Hi I have a...

Hi I have a 2008 case 465 series 3. I just replaced the battery & washed under the ropes. After the batter was installed the machine moved. An hour later I tried to move it again. I put the lap bar down and the parking lock light turns off. I still can't get the machine to unlock

2008 case 465 tier 3

Sorry to hear you are having these troubles with this machine. Most commonly this would because by a safety interlock switch or wiring issue. I would check all of your wiring and connections for water intrusion since this occurred after being washed. It is very possible that there could be some moisture or water creating a short in one of the connectors. Test for power on both sides of each one of your fuses with the ignition switch in the on position and replacing any fuse with power only on one side. Swap your relays one at a time with a known good one for testing purposes as well. Another thing you want to do is check for any fault codes or warning indicators. Troubleshoot them individually. It is very possible that there could be damage to the machine controller as well from water intrusion or other electrical components. This is going to take a process of inspection and troubleshooting to isolate the cause of your problem. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
