Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello welcome to Just Answers My name is***** try to Solve this together. Is it electronic pto or manual?
are you using a volt meter?
ok.. So the best way is to just replace it.. But i would check the seat switch 1st. the pto switch is hard to jump its easy to just replace it..
the key switch is that new or good?
I understand.. but this is why i asked if the key switch is good?
How many spades does the pto switch have?
try these two videos
I will share with you what i have for a wire diagram provided by the model number you have given.
Its not a really good electrical diagram.
I will opt out.. Good luck
Power for the spade terminal on the solenoid comes from the keyswitch. Do you have power to the keyswitch end of the wire? If not, then .yes , you have a safety switch, not completing the ground side of the circuit. If you do have battery voltage, at the key switch end, the wire from key to solenoid is damaged . You do have power to the key from the fused wire?
oK> Let's see how that works!
Thanks! On later models, the power never goes through the safety switches, just completes the ground.
Solenoid has two small wires? Or just one? two small wires, one has to be ground, one small wire, the solenoid has to be grounded.
Can you attach schematic?
So it has to come from key, through pto switch? And the solenoid body has to be grounded to the frame.
I don't see any diagram that is helpful. I thought you had found one.
There is an attaching link on the customer end typing bar. On my end it is a tree or paperclip icon.

Where did you find schematic, maybe I can access it.
Orange and black,, through the moiniter. Is there voltage from the B , terminal on keyswitch when held in start, the orange wire.
B -S and A1 on keyswitch have to be energized for start. PTO switch will not do it.
I don't know, volt/ohm meter could determine that, check the three terminals on keyswitch.
Then it checks good. B would have battery voltage from the fused wire from solenoid. S is the orange wire to the switch terminal on the starter solenoid, (orange,white)and the A 1 is accessory power to the alternator and fuel solenoid. Is there 12 volts to the B terminal when in dash?
B should be 12 volts! Trace back and see why it is too low!
comes direct from the positive side of the starter solenoid.
