it was a wire that had been ran behind the starter and smashed to the motor, over time it had shorted.
