Customer Question
I have a late...

I have a late 90s Bobcat 753 skid-steer loader. This morning the machine was moved from one spot to another then briefly turned off. Upon restarting the parking brake / traction light is blinking and the machine will not move. Moving the rocker switch for the parking brake does not do anything. When I hold the light switch down I get a code 15-03.

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

It's a Bobcat 753. The SN is###-##-####

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

Other than this is the first time the parking brake has operated in the 8 years I've owned it.

Not resolved yet. We are installing all new fuses right now.

15-03 is traction lock pull coil error

Check the fuses as always and let me know how you make out with the fuses but if you have a fuse that's continuously blowing in that circuit there could be a short in the traction lock solenoid itself or a short in the wiring in that circuit that you will want to thoroughly inspect the wiring and connector pins for problems or shorts. Reply back with the results and if we need to dig deeper into this.
