Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Have you checked the in line fuse on the machine? Will the engine crank?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
there is no power to headlights or dash display. dead.
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 7 months ago.

Check the in line fuse. My guess is that the fuse is blown. It should be located near the starter solenoid.

ok I will. the first thing to go was the pto,it would still start and run fine. then after setting for a short while it had no power from the switch at all. as if one of the safety switches had done dad.

Since you say there are no headlights and the engine won't crank it makes me think that the fuse is blown. With a blown fuse the entire system will be dead.
