Make and full model? Will the pto clutch engage , if you use jumper wires direct from the battery to the clutch? Engine off and key off, just direct from battery to the clutch. If not, the clutch has failed. If it does, is there a relay between the pto switch and the clutch?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

MAKE AND MODEL? Electric clutch is mounted under the engine. below the transmission drive belt.
