Sounds like your seat switch may be at fault.

How did you check the seat switch. Sears site says your model number is not valid..?
I dont know of a test for the newer type seat switch. You can not just use a jumper.

Read the 25th post in this thread: http://forum.doityourself.com/showthread.php?t=302786

It explains (in great length) the reason why the seat switch likely is the problem even though it checks out good.

Oh yeah...I forget that a lot of the AYP mowers with Kohlers have those 3 relays. Glad you got it fixed. Thanks for the update.
