TORO will not start

I've got an 2005 TORO Zmaster 60" and I cannot get it to start.

I have power but will not start. Can any one give me any ideas on how to check the safety switches correectly. Thought it was the brake switch but after replacing it still no luck. Key switch was replaced this year also. The seat switch apears to be working but do not know how to check it electronically. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I assume you mean will not crank? If so you need to find all the safety switches and make sure the test out ok with a ohm meter.

Places to look.

one on each handle
Brake
seat
make sure your pto is off

This is not the same mower but it will show you where to look.

Odds are pretty good it's either a fuse, pto switch messing up, or the module under the panel in front. How many hours on it? We have had this problem several times....does it click when you turn it on? A second click or any noise when you go from "on" to "start" position?

Is it old enough that you can jump the solenoid? Try that.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the solution. It was a bad PTO switch. SHe's back to running and cutting.

Got help from my nephew. He works in a local shop where I bought my last mower from. Good to know people. He was working on it while I was cutting.
