Thanks for the update. Click on this link and let me know if it is K that you are referring to?

Also in this link it is shown as B for the power Reverser. If that is the light it indicates there is a malfunction or fault logged. Let me know as JD service advisor on laptop can be used to pull the fault codes or by utilizing a John Deere performance monitor with the diagnostic adapter. The performance monitor with diagnostic adapter is available for purchase from Deere dealers but you would also need to purchase the diagnostic manual for your tractor.

Thanks for the update. It will need to be plugged in to a laptop with the service advisor software for further troubleshooting and fault code retrieval unless you purchase the performance monitor and manual to run through the troubleshooting steps that way. The laptop is much faster and easier. Let me know
