Question about Ariens Garden
Have power on one wire to pto at all times and when switch is engaged have power to both wires. Is that correct or is the switch bad?
It sounds like your switch is working. Other issues might be a belt that jumped it's track and isn't tight when the tensioner tightens up, or a belt that has stretched beyond working limits, or a bad PTO clutch. You could also have a bad spot in the wire that heads to the pto clutch.

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

Do you have a volt meter or a 12 volt test light?..if you do you can see where you are losing your voltage at..but i would suspect the PTO switch is bad..i hope this has helped.....Keith

The most likely problem is the pto solenoid valve on the rear of the tractor.It could be the speed sensor but you won't know until you get the codes read by the dealer.I have had to replace the b.c.u. for this problem but it is not common.

its likely to be a switch playing you up try hard wireing the switch to see if it stops this cutting out first, do one switch at a time till you fine the one playing up
