Customer Question

I have a takeuchi 175 excavator that I just change the oil and filter, fuel filter, air filter and belts. I now have the warning light with the triangle and explanation mark in it starts flashing after 4 to 5 seconds of the engine running. and I have the indicator light that I think that is for the water and oil. This gauge they stay on and won't go out. its third light down right underneath the battery lampindicator.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. That lamp is for low oil pressure or low coolant level. Check and verify you have good oil pressure and the coolant is topped off. If ok then check the wires to the sensor in case on got disconnected during the service or you could have a bad sensor giving false readings. Copy and paste this link in your browser and see pdf page 49 for the warning indicator identification diagram. Also, all your general service/maintenance information is covered in this operation manual as well. Let me know if you need more help.
