Kill wire from the engine has to be grounded to kill the engine, and that's done through the ignition switch. If you put 12 volts to that line, you burn out the magneto under the flywheel. IF the engine has been swapped out, you have to get creative.

Thank you . I know that the kill wire has to be grounded to kill the motor and I have thought of running the wire to a switch and the other leg to a ground . I don't want to do this as I like to keep my mowers from looking rigged , but may have to do it. I know that there is a ground wire from switch , but which one is it is my problem / question.
