Craftsman lt1000 model no. 917.271825 not running

My mower died and at first would start but would not let me disengage the clutch without dying. After research it lead me to believe it is a kill switch. (I am under the impression that there are 3). I pushed it into the garage just to get it out of the garage. Now when I try to start it it doesn't do a thing.

Any help?

There should be several safety switches on your machine. 1 for the blades, 1 for the seat, and 1 for the transmission. Sounds to me like it is not recognizing the fact that there is a person on the seat. Take a look and make sure the wires have not come unplugged from the seat switch. While at it, check the connections on the other switches. I have included a couple of schematics that should be close to your machine. Gives you an idea of where to look.
