Are you getting battery voltage to the pto solenoid when you turn on the switch? If not, do you have battery voltage to the switch? If you have voltage to the pto solenoid, solenoid coil may be bad, it makes an electromagnet or the inner valve may not be moving.

where is the PTO solenoid? I will test.

On the back of the transmission housing. See link below.

I was not able to get voltage meter onto solenoid, however I wiggled the wires and checked. PTO now comes on and turns off after 15 seconds. I have to turn of machine and pull PTO switch again to repeat. 15 seconds then PTO shuts off.

Same time each engagement? Does shaft turn? May have pto relay that is dropping out, but in the electrical diagram, it does not designate which would e pto relay.

same time. Shaft rotates for 15 seconds then shuts off.

Need to check the voltage at the solenoid!

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
OK, There is 12.2volts at the Solenoid. After some research, it sounds like it has 2 stages. Open and Hold Open. If the hold open part of the solenoid is not working that would cause the PTO to engage and then cut out after a few moments. In my case approx 15 seconds. Your thoughts?

Yes, the solenoid has to be held open, it the coil is weak, it collapses and pto shuts off. The solenoid can be bad.
