Check the wires.The electrical connector between the tractor's wiring harness and the PTO wire gets deformed. The wire gets heated.It can be from engine heat or from heat from the electrical connector itself. The red wire connection gets only making marginal contact as a result.And this PTO switch looses it contact and again re-gains its contact. You can try to realign the connection and see if that helps.But if that is not helping then ultimately cutting the connector out completely and replacing it with crimped spade connectors will help. You can get this connectors from local electric part store for cub cadet or from from Radio Shack online site.In most of this cases this wire getting shorted is the issue.But there are few other possibilities, also get that checked. Battery problem will cause major trouble with the PTO. It takes an enormous amount of battery energy to run an electric clutch. So if your battery is low...or goes down, the pto cannot work. Even if there is enough power to start the engine.You'd have to have the charging system in the mower checked.The PTO switch could also be bad causing this problem. This happens fairy often.Also check the wires that attach to the pto clutch. If they came loose, it won't work. Also check for any corrosion on any of the wire terminals and also the battery post and terminals. Also check to make sure that there is not corrosion on the ground cables.Last but not least, the PTO itself could be bad.... or at least need adjusted.Remove and re-adjust the pto and check.------------ This troubleshooting will help solving the problem.---------- Thanks.Helpmech.

X595 john deere pto wont kick in

These John Deere Garden Tractors have a RIO (Reverse Implement Option) on the PTO. If your PTO is engaged and you back up, the PTO will automatically stop. To reset it, depress your PTO engagement switch to the OFF position. Take your foot off the reverse pedal. Pull up on the PTO engagement switch. The PTO should restart. To use the RIO feature, pull up on the PTO switch for a second or two just before you step on the reverse hydrostatic pedal. The yellow RIO indicator light should come on your dashboard and you can now back up with the PTO still running. Works great for snow blowing when I don't want to keep resetting my electric PTO clutch to keep restarting my snow blower.

If your PTO will not restart, you may have a PTO switch starting to fail, or a likely logic problem in your electric PTO control module, or one of your forward/reverse indicator switches, which is linked to your PTO control module along with the overtemp circuit, is stuck/faulty.

Pto cuts off while mowing

check the safety switches start with the one on the seat then the one on the clutch/brake pedal then the reverse cut out switch bypass them one at a time with a paper clip to test them also look for a loss connection at all the same switches

Pto clutch keeps shutting off

If you have not replaced the pto switch do so. If you have check wiring from switch to the pto coil. Many times the wiring at the pto coil is rubbed by the belt until it wears the wire into. You can also try energizing the coil to the pto directly from battery (With engine off of course) If it energizes and stays energized it is probably not the coil.
