Why doesn't the PTO engage the blades?

assuming the PTO is an electric clutch engagement ? if so you must not be getting voltage to it. also you may have a safety switch restricting voltage from getting there. i have a rider that has this type of PTO and if my battery gets low mine will cut in and out as i mow. i charge my battery and then it works just fine. check for voltage at the clutch and also you can check continuity of the switch itself to make sure it does work. hope this is some help

Does model # 917.276021 have a mower lock out on the transmission

The PTO when engaged draws a lot of power from the battery. Check the battery for proper voltage. If your battery is low or say 1/2 charge, it will never engage the blades and will die every time you try to engage the blades.

When I go to engage the blades on my 35 hp bad boy it kills the motor. Already checked the kill switch an clutch

Electric Clutches draw a lot of battery voltage when engaging the blades. You probably have a bad battery or an undercharged one. If your battery isn't fully charged it will likely kill the engine when you try to engage the blades.

John deere gx 75 losses spark

Loosing spark,and a no start are two different issues! If it's a no start,no voltage to the starter,the it's a bad switch,bad connection or a BAD GROUND ! clean all connections.

Husqvarna pto problem(?) disengaged blades to travel, would not engage after. Battery dead when checked after shutting off engine and wouldn't restart

Hi, first charge or replace the battery if necessary then check that the mower is charging the battery. The pto is probably fine but it needs battery voltage to engage. If the mower has stopped charging the battery may have had enough voltage to hold the pto in until you disengaged it but not enough to re engage it. Regards Phil.

Blades fail to engage (using pto) after tractor has been running for awhile.

bad wiring to the charging system or the alternator is bad

Turn key doent start

Do you here a clunk when you turn the key to start? If so that is the starting coil pulling in, if not the starting coil may be bad or battery drained or safety switches in wrong position, but check battery voltage and connections. I had a friend recently leave the lights on and drained the battery. If battery drained charge it or jump start your mower and mow for a while to charge. Also check to make sure your safety switches are in the right place. I had another friend that had a kid playing in her garage and he had engaged her blades and the safety prevents starting the mower with blades engaged. Also if you have an electrical engaging of blades versus a manual if the blades were left engaged while sitting it will drain the battery also.

98 wrangler shuts off and won't start intermittently. Codes are P1594, 0320, 0463 & 1391. Do I change the crank senor, cam sensor or fuel filter/regulator??

(this is for others who may be viewing this problem)
P1594 = charging system voltage is too high
P0320 = crankshaft position sensor (CKP)/engine speed (RPM) sensor-circuit malfunction
P0463 = fuel level sensor circuit, high output
P1391 = intermittent loss of CMP (camshaft position) or CKP (crank position) sensor

Probably start with changing the crank sensor. But keep in mind that the high charging system voltage may be causing the other electrical sensor problems. The voltage regulator (probably located internally in the alternator) is not regulating voltage properly. So changing the alternator may be needed as well. Price the parts and start with replacing the less expensive first.

Husquavarna GT2254 runs fine till I try to engage the blades,

Hello janec37415:

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Seat Safety Switch is Bad, has a Bad Connection or the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Enough for the PTO to be Engaged.
>>When the Blade is Engaged, the Seat Switch is Showing No One is on the Seat so the Engine is Shut Off by the Safety System or
>>When the PTO is Engaged and the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Correctly, the Carburetor Solenoid Does Not get enough Voltage to Stay Open and the Engine Quits.
>>If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Happy.
