Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

PTO is engaged by a solenoid. One of the solenoids is for the rear, the other is the mid-PTO. See if the solenoid is getting voltage when the key is on and the switch is thrown. Either a voltage problem or a bad solenoid.
