Customer Question

Hi! We have a 2012 New Holland Workmaster 55 4WD. The tractor has had solenoid issues. Where is the fuel shutoff switch located? We want to attempt to override it by connecting a jumper from the pos. + to the shutoff switch. Have you heard of doing this before?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That is all I can think of right now. Thank you

Did you see the link I sent showing the fuel solenoid. Solenoid has to have 12 volts at all times to keep engine running. If it has voltage and does not hold in the retracted position, the solenoid s bad.
