Customer Question
Hi pearl, i have...

Hi pearl, i have a cat 216 skid steer, was running super until i hit a bump and lost all power. now it wont start. i have power to the first fuse box, but very limited power to the fuse box in the engine compartment. got any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Its a cat 216. i dont have the serial number as it is out in the field.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes, when i try to turn it on, there is no power, although i have tested and found power to the first box
