Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. What are you getting for fault codes?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
There are no codes
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
If I had codes would not be asking for help
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

All other functions are fine and it is only the bucket controls effected? Check the safety interlock switches and wiring harness for damage and corrosion, faulty switch, etc. Verify all fuses and relays test good. Of okay let me know if this has the ACS option or not. ADVANCED CONTROL SYSTEM

Are there any warning indicators or symptoms when this happens or it just stops moving??

I can't call I'm not by the machine. I was Monday when I first ask the question
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

Do you have the shop manual and if not I could help with that. The site sends auto requests for calls. Professionals are not employees of the site. I help on here in between jobs as time allows. Sounds like no one with Bobcat experience was logged in at the time you posted unfortunately.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I understand. I know the basics + what has me troubled is that the solenoids are good and getting power
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

Normally there would be a code for hyd lock, traction lock etc. unless there is a loss of power or ground to the controller or a controller problem
