I need some guidance. I need some help. I need some trouble shooting ideas.
My 4310 runs just fine mechanically. I have no issues with it.
Going back a few weeks or so ago, when I was snow blowing, my Curtis Cab roof work lights stopped working, and then a short time later my rear work light, and my roof mounted beacon emergency light also stopped working. I thought it must be a fuse, but changing to a new fuse did not resolve the issue.
Now all of the wires from the above mentioned lights are connected to the Off/ON heater switch that operates my Curtis Cab Heater. Th lights and heater were installed by a John Deere technician. The heater works just fine. BUT NOW, when I toggle the roof work and rear lights, or toggle the beacon light they don't come on. I have a separate toggle switch for the roof & rear light (they come on together), and another toggle switch for the beacon light.
I replaced both toggle switches. I replaced the Curtis Heater switch. I checked and re-crimped all the wire connections. I have power coming from the fuse box to the heater switch . . . the Curtis Heater turns on and off with no issues. The wire connectors from the lights are attached to the prongs on the back of the heater switch, as they were years ago. And the lights always worked just fine when connected in this manner.
I find it hard to believe that my three work lights, and the beacon light just stopped working within just a short time of each other.
Is there a way to test the lights without removing them from the tractor?
Have I overlooked something when trouble shooting my lighting problem?
Any suggestions on what else I can do to fix my lighting problem?
Can you suggest a new set of working lights for my 4310?
Thanks for reading this.
