On your L170 is the instrument cluster on the right side or to the front above you? On either one when the levers are in neutral does the Park Brake light come on?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

no, the park brake light does not come on, nor is it suppose to.

Mechanic: dd85, Technician replied 3 years ago
When ever the Park Brake is ON the Park Brake light will light up. I did not find where you could set the Park Brake to “the breaks are to set automatically when the levers are returned to neutral,”When the levers are returned to neutral, it is in neutral with no park brake. If you leave the seat the park brake should come on. To keep from creeping you will need to touch the park brake button, the push it again when you want to move.

If it creeps on level ground it may need the neutral position set. Normally have a Dealer do this.
If you have any more to the question, please reply.
