Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can help you with your question.
Do you by chance know the part number of the BCU that you installed?
Also if you have it your tractor serial number would help me confirm if the controller needs programing.
Just one moment and I will check...
Give me just a moment and I will double check the number. Do you by chance have the tractor serial number?
I don't mean to have you running all over :-)
If that isn't the correct number the tractor isn't too far away
It should start out LV6130 or L0 located on the black tag on the left side of the frame.
OK... Give me a few minutes... sorry for the wait
Not a problem
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX just a moment and I will check.
Will your tractor move at all?
Only with the original BCU installed
Are you getting any codes currently?
The PTO warning is currently on the panel. Just occasionally it won't select a gear even with that BCU, normally first up in the morning, almost like it won't let it move until it warms up
It looks like they had some trouble with BCU's for a while and have gone through several different part numbers and software versions. I also see where some versions of BCU software are not compatible with the tractors EPC software. It sounds like most of the time they will set a left hand reverser error code and stop or simply fail to move at all.
When I had the replacement BCU installed, I also got a couple of other warning lights on the panel, like an overheat light and the handbrake light, even when it was definitely off
The BCU part number you installed looks to be correct for both eurpean and american versions.
OK, so should I try getting my local JD mechanic to reinstall the software in the BCU?
What I suspect is that the BCU you recieved came with North American version software on it. If you were to get both your EPC controller and your BCU controller software updated by your local dealer you should be in good shape.
OK, I'll try that, and give you a call if there are any further issues. Thanks for the help!
Just let me know. If that doesn't do the trick let me know although I suspect that will get you up and running.
My pleasure, best of luck.
opps I should setup the accpt side.
