I leased a PC 138 and I am getting error code 05. Can you help me? Machine seems to be running fine but keep getting the code
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: That's really all I know. All fluid levels and guages are fine. I just can't figure out what this code means. I just don't want to hurt the machine

That fault is for the decelerator motor circuit. There are likely more codes logged in the monitor panel for the more specific parts of the circuit to help in troubleshooting. Are you aware of how to access them through your monitor? Let me know

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not how do I do that
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

E05 identifies the decelerator circuit but scroll through the monitor to get the complete codes. Press the buzzer cancel switch plus the auto decel switch for 2.5 seconds or more....

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Buzzer cancel switch and work mode selector up and down to scroll through codes.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

E308 E05 is Fuel dial input value error

E317 E05 is Decel motor system disconnect abnormalty

E318 E05 is Decel motor system short circuit abnormality

These are what your fault codes will be like. Let me know what you have and if they are other than what I just posted I will look them up for you
