I will opt out and let a more experienced tech assist on this.

I completely understand. I'm more of a truck tech myself and do some work on some machines for customers of the trucking companies, but not often.

Thanks for the reply and have a great day!

M1707 Hydraulic Lock Valve Solenoid Open Circuit

This means the solenoid harness or solenoid itself is open or has failed. Inspect for both. Let me know

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
You just repeat the code definition no thanks I just want my refund
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Thats right. an open circuit means just that. Not a fuse or relay problem "Lock valve solenoid" Open circuit.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
well I know that very well , more than a dozen of lock valve- solenoid installed on this machine the answer I am expecting is to guide which valve and where to start to put my meter.
