Hello , Im Bobby
I would switch the 2 actuators , and then try it, If the code stays the same then the problem is with your spool its self sticking, But if the code changes to lift actuator not in neutral then the problem is that actoutor. I have put on many of these actuators, They are the down fall to the bobcat name.
I will have to see if I can get a wiring diagram from a friend of mine thjat still works for the bobcat dealer that I worked for in the past.
If you switched the actuators and the code stayed the same,. Then I am going to say the spool itself is stuck or sticking, If you remove the actuator you should be able to stroke the spool by hand back and force to see if it is sticking or stuck. I have seen alot more actuators and spool problems then wiring problems on these loaders. But thats not saying that this is not a wiring problem.
Sir, we have work the spool back and forth did't seem like nothing was sticking they seemed to work freely. The manual is very vague about trouble shooting systems it has more remove and replace components section than trouble shooting I will accept your answers but please stay with me on this I'm grasping at straw's I kind of feel that it could be electronically defencies. Thanks for the help very much appreciated.
I should have a wiring diagram tomorrow, and be able to tell you more, But just going by memory there are 4 wires going to each actuator. 2 of the wires controls the motor of the actuator , them wires will reverse polarity depending on which way the spool is moving.
The other 2 wires are actuator position sensor wires that will tell the loaders computer where the actuator is,
I will give you some more info tomorrow when I get the diagram.
And you don't have to accept the answer till you completely satisfied.
Okay Sir I will just wait until you find a schematic, I feel we are getting closer. I appreciate your help But I'm not sure I mistakenly give a wrong no# XXXXX the wire thanks again.
