How to disable the push to reverse switch?


Active Member
I have an older John Deere L120 mower with the Yellow "push to reverse" switch on the dash. After years of fighting this I have decided it has to go. Has anyone been able to find a "work around" to disable this switch.

Pull the wiring harness off the back. You'll be able to figure it out.

I disabled mine on my x570 after the first cutting. I get the point of it but it's annoying.

on tractors I intend to sell I make sure every safety device works as it should.... same thing with all the equipment at the landscape co. I work for.... but on my own equipment I remove every one I can find.

and yes.... around most of these garden tractor forums... an L120 is NOT considered an older machine... Lol
