The FHC is the Flex hydraulic controller for the hydraulic system. What other symptoms are you having with these codes? Loss of functions? Poor response?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It sounds like its whining when operating the back boom
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

Those FHC codes are not in the list I have here and since it is Sunday I wont be able to look into this further until tomorrow when I have access. In the meantime check the oil level and check the hydraulic filter for fine metal/debris indicating a pump or component problem occurring. Let me know.

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

Pump wine is an indication of cavitation( air or starvation of oil ) and a potential pump problem. You may need John Deere Service advisor plugged in with the laptop to troubleshoot this. For FYI on the FHC controller function, here is the patent description. Be sure to check all your fuses as I believe fuse 13 and 35 are for the controller.

Ok i didnt get a chance to remove the filter but i noticed around the filter its leaking a little bit and couple of hoses at the fitting were leaking too
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

I'd Grab a new filter and inspect inside the old one for fine metal. It will look like metallic glitter in the oil if you looked in the light while dumping it into a clean bucket... Let me know

Ok i will do it in the morning tks

Hi i asked local john deere they said to replace the small joystick Sounds better not whining but service light still on same code. 2724.07
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the followup. The joystick will need to be calibrated. John Deere Service advisor should be connected for calibration. I am not sure if there is a procedure without the laptop. What is your serial number?

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

I checked through my files and have little information on the FHC circuit faults. Inspect the harness for damaged, corroded connector pins and wiring and if ok Id reach back out to the dealer you bought your joystick from to see if they can plug into the deere software for live data readings and calibration of the controls. If brought to them there would be no field charge and should not take more than an hour to do.
