My 2006 CT322 is open station and does not have an entry door (cab or demolition). Last week, when I went to use it the day after a rain, the open door instrument panel light was on and it will not allow me to engage the hydraulics. I spent the rest of the day checking wires and connections and could not find any issues. The next time I was able to come back to it was 2 days later. The light was not on and everything worked fine. (All I did was sit in the seat and start using it as normal.) After this, I used it 3 days during the week for around 2 hours each time.
Then, it rained for 2.5 days. Later, on the afternoon of the last day of rain, I went to use it and the open door light on the instrument panel is on again. I spent the rest of that afternoon looking at connections again. I went back one day later and the open door light still comes on. (it comes on with the instrument panel when I sit in the seat.) I feel like this is related to moisture, but I am wondering if it is in the instrument panel. The seat switch and seat belt switch work perfectly as they should. I do not know of anything else to check. I was expecting to see a shorting jumper behind the instrument panel since I do not have a door, but I do not see one. There are several connectors behind the panel that are not used, so I do not know which could be the right one (if it is even jumpered outside of the instrument panel). Oh, FYI, it starts and runs, I just can not engage the hydraulics.
Does anyone have an idea of where the door switch would be connected in to the harness if I had one? Or does anyone have a schematic so that I can look for why it thinks the (non existent) door is open?
Thank you. I appreciate any ideas. Have a great day!
