I have a 272B...

I have a 272B skid steer and 4 months ago it quit running and threw the mismatched engine hp code. Called the local Cat dealer and they came out and said it was the fuse and the solenoid. Changed it and it ran for 4 months and now the same problem.

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

Cat0272DPB5X01089 model: 272D

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

Not that i know

check fuse and replaced it Cat dealer changed the fuse and power relay for the ECM fuse popped as soon as I turned key on
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Hi,

Thank you for the response.

Remove the wire from the fuel shutoff solenoid if you have an external one, and see if it pops again.

I will try that after work, i did put a 30 amp fuse in it yesterday (it takes a 20) and it fired up for about 10 seconds if that tells you anything. I was trying to get it out of the drive way. I will try disconnecting the fuel shutoff solenoid.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Hi,

Yes, sounds as if the solenoid is the issue.
