Customer Question
Model 5085M John Deere...

Model 5085M John Deere. the PTO does not work. I replaced the on/off pull switch and it seemed to solve the problem. The yellow signal light came on the dash showing it was getting power however in about 5 seconds the light would go off and the PTO shaft never did turn.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok is he available now?

Sorry to hear you're having these troubles with this tractor PTO engagement. Run through the checks listed above as well as accessing the complete operation and maintenance manual within the link below for further details. The index is on the left-hand side. Make sure it is not getting locked out as described within these operational checks by a safety interlock function. If this all checks out okay as well as all of your fuses and relays and wiring or connector pins within the electrical circuit, check for any signs of metal or debris within the oil and filter on your tractor that would potentially flag an internal mechanical problem with your PTO clutch that would require disassembly for further inspection and repair or rebuild of the PTO clutch assembly. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can.
