Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I just returned from pulling a load and it seems to have a little more power than it did but now the check engine light is coming on for 3 seconds and going off for one second. Is this a code?

No problem. Yes if the light comes on. There's a code. I would like to pull the flash codes by using the cruise control switches. If you have never done this. Here is how.
Use the following procedure to retrieve the flash codes from the check engine light:
Turn the ignition key switch to the On position/ Engine OFF.
Turn the cruise control ON/OFF switch to the OFF position.
Move the SET/RESUME switch to either position. Hold that position until the yellow lamp begins to flash.
The yellow lamp will flash in order to indicate a two digit flash code and the SET/RESUME switch may be released. The sequence of flashes represents the system diagnostic message. Count the first sequence of flashes in order to determine the first digit of the flash code. After a two second pause, the second sequence of flashes will identify the second digit of the flash code.
Any additional flash codes will follow after a pause. These codes will be displayed in the same manner. Flash Code 55 indicates that No Detected Faults have occurred since the ignition key switch has been turned to the ON position.
Let me know what two digit code you get and I can tell you what the problem is.

The Codes are "F9H9" and "F9P8" and the warning light that is illuminated on the dash is the Hydraulics Off Indicator.
Technician: Cat Man, Cat Engine Expert replied 2 years ago
No problem.
Unfortunately those are not Cat engine codes. Sorry.
Were you able to use the cruise switches to try and pull engine codes?

I am working on a 320 John Deere SkidSteere and the (new) lockouts on the hydraulics for the loader will not unlock. The machine will travel forwards and backwards. It has 2 codes in it, F9H9 and F9P8 and has an indicator warning light on in the dash that means Hydraulic Off Indicator. We have changed hydraulic filters and check fluid levels. Seat and seat belt switches are working and switch for when you shut the door on the cab is working.
