Hi my name is***** will try to help. You will need the schematic for this circuit to test the harness and sensors to isolate your problem unfortunately. You could have a harness problem or possibly a bad pressure switch on your control valve. You can download the complete service book for under 10 dollars which is great to have on hand when problems like this arise. Click here for manual. Let me know if you need further help.

2006 Takeuchi TBO16 Serial Number 11612702 I purchased the
2006 Takeuchi TBO16 Serial Number 11612702I purchased the Takeuchi TBO16 new and it currently has less than 700 hours of use. The machine is designed with a safety feature, which consists of bypassing the hydraulic system when the control consoles are raised on either side, to get on or off the machine. A few days ago, the safety feature prevented the machine from working at all, leaving me stranded on top of a pile of dirt in the middle of a driveway.We began troubleshooting and first discovered that the safety system fuse was burned out. We replaced it and it immediately failed. We checked the switches that are mounted on the control consoles, they were fine. Takeuchi service suggested putting a higher rated fuse to see if perhaps the control solenoid was pulling more than 10 amps. I tried a 30 amp and white smoke appeared from the solenoid area. We began searching the wiring harness for a short and discovered that when the solenoid was installed at the factory, one of the solenoid wires was crimped against the frame and finally the insulation wore thin and a short occurred.While I was that far into the machine, I replaced both solenoids. One is the safety bypass, the other is for the two speed control. Put the machine back together, the safety system works like new, but I have lost my high speed function. When I press the high speed button on the right track control stick, nothing happens. The rabbit indicator light does not come on and the speed stays in low range.I have the machine back apart and have checked the relays and diodes and every thing else I can think of and have found no problems.Please direct me on where the problem is.James … read more
