Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Did you still need help? Do you have a voltmeter or test light to check the pto switch, and the pto clutch? The switch as to turn on the relay for the clutch, There are two relays, just alike, on the fire wall, one is for pto. Swap the relays and see if the pto engages. If not, take jumper wires direct from the battery and go to the clutch and see if the magnet engages on the clutch. If it does the clutch is good, and the problem is before the clutch. Either switch, relay or wires between. The key switch module has the two fuses, be sure both are good. And it has two LED's, are they both on? They indicate that there is voltage to the panel. One is ignition, the other is pto.
