There is also a safety switch for each of control arms, they both have to be in the neutral position. You may have to adjust the arms.
Are you checking the resistance at the switches?

SOURCE: My Cub Cadet 2135 PTO won't engage.

i had the same thing happen
found that the on/off switch had come unplugged from the wire harness just below the switch
had to attach the wires to something underneath so the weight did not pull the wires down and taped the two switches together to prevent it from pulling apart
it needs some kind of clip to hold them together
hope that this works for you

SOURCE: Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

SOURCE: cub cadet pto won,t stay engaged

Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

SOURCE: My PTO will not engage

Check the operator presence switch located under the drivers seat. If that isn't mounted properly it will not activate like it should and will cause the mower to die when you try to engage the PTO or release the brake with it in gear.

My zero turn Husqvarna mower Starts good, but kills it when parking brake is taken off! Everything is in place otherwise.


You have a safety switch not working. First check your seat switch. Try to engage the PTO with the parking brake on. Blades should start but die when brake is released. My guess, seat switch. Check it is completely connected, these can be hard to connect. Make sure you hear a "click" when the connector is pressed into the switch.

Why does engine die when brake released or mower engaged?


The first thing I would check is to make sure the drive belt is not binding somewhere.

Mower runs fine but shuts off when the blades are engaged.


This sis a micro switch issue, start by checking/replacing the seat switch, make sure the block connecter is fully pushed home onto the micro switch.

Husqvarna 17530 stalls when engaging the blade. Seems to run fine else wise/


Does engaging the pedal for the PTO lug the engine down, or does it just die like turning off the key?
If it lugs the engine down, then you need to make sure you can spin the spindle and idler pulleys by pulling the belt by hand. You should be able to slip it around the engine pulley enough with the blade pedal disengaged. Pull the belt up tight so the slack is around the engine pulley and try to spin the blade spindle and idler pulleys.
If it dies like turning off the key, then its likely a safety switch and may require a meter to test which.

The seat switch is has a shunt in the circuit that must be satisfied in order for the rest of the circuit to be happy. Make sure the connections are good, the pins inside the amp connectors will sometimes spread, push out of the lock etc. and if connection is lost will not work. Otherwise a new seat switch will be needed. You might check the PTO switch for continuity, without a diagram or schematic I am not sure how your circuit is wired. you have to have the parking brake engaged to get off the mower while the engine is running and the PTO is Dis-engaged?
I don't know if your "go" pedal eliminated this switch or not. But if with the parking brake engaged and the PTO disengaged, you lift off the seat and it dies, then its the seat switch.

Hope this helped Tim

Leplease explainon the safety switchs on mtd models660-679 work? I beleave my model is an intek twin. thank you


Hi,

The safety switch beneath the seat is only one part of the several interconnecting safety features of the modern riding mower. If the system works properly, you must be seated for the mower deck to operate. The tractor will continue running with the Power Take Off disengaged if the parking brake is set before the operator leaves the seat.The seat switch consists of two electrical contacts normally separated by an air gap. A spring creates an open space between the two contacts. Mounted between two plates, the switch's spring compresses under the weight of the person sitting in the operator seat and completes an electrical circuit. With the switch closed the tractor's ignition system can be switched on with the ignition key. If the operator stands, the spring forces the gap open and interrupts the electrical ignition circuit. The safety circuit allows the riding mower motor to continue running if the PTO is not engaged. When the parking brake is set a second switch in electrical parallel with the OPS closes. This bypasses the safety switch under the seat. If the operator stands, the parking brake switch still completes the ignition circuit.The mower blade turns only when the PTO engages. If the operator should leave the seat with the blade turning and under power, injuries could result. The mower blade would even continue spinning at full power if the machine overturned. To prevent this type of accident, engaging the PTO deactivates a connection in the original circuit and completes a second circuit in series with the OPS switch.

If the operator leaves the seat with the PTO engaged, the ignition interrupts and the machine stops. Until the PTO is off, no combination of settings will restart the mower.

Problem still exist,engine dies when brake relesases,blade engage,unplug safety switch under the seat


Switch under seat needs to be plugged in and make sure the pto lever for the blades is depressing the safety switch. If you are sitting on seat and seat switch is plugged in properly and it cuts off when brake is released then it is seat switch. It is about a $10.00 part; no big deal to replace.

I have a white outdoors riding mower....the mower shut off when i engage the pto...is the switch bad?.....can i by-pass it?....how do i test the switch????


Check the safety pressure switch under your seat. When you engage the PTO and get off the lawn mower, it will kill the engine. I had the same problem; drove me nuts. I thought it was the switch that is compressed when the PTO is engages. It wasn't. It was the safety under the seat. Bypassed and it worked fine. Ordered a new switch from a local repair shop. Good luck.
