My 416D Backhoe has about 2400 hours on it but a few weeks ago, the digital hour meter went blank. It is a model 197-8832. I wiggled the wires thinking it might be due to oxidation on the spade connectors, but it is still blank.
Question 1: Any way to test these?
Question 2: Can Cat retrieve the hours from the meter and program a new one to start at the same hours?
Question 3: In order to check power to the terminals, can anyone tell me what the three wires should be? (I read somewhere that pin #1 was 12V+, pin #2 was to ground, and pin #3 was also 12V when the machine is running... Can any of you experts verify this?
I know you are all busy, so if you manage a reply, thank you in advance.!!!!
