    Battery is likely bad. A shorted battery can cause all kinds of goofy things with all the electronics. Test the battery.

    If you have a multi-meter - check the voltage while the starter is cranking. If it goes below 10v your battery is bad.

    Check your charging system. A weak charging system may not be providing enough amperage to power the PTO under normal conditions.

    battery has been replaced, why would it not run without pto fuse? looks like only pto is powered off that fuse from the wiring diagram

    Put a new battery in. Before you screw something up by jump starting or trying to use it with the shot battery.

    Next thing would be to see if the charging system is working. After you put in a new fully charged battery.

    Battery was replaced when? They can go bad anywhere from 1 day to 10 years.

    Why not just check it? If it tests good you can take it out of the equation and move forward with diagnostics from there.

    Always check the simple/obvious stuff first. Testing the battery will take all of one minute.

    Make sure that new battery is 100% charged. Put a tender on until you get a green light.
    Also connections are clean and tight. On any new battery you have to shine up the posts before putting the cables on. Never just bolt it in.

    Then start it and check it the charging system is working.

    Last I would see if you have power to the PTO. Unplug it then have someone operate the system from the seat. While you check the voltage at the plug. Remember you will need the seat switch closed and the brake pedal off for it to work.

    It is possible to fry parts when jump starting. If you have power to the PTO the module is fine. The clutch is bad.

    Good luck
