Husqvarna YTH2348 PTO stopped working while mowing, no power to the hour meter

Husqvarna YTH2348 PTO stopped working while mowing, now no power to the hour meter or anything

Battery is good, new ignition switch, power to solenoid, solenoid checks good and mower will run by crossing solenoid post, with key off, turn key on it dies---no PTO function.
Checked seat switch and it checks good. Don't seem to have any power to ignition switch.
New fuse and is good. Only mv power at B.
I have battery voltage, 12.6v, on both sides of the fuse.
When the PTO quit while mowing the mower was still running and drove it to house. When I killed the mower with the ignition switch and tried to restart there was nothing, not even the hour meter??
Really appreciate your help.
Thanks, Danny.

Do you have anything at the switch? If not go back to the fuse and recheck it.

You can start it by jumping across the solenoid posts with the key in the off position and it runs. When you turn the key to run, it dies? At what point did you put in the new switch?

Check that the pto switch is working. If the PTO clutch is not getting power, if the clutch solenoid is defective, or if the clutch is worn out, the lawn mower blades will not engage.

Thank you,
Just mv at the B terminal of the switch. New switch was the first thing done.

Thank you,
PTO switch checks OK and I can energize the clutch to hear it working.

This was done with the key in the "run" position? If so you have a short to ground linked to the ignition module. Are you sure you have the switch wired correctly?

Sounds like a bad switch. I'd test the switch functions with a meter.

Ignition switch Husqvarna YTH 2348 960450005 01 LAWN MOWER

Where do the colored wires attach to what terminal on the ignition switch. The plug for the ignition was in poor condition so I had to remove the wires from the plug and plug directly into the switch. My wire colors are; 2-wires B&W, 1-black wire, 2-wire green, 1-blue, 1-yellow, 2-wire black, 1-white. This is a seven wire plug. Do you have a picture or diagram that shows these wire colors and where they go? Have not been able to find this particular wire color connection on the internet.

FIXED IT! With help from you all.
Broken wire between fuse and "B" ignition switch terminal.
Thanks, really appreciate your help; Have a great day, Danny.
