Hello,

First, try using the backup switches to see if the throttle control is working. If not, then look for fuses marked G/A or engine. It could be just a failed fuse.

What is a BSR? I am not familiar with this term. That serial number is ***** to a 313B excavator. Is this a custom product designed for a certain job?
