Check the resistance across the 2 connectors on the PTO clutch and post the results. It may be a bad clutch burning up your switches.

Put it on 10 or the lowest setting and see how many ohms you show.

It should be less than 10 ohms. Make sure your meter is working right, and if so, I'd say the clutch is bad based on that reading.

The easiest thing to do is check for power at the clutch. If you have power and ground and it doesn't engage, then the clutch is bad. If not, go to the switch and check there. It can be tested with a meter though.
