Hi ,My name is Dan. I will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here. Im not an employee of the site but I help on here as time allows in between jobs. Response time will vary depending on my work load , etc. What is your serial number? 873 is the model number. Do you have the deluxe panel on your machine or a keyed ignition?

I have the deluxe panel and every time I put code in and press enter it says error on the left side and the screen on the right side says failure
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 years ago
this is the code that is programmed in to the machine... The owner of the machine is allowed to program the start code so unless somebody went in and tampered with the code and changed it on you.

If your code that you as the owner programmed into the machine no longer works then you will need to have the dealer get into it to reset the password. They will want to verify proof of ownership as well if they don't already know you or have you in their system.

the machine sets out in the lean two and possible for people to tamper with it but couldn’t say for sure. The code we had was 2468I don’t know what to think.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 years ago
It is possible for a software-related issue as well but even in that case Bobcat would have to plug in to reset the system if the deluxe panel is powering up but not recognizing your code.
