SOURCE: pto willl not engage
Hi mate, Although my trade is repairing turfcare machinery, I have no experience with this model, so I will try my best. Firstly, the clicking you hear will probably be the electric clutch engaging/dissengaging. Firstly, see if you can get the clicking with engine off, keyswitch in first position/on/lights on dash. You may have to place something heavy on the seat and have traction pedal in neutral. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT ENGAGE THE STARTER MOTOR/START THE ENGINE THROUGHT THIS!
Now have a look under the footwell on top of the deck and try to determine where the clicking is coming from, there will be a clutch there somewhere joining the engine drive pulley to a deck pulley, Also at this point check that both belts are on and with the ENGINE OFF! spin the blade/blades with your hand and ensure that the deck belts are not slipping on the deck pulleys. If they are you will need to establish where the tensioning system is. (Sorry i know pretty vague)
Back to the Clutch, once you establish where it is, engage the blades ENGINE OFF! and you should feel a greater resistance turning the blades as you are now turning the engine as well, beware though, it is theoretically possible to start the engine by doing this, but you will almost certainly not be able to spin the blades that quickly by hand.
If it is clicking to engage but not turning the engine pulley when spinning the blades by hand, then try tapping the clutch lightly as it may not be fully dissengaging.
I would put money on it being either one of the belts coming off/snapping, the blades jamming or the clutch not engaging fully.
If you find that the clicking is not the clutch engaging and its actually getting no power to the clutch then you need to go back to the pto switch and go through all safety switches! (good luck, it usually ends up with me bypassing them or running a new cable to the switch,then, smoke, shouting, swearing etc etc!) Either not advisable.
In doing all this you should have been able to have determined the problem be it one that I have mentioned or another.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Cadet LT 1045; PTO not
The electric PTO clutch on a Cub Cadet L1045 allows the mower blades to engage. The electric clutch is located directly under the engine and is bolted onto the crankshaft. When the PTO switch is placed in the on position, an electrical current is sent to the PTO clutch; engaging a brake which then allows the blades to turn. When the PTO switch is in the on position and the blades will not turn, the electric PTO clutch may need replacing. Check the 2 wire conection under the frame near the pto clutch, motor off of course. Make them tight.
------- First start by turning ign on,then switch on the pto switch to on. you should hear a click in the clutch. If not use a twelve volt test light,hook aligator end to a good ground and the needle end,touch to the pto switch harness to see if you have power to the pto switch.If you don"t, you have to go checkfurther to your power source,(battery) if you do have power there check to see if you have power at the plugin at the end of your wire harness, just at the beginning of where your cluch connects up. You can test you clutch by conneting a test wire from positive on your battery to one of the terminals on your clutch and the other terminal to ground . It will engage if it is good .--------- But if not then by pass the pto and see if the clutch gets engaged.If it gets then replace the pto switch, but if its not engaging by bypassing the PTO switch then problem is with clutch, it has to be replaced. ------------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: Ok, have a husqvarna yth2454 and it won't start. Parts replaced, solenoid, ignition switch, pto switch, brake- clutch switch, seat switch. Fuse is good. Only way to start is jump across solenoid.
You need to make sure you have 12 volts on the solenoid wire. Sounds like it may be a wiring issue.
