Check for wires that are broken, or shorting to the body of machine. Do you have a fuse in this line, if so possibly the fuse is blown. Were the switches you used new or in good condition? Only you know what your looking at. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Hi,
Check all of the wiring to the switch and the PTO clutch. You may have a wire that is either rubbing on the frame and shorting out or the two wires are rubbing together and shorting out...you have stated that you have checked the wires, but make sure to untape everything and check all parts of the wiring...

If all of the wiring looks to be in good shape and there are no scraps or scuffs, then the PTO Clutch is going bad and the magnetic clutch is either shorting or pulling too much current to engage it.... it will need to be replaced... not an easy project most of the time.

These clutches often do fail, and because of the heat of the engine and such they are usually very hard to remove. Make sure to have a good puller before you even think of trying to get it off of the shaft.

Bottom line is that it seems as though the problem is probably the electric clutch...

Check the voltage on the wire(s) connector to the PTO switch. Sometime portion of the switch can go bad. If you have voltage coming in to the switch check the output voltage going to the clutch..

You've checked the wiring to the PTO and it looks OK. Does the PTO engage when the switch is thrown? Do you have a multi meter , so you can trace the voltage to the switch, from the switch to the PTO. You also should check the safety switch (s) which will prevent the PTO from engaging if there is a faulty switch. And it could simply be a fuse that has blown.

John Deere LX173 pto will not engage. Wet recently


Probably the pto switch. Find the 2 wire 'T' plug from the PTO clutch and disconnect. With a voltmeter across the the 2 spades on the tractor side of the plug you should get 12 volts DC with the PTO switch on ( you may need to sit in the seat ). If you get 12 volts at the plug its probably the PTO clutch. If no power then its a fuse or the PTO switch

Husqvarna Mdl YTH2448 Riding Mower - Electric PTO Not Working


It sounds like your charge system is not working. If you jump the battery the engine will run with a weak battery but the pto clutch needs a strong battery to stay engaged.Try this to test it,after you jump it leav the jumper cables hooked up and try to engage the blade clutch,if it runs it is either a battery that wont take a charge or a charge system not working. If you put a volt meter on the battery while the engine is running and the voltage is 13 volts the charge system is working and the battery is bad.
