the purple wire goes from the switch to the PTO switch to the neutral switch then to the solenoid.

How I check a solenoid - shake real hard so that the center of the solenoid can move.  If you do not feel a movement in the solenoid, I do not use it.

 

how a solenoid work see link https://www.youtube....h?v=hsoggQOoG4s

 

also are you leaving the switch for long periods of time?  if so the fuse might be the problem.  If the fuse get hot it will short out.

 

note the second post that larrybl has for testing a switch - is is for a magneto switch

a battery switch has the S in the position that M is.

 the 110 series manual - section 40 electrical section will answer most of your question

Took everyone's advice and traced the problem down with test light. Lyall (Glen) suggested to check circuit breaker too and that was the culprit. Tractor would crank several times and then nothing. Apperntly fuse was getting hot and would trip and then when it cooled down it would reset, letting it crank again. Pesky lil bugger!
Thanks all!
PS: bought a new 20 amp breaker at Napa for $3.99 and tractor runs fine now.

Excellent! The replacement was it all plastic (including the mounting) or metal?

All metal. Bracket is metal too. Is that good or bad?

Thats good in my book, plastic ages and then cracks, I like replacements parts of good quality! John Deere I believe the replacements are now plastic. Have to go check my spares, yep plastic! :(

Listen to these guys, I was frustrated as heck doing the same thing as you. Turned out the brand new ignition switch I bought was bad...
