    All,

    Massey 6170 lift arms not moving again. See pics ABCD, AB, CD flashing after driving today.

    Also, picture on power when turned off, third pic.

    Testing times...... Any ideas. Sell it

    By any chance would the console for working the lift have got wet/damp? Heard about something like this happening before

    Check fuses under the air cleaner.the red and yellow wires at the box above the right steps and the earth’s.
    It’s usually a small enough problem but finding it could take hours.

    the abcd and lift problems are completely separate computers so you have multiple problems which suggests the starting pioint would be the battery connections and fuses under air cleaner as @jpt mentioned

    Thanks JPT. Fuses all good, checked these. Plan to trace all wires back from battery. Would it be worth replacing wiring completely and go direct from battery?

    Just because a fuse looks good doesn’t mean it is,id replace with new to be sure,you can test the yellow and red wires for current at the box with a bulb or run a new length of wire temporarily to see if it does anything for you.
    Is your alternator working correctly,an under or overcharging one can create havoc.
    There’s a pressure switch near the spin on filter on the right rear lift cover check that both wires are properly connected if the are pull them off and loop them that’ll rule out that switch.

    Also these fuses are not in the fuse box did you check the 2 special fuses in the battery compartment itself ?

    But the biggest problem is power remains on the dash when key switch is switched off. I put a kill switch on which has helped draining of the batterys.

    Why is power remaining on. What autotronic pins keeps it on?

    That switch near the filter is the pressure switch if it’s faulty it won’t release the hydraulic pressure to let the box
    Sleep.
    Edit,just found a thread on tff that might be some help.

    We had that on the Class during the winter (Gimma backend) . It seems to have sorted itself. On the Fendt I saw a mechanic putting a meter on the Battery lead and it was quite some time before it went to sleep.

    On the older 3000 series MFs wasn't there a switch on the clutch pedal that would "wake up" the autotronic for a few seconds when you pressed the clutch with the key off , maybe check if that switch is working ?
