Deutz 1817 Starting/Drivability issues

Hi Folks- My Deutz 1817 has been real reliable- until yesterday. Turned key, nothing- battery is good- jumped solenoid and it starts ok and runs- but as soon as I touch hydro or try to engage pto it dies. I thought it might be the ignition siwtch, but why would that cause problem with engaging pto? Anyone had similar situation, have any ideas? Thanks very much for your ideas and help! Mark

It sounds like the ignition switch is bad or one of the safety switches. They are all linked together at the key switch, so I would start there.

There could also be an electronic module that controls safety switches. Thats the case on the sunstar.
