Re: Cat 252B electrical issue

Hello 1320cattle, Our apologies for the delay in response.  I've reached out to our skid steer product specialist and the issue you are experiencing is very difficult to diagnose without examining the machine.  We highly recommend that you get in touch with your local Cad dealer to assist with trouble shooting, http://www.cat.com/en_US/support/dealer-locator.html

Cat 252B electrical issue

[ Edited ]

I have an 06 252b skidsteer. I just got it about three weeks ago. I was using it today for about three hours. It ran fine, no issues. I shut it off and came back hour later and it would not start. The instrument panel would light up but it was real dim and flickering. I could hear the relays in the engine compartment rattling like they were getting low voltage. I thought maybe the battery was dead so I jumped it with my truck. Nothing. I started unplugging the relays on the right side of the engine in an attempt to find the one making all the noise. I think there were four. I unpugged three and the one furtherest away from the engine door was still making noise. I unpugged it and the noise stopped. Plugged them back in starting with the last one and working in reverse. Three of them made the rattling sound now. Prior to this the longest I have used the machine was about 30 minutes. It had never done this. Any help would be much appreciated.
