RENR2846 is testing and adjusting schematic, this would be very helpful
Mechanic: William Herren, OWNER replied 6 years ago
I am unable to locate a testing and adjusting for that schematic. It is not on CAT SIS. Can you tell me what that 30 amp fuse powers
Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
30 amp fuse for start and hydraulics. Blows as soon as key is turned on
Thanks
Mechanic: William Herren, OWNER replied 6 years ago
Will you remove the 30 amp fuse, remove all relays. Put key into position that is blowing fuse. Install 30 amp fuse and let me know if it blows. If it doesn't start installing the relays until it does blow. Take pic of fuse panel and let me know which fuse is blown and which relay you stuck back in caused the fuse to blow.

Thank you for your time but I am 100percent disabled and can not do the bending. So I guess I will have to call cat and have them sell a service tech. I thought it might be something easy but as an ex diesel mechanic it just does not work that way.
Thank you very much
Bob
