Bypassing the safety switches are not recommended. If you do not know how to replace a safety switch you would probably do more damage to the unit or yourself and for that reason I will not tell you how to bypass the switches. Please replace the safety switches.

RIO/ PTO switches can not be bypassed. These switches are part of the safety circuits. Trying to bypass switches might cause other electrical problems, which that is NOT what you want.
