Try to ump the solenoid and see if engine starts. If it starts, you will need to replace the solenoid . If not, your PTO switch may be bad. A bad solenoid is what I would check first in this case.

Sorry, I didn't mean to OPT out.

Jump the solenoid to see if engine starts. make sure key is in start/on position and brake is pressed. If not, put power directly to starter to start. Let me know the results please
