How to stop the engine ?!

Another stupid question from Germany ;-)

The pre owner of my JD 100 unconnected allot of wires and little pluggers. The safety switch for the PTO clutch is unmounted and short-circuited - but thats another story.

My problem is about stopping the engine. I think the regular process to stop the engine / ignition is done by turning the key to position "off". But my engine is still running in this position. I might found the problem by testing the wires coming from the ignition lock with my voltmeter. There is one unconnected yellow wire. My voltmeter indicates connectivity to the minus pol (ground) in key position "off". It has no connection to the minus pol in position "run" and "start".

I am assuming that this unplugged yellow wire is probably the right one to stop the ignition / engine. Right?

But were shall this cable be connected to?

Again, sorry for the stupid question but I don´t
have a wiring diagram for the JD 100.

Best from Germany,

Tom it wasn't me this time. Jolanda my heritage is 100% German with my grand parents on both sides coming here as children just before the turn of the century before this one. Late 1890s. To some degree I think in German language structure yet. Roger
