Have you held the key at the start position and moved each of the levers, including the pto lever, to see if you can isolate which switch is not being made?

This has been an intermittent problem. Could the battery be so low as to allow lights but not move the selinoid switch. The engine does not crank when this happens
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Battery voltage could be too low, it needs to be above 12.5 volts. How old id the battery?

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Seat switch, brake/clutch switch and the pto switch are the most troubles,

Where are the PTO and brake switch located?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Pto switch is at the end of the pto lever, behind the seat. The brake/clutch is where the clutch pedal pushes it when the pedal is depressed, on the frame.
