Hi Martin, My name is***** will be glad to help. From your description it sounds like the park brake is not releasing to allow forward and reverse travel. Check and verify the park brake is releasing. Also another thing to check is the neutralizer circuit that disengages the transmission when the left brake pedal is pressed or the button on the control lever is pushed if equipped on the bucket controls. If equipped with that option check the wiring from the joystick for damage. Check for power in and out of the shift controller in each gear position and to the transmission solenoids. Check the transmission filter and oil for metal/debris indicating internal mechanical problems as well as burnt or discoloration of the oil. Let me know

Hi Dan Im back with this head ache!
The parking brake was disabled!
Because the caliper was leaking, someone removed the line from the caliper and plugged it!
I installed New brake caliper and a brake line, but I'm not getting oil pressure when I push the park break button switch ( park break is electric) first time I see a case machine
How is the process to bleed the park break caliper in this tractor?
How the park break switch work
There are four terminal in the electric connector
1) One terminal with 2 orange 19A wires with power when the ignition switch is turned on
2) a yellow wire that receive power when the park switch is turned on
3) a black with ground permanent wire
4) one terminal with 2 silver wires that I don't know what is for?
Transmission fluid look good and healthy
Replace the transmission filter and I found not dirt or debris on it
The tractor drive, like in second gear and show the 2nd gear at the instrument panel, suddenly the tractor lose the gear and show the N of neutral in the instrument screen
If turned off the engine, and cranked again, the tractor started driving nicely forward or backward again onto next episode happens!
I don't know where the solenoid go in this tractor!
I saw something that looks like a valve body but not visible solenoid's
I will appreciate you help
Thanks and have a great day!

PARKING BRAKE SWITCH:NOTE:

Make sure the machine has come to a complete stop before applying the parking brake.

Push down on the top of the park brake switch to ENGAGE the parking brake.

IMPORTANT:

The Parking Brake is a spring applied, hydraulic released brake. When the key switch is turned to the OFF position or the brake system loses pressure the Park Brake will engage. Always wear your seat belt when operating.

NOTE:

The service brake must be at operating pressure before the parking brake can be released. The Brake Pressure Indicator Lamp must

not

be illuminated when disengaging the parking brake. See Parking Brake in Operating Instructions in this manual.

Push down on the bottom of the parking brake switch, hold pressure on the brake pedals and put the transmission control lever either in FORWARD or REVERSE to DISENGAGE the parking brake

Hi Dan!
I really appreciate you help, but I think that we need go a little deep
The instructions to operate the parking brake are good but I need to know what happens in the system when the parking brake is applied!
1) What happened when the switch is pressed to apply the park brake!
What the 4 wires signals come or where the signals going?
2) If the oil pressure is constantly at the break caliper or just get there one time when the brake is applied?
3) What is the pressure amount that should show when checking pressure?
4) if can i check any especific pressure reading in any place when the machine jump to neutral by itself?
5) Where the transmission solenoid's are located in this machine and what reading in Volt's should I get in the electrical connections torch the solenoid's and when?
Thanks

Hi Martin,

1. Power goes to energize the park brake solenoid valve to open the valve to send oil to the caliper to release the parking brake. When the brake is applied the pressure is removed and spring tension takes over to hold the brake applied.

2. Answered in #1 and my initial post. It is spring applied..... pressure released

3. I do not have this spec readily available but it will be likely 350- 550 PSI

4 and 5. Please give me the full information from the transmission ID tag as this information will need to come from the transmission manual.
