    Default Cub Cadet 2166 pto switch ... HELP!!!

    I have a 2166 Cub Cadet that will not start, I have tested the battery and fuses, I have tested the ignition switch with a meter and it tests out fine. I have also bypassed the seat and break switch until I figure out whats causing my problem. I can connect a hot wire from the batter to the solenoid blue wire position and it will turn over great but will not start. I have also ran a hot and ground to the pto clutch itself and i hear it engage. Can anyone tell me where I can find a good wiring diagram for the switch 723-3233(925-3233 replacement). Or can anyone tell me if there is a way to bypass this switch just to see if I can get the motor to spin and then I will know what is causing the issue. Thanks in advance.

    You say it won't start but is it turning get over or is it doing nothing at all when you turn the key ?

    Here is a web site that may help with a diagram. When you jumpered the starter and got it to turn over I assume you had the ignition switch turned on. This would indicate that the 12 volts is not getting through the switch to the ignition or possibly a fuel shutoff solenoid. You may need a multimeter and the diagram to find the culprit.
