You have lost power to the keyswitch and glow pug. Have you checked all the fuses, including the big fuses under the hood, out front? Power for key comes through the fuses, from the posiitve side of the starter solenoid. Use a voltmeter or test light, to see where power is lost.

Thanks Curtis. I can tell you that when you turn the key on, instrument lights appear. Also, it will spin by jumping the solenoid (sp) Sorry, I had a business call.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Do glow plugs come on? If they do, then it likely is a safety switch, either seat or pto switch. Are both pto levers in neutral?

I think it is a seat safety switch. (Wild guess) It was moving at idle speed when it shut down. How do I check safety switches on seat?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Physical check of the switch and ohm meter test to see if the switch is working.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
PTO light is on.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Has to be on for start? Or off?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

should be off. If you wiggle the pto lever, will light go off?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have manually moved the PTO lever as if the cable could be stretched. Turned the PTO switch from one position to the other numerous times and no change.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

do you just have one pto lever?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

no mid-mount pto that never gets used?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Not sure. I would think I would have noticed. If I am in the seat, can you tell me where to look? Or do you have a pic?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Should the tractor have cranked with the key in the on position, when I jumped the solenoid?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

I would have thought it might have started, but if there was power to the kill solenoid, it would not. The key is the pto light is on, and should not be. I see just the one pto, controlled by the lever and cable, need to find the pto switch and see if it is working. Has to be at lever end, or the transmission end of cable.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is on the lever end
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The PTO shaft does turn freely
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Is the switch being pushed by the linage? Are the wires tight and not damaged?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no wire damage. Please explain step by step how to test PTO switch. I have an eletrician friend that will check it. I assume he should know. Let's make sure. LOL
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Curtis, are you still with me? I know about as much about a computer as a kill switch on a Kubota tractor.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

you want to check continuity of the switch. I may be a two position switch. The electrician wii know.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Thanks, ***** ***** I pay you and how do I contact you if I have additional questions?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Has no computer, just a operator presen relay. But the pto light is why it is not cranking.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I was joking about the computer knowledge I have on this one we are communicating.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am not remembering another larger light ever coming on below the PTO dash light. Would you know what this light represents? It could have always been on, just never noticed it.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is directly below PTO light and left of battery light.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can send you a pic if you give me an email or phone # of the dash lights?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

All I have is access to parts manual. It would be in operators manual. Would you have manual that came with tractor?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Still with me Curtis?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, would you have owners manual?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Don't think I have the the manual. How do I enter an amount to pay you?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The only thing we learned is that the PTO light should NOT come on when you turn the key on. This is a start.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

I found a manual , you will have to download it, page 15 shows the dash display. It is the PDF first manual listed in this link below.

Engine oil pressure is the other light. I hope it has always come on when I turn the key on, and I just never noticed it.
