    Default John Deere 325 Lawn tractor deck wont engage

    I have a John deere 325 lawn tractor and this winter the snowblower would work on and off, When I switched it to the mower deck I get nothing when I pull the switch to engage the blades. I replaced the switch and still nothing, I checked the connection and the fuses on the side by the ignition and all seemed good. Is there another switch or fuse underneath that may have gone bad? I am not sure what to check next, all help will be greatly appreciated.

    I had the same problem with my 325. I bypassed the seat switch with a piece of wire to verify it wasn't the switch. Next I bypassed the connection at the circuit board that holds the fuses. It turned out that I had to replace the whole circuit board. It was only 80 bucks and I installed it myself in like 5 minutes.
