We The error we get is 17-07 which is the lift/tilt solenoid circuit open. We cannot lift or tilt the bucket and we are not sure where to look for the circuit.
Technician: Curtis B., service manager replied 8 years ago
Look at the control valve under the floor. It is a foot pedal machine isn't it? It will have solenoids on top of the control valve, Check the wiring at these solenoids, It is telling you there is no power to the solenoid.
