    Default 345 PTO won't engage

    I've been having problems with my PTO on my 345. The last time I mowed this summer I had to hold the switch up to keep it engaged. It would eventually stay engaged without holding the switch. Now the switch stays up but the PTO won't engage at all. Can I run jumpers to the PTO to see if the problem is the PTO or in the wiring before the PTO? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I had a similar problem with my 325. Yes you can use jumpers. That is how I narrowed my problem down to being the actual circuit board itself. The board was like 80 bucks.
