John Deere 304J wheel loader
I'm experiencing a couple of problems that all started at the same time after I changed a couple of hydraulic hoses and topped off the reservoir. The hydraulics are operating slowly, the engine only runs up to 2600 RPM, and there is an error code e2002, which is related to the parking brake.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check your hydraulic filter for fine metal and the oil for fine metallic glitter that would indicate a pump or component failure occurring. What is your serial number? Let me know.

The oil checked out ok, serial # ***** *****
The error code as it reads in the manual:
-no park brake pressure when park brake release solenoid activated
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the update. Check that the solenoid is getting power and functioning mechanically with no debris inside or leaks at the valve. If ok pressure test the park brake release piston seals for leakage. Let me know

I did replace 2 houses going into that manifold, would the accumulator be affected by that?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Were they under high pressure? The accumulator stores standby pressure. It is possible the accumulator discharged or failed.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
This is my first experience with an accumulator, but the y didn't seem to be under high pressure. Is there a way to tell if they have discharged?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

I do not recommend working on an accumulator unless you have the proper tooling and training as it can be dangerous but there is a nitrogen charge that fills a bladder if a bladder style and that is at a specified pressure. When you then force hydraulic pressure to counteract that pressure on the opposite side of the bladder the pressure increases and becomes stored energy in the accumulator. The top cap will have a charge fitting..... There should be no oil at that fitting, it is the nitrogen side. If there is, the bladder has ruptured and the accumulator is no good

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Also a charge kit is needed to check the accumulator charge pressure. They are relatively inexpensive.

I'll do some more checking tomorrow, as I'm out of the shop now. Thanks for the help so far.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Sounds good. Id verify the electrical and other components in the circuit are ok first.
