    Hi Anonymous, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? The RIO (Reverse Implement Option) and PTO (Power take-Off)switches are different switches and have different functions. What do you want to do?

    You want to stop the kicking out of the pto when reversing, right? you don't want to have to mess with anything when reversing. Typically there is a switch on the reverse linkage. find it and usually you can install a scotch-lock to tie the wires together. Make sure that all systems work properly and that there is not a draw on the system by cheating the safety option. Switches can be near the pedal to back on the linkage by the trans.

SOURCE: john deere 2010 tractor. pto grinds and wont engage

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

SOURCE: John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the ideas. I will try your suggestions. Tractor used for snow blowing during the winter and gas did not stay in it long. Good ideas!"

SOURCE: john deere 300 garden tractor hydrostatic drive will not work

check two things, make sure the by-pass rod is pushed all the way in and the drive belt from the engine to the rear end (tranaxle). If both check out ok do not attempt to service the tranaxle at home. have thet serviced by a dealer.

SOURCE: problem with John Deere L120 tractor

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

John Deere x320 PTO switch not getting power. Mower blades will not engage. Replaced PTO clutch and PTO switch. Have checked seat safety switch and RIO switch as well.


Just out of curiosity check your pigtail that plugs into the pot harness. I have ran into a broken wire inside that pigtail before.

Bypass RIO/PTO on john deer 1025R jractor


RIO/ PTO switches can not be bypassed. These switches are part of the safety circuits. Trying to bypass switches might cause other electrical problems, which that is NOT what you want.

How come I can't start my John Deere LA115 after


The Reverse Interrupt Override switch is supposed to let you keep the blades engaged while using reverse. Be sure PTO is off and brake pedal is depressed and try to start engine. If it wont start/ wont crank then a switch is stuck or failed or there is a broken wire. Switches that are involved with PTO operation are the seat switch, reverse switch, PTO switch, and RIO switch. The starting system requires neutral ( no reverse activated), brake switch and PTO switch off.

X595 john deere pto wont kick in


These John Deere Garden Tractors have a RIO (Reverse Implement Option) on the PTO. If your PTO is engaged and you back up, the PTO will automatically stop. To reset it, depress your PTO engagement switch to the OFF position. Take your foot off the reverse pedal. Pull up on the PTO engagement switch. The PTO should restart. To use the RIO feature, pull up on the PTO switch for a second or two just before you step on the reverse hydrostatic pedal. The yellow RIO indicator light should come on your dashboard and you can now back up with the PTO still running. Works great for snow blowing when I don't want to keep resetting my electric PTO clutch to keep restarting my snow blower.

If your PTO will not restart, you may have a PTO switch starting to fail, or a likely logic problem in your electric PTO control module, or one of your forward/reverse indicator switches, which is linked to your PTO control module along with the overtemp circuit, is stuck/faulty.

John Deere LX173 pto will not engage. Wet recently


Probably the pto switch. Find the 2 wire 'T' plug from the PTO clutch and disconnect. With a voltmeter across the the 2 spades on the tractor side of the plug you should get 12 volts DC with the PTO switch on ( you may need to sit in the seat ). If you get 12 volts at the plug its probably the PTO clutch. If no power then its a fuse or the PTO switch
