It’s a 2007 year modelLights do not work, I don’t think glow plugs do. Had a hard time starting this morning. Nothing lit up on the instrument panel. No fuel gauge, parking brake, or glow plug light.Fuses all seem fine

Hi, I'm Wayne.

I'll be assisting you with this issue today.

Thank you for coming to Just Answer

Your Question is as important to us as it is to you.

Did this happen all of a sudden on the hydraulics??

The ground cable came off the battery during operation and the hydraulics just locked up. I can start the machine but I cannot unlock the hydraulics. Not lights on instrument panel, no working lights, I don’t believe the glow plugs are working either. Had a hard time starting back when the engine got cold.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago

Hi

Thank you for the response

did you repair the ground cable ??

Did it come off the battery or the frame ??

The battery, it’s repaired. The machine will start and run just not move.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago

Thank you for that

Check all your fuses when the ground came off the alternator

put out full charge and may have blown a fuse

No hydraulics work. It will not move. I bypassed the hydraulics for the boom earlier so I could raise to get into engine compartment.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago

Hi

Thank you for that

The power flow starts at the battery and goes to the starter. From the starter, it goes to one of the large posts on the start relay under the fuse panel. The outer relay. From there it goes to the preheat circuit breaker in the fuse panel. The circuit breaker is the round one. The power to the key switch does not go through this breaker. The terminal, on the, preheat circuit breaker, with the power coming from the start relay, also has the wire that sends power to the fuse block in the fuse panel. This wire supplies power to all the fuses in that block. The 15A breaker sends power to the key switch. Since you have no lights on the instrument panel, which uses the 5A fuse, I think your problem is between the starter and the fuse block. You can pick any place in this portion of the circuit to start your testing.

I hope this helps you

The start relay is not under the fuse panel. It’s on the firewall. The fuse panel is in the cab ceiling. I have 12 volts on the main post of both relays but nothing on the small wires coming off the back of the relays or the round/semi square relay that’s near the other relays on the firewall. I also have power in the fuse panel to the 5A fuse. I see nothing to resemble a circuit breaker either. Thanks

Hi

Thank you for the response

if you have no power to the small wire on the solenoid

run a temp jumper to the small wire and see if all starts working

I found there’s a piece of circuit board loose in the instrument cluster. May be the problem...I’ve ordered another panel.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago

Hi

Yes that will do it not opening a solenoid for oil return

Good find
