The pto does have a control module, but can you check the pto solenoid for power when the key is on and the pto switch is on? If you have battery voltage to the pto solenoid, the solenoid may be problem!

WHERE WOULD THE PTO SOLENOID BE LOCATED
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago

I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THAT. THE ONLY WIRING I SEE IS AT THE REAR OF THE TRACTOR WHICH APPEARS TO POWER A MAGNETIC DIODE. I LOOKED UNDERNEATH THE TRACTOR AROUND THE PTO OUTPUT AND SAW NO WIRING WHATSOEVER

OK THT'S WHAT I WAS CALLING THE MAGNETIC DIODE. SO YOU RECOMEND I CHECK TO SEE IF I HAVE POWER TO THAT SOLENOID
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
Yes, that is what turns the pto off and on. It has to have battery voltage when you turn on the pto. You said there was no wiring?

I WILL CHECK THAT AT LUNCHTIME. IS THESOLENOID VALVE PART OF THE SOLENOID?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
There is the electrical part, and the hydraulic end that is inside the transmission, it screws out of the housing.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
I was out with wife at doctor, sorry. If no power from the switch which you have already replaced, the pto module would be suspect. But I don't know how you would check it!

OK. I'LL STAY IN TOUCH.DO YOU KNOW WHERE THIS PTO MODULE IS LOCATED?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
I do not, the Deere parts book shows in the pto section with it's harness, my thoughts are it is under the dash area , below the pto switch.

GOOD MORNING. I'M WONDERING IF THE BRAKE PEDAL SWITCH COULD BE BAD? IF YOU APPLY THE BRAKE W PTO ENGAGED IT SHUTS OFF. I TALKED W A JOHN DEERE DEALER AND THEY HAVE NEVER REPLACED A PTO MODULE.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
Brake switch would be easy enough to test. Locate it On the pedal linkage, and you could check with meter or bypass it.
