Switch won't turn on blades. Anyone have any suggestions and/or troubleshooting tips?

Does the PTO engage if you jumper the wires on the switch? If yes, clean switch with contract cleaner or replace the switch. There is a Stens switch on Amazon for $20. If no, check the fuse in the dash and check for voltage at PTO clutch connection. If all that is good, your PTO clutch is bad.

Thanks for the info.
Didn't know about the fuse. Exactly where is it located?

Usually right there on the dashboard above the switch.

Definitely check the fuse first. The fuse holders are not water resistant and hold water (then rust).
Once you get it cleaned up, add some dielectric grease to the fuse and the fuseholder.
