    Crap....oops - parking brake light

    So while I was installing my new rear work light, I accidentally shorted my wrench across the +/- terminals of the battery (got a quick jolt)

    Overall the tractor seems fine, but I did notice that when I engage the Parking brake, the light no longer comes on indicating the parking brake is engaged. However that same light DOES come on when I cycle the ignition (so I know the bulb isn't blown.)

    Any ideas where I should look to fix this? I'm assuming this happened when I shorted the battery (was attaching the neg wire to the battery and just got a little sloppy handling my open end wrench - next time I'll put a cloth across the + terminal to make sure I can't hit it.)

    Make sure the switch for the parking brake light is adjusted correctly. Check for blown fuses. If all that is good start checking for voltage at the switch and work your was back to the battery.

    There's gotta be a switch on the parking brake lever somewhere that controls that indicator lamp. I'd try jumping that switch and see what happens as a quick starting point.

    I don't have access to a wiring diagram to see the fuse allocations and where fusible links might be... Hopefully someone will chime in with one.

    What model do you have? I don't believe my 1026R has a parking brake light, so now you have me thinking! Do they all have them?

    1025R - by parking brake light - I mean the idiot light in the instrument panel that indicates it' s engaged. It works when the ignition is cycled, just doesn't illuminate when I engage the brake. It's wierd.

    I was thinking I had blown the fuse or bulb, but the fact that it works just fine when cycling the ignition means the circuit should be fine.

    Yup, we're on the same page... Hmmmmm, I don't remember seeing the dash light for the parking brake on my machine. I'm gonna go check because I want a light too if I don't have one, lol!

    Look for it in the lower RH corner of the display - Circle with a P in it.

    I'm thinking there must be a relay or something between the pedal and the battery so that the power still goes to the idiot light when the ignition is cycled (not getting a signal from PB, but from start-up), but it doesn't when the brake is set.

    Late 2012 1026r here and mine has the brake light. Stays on as long as the key is on and the brake latch is engaged. Does not light when brake is being used as "brake". Check for switch... on the latch linkage???? (maybe..?)

    Maybe need a reset

    Just about everything has a microprocessor in it nowdays. The dash on the 1025R appears to have one judging from the rpm display and the way the indicators test themselves at startup. When you shorted the battery momentarily, the program in the microprocessor could have crashed. I would try disconnecting the battery for about a minute and then reconnecting it. This should allow the microprocessor to reboot properly. It may be all that you need to do.

    You know what? I think I know what I did. I remember now disconnecting a single circuit under the lower cowl when I was routing the wire through the engine and back to the ROPS. I don't think I plugged that sucker back in after I finished up the routing.

    Out of country on a business trip at the moment and will have to check it when I get home. 99% sure that's the culprit. Thanks.
