    2305 Blinkers & Hazards Stopped Working Suddenly

    Hi all,

    New to the forum and to the 2305.

    Just picked it up, 2006 last week...was testing it out tonight and everything was working fine, including the blinkers and hazards...then all of a sudden they stopped working.

    I drove it back into the garage and checked the bulbs, fuses, wiring in the back and all looked good....it makes the 'blinking' sound still but no blinking lights or turn signals.

    The smaller lights work, though - so I am guess the ground is fine.

    Anyone have anything else for me to check?

    Thanks very muck in advance.

    Karl

    There was some instances of a failing diode that caused this, here is a thread on TBN about it: 2305 Diode Replacement
    Their forum is running terribly slow at the moment...

    Yes, Ken is correct. I just replaced all three of my diodes to solve the erratic functioning of my flashers. The technical manual has a test for them but, I found it was better to just replace all three at the same time as if one has failed the others are soon to follow. And besides, they are relatively inexpensive. The manual steps you through the whole process.

    Thank you both...phoned my dealer today and they agreed with diagnosis and said they would ship me the diode. Hope it works as it has for others that posted here. Now...just confirming, my 2305 is a 2006 - all years 2305 are identical?

    Thanks...this forum kicks arse!

    It doesn't matter what equipment you have, or how much (or how little) you will work on them, a Technical manual is almost as important to own as the machine itself!!

    Does someone out there have an excerpt from a ~2006 2305 on this topic they could share? I will buy one, but the diode will be here Monday and can't get a tech manual that quick.

    Thanks!

    The diodes can be hard to find, they are taped to the wire harness.

    Diode Part Number

    All,

    I just wanted to document the JD part number of the diode, it is: John Deere Diode LVU801851 and is 1.5A and is priced around ~$8-10 at the delaerships. DO NOT let the dealer or techs convince you to buy the LVU801850 - this is the 3A diode and IS NOT the correct diode for this issue.

    I am still awaiting my diode as it is hung up in the Thanksgiving Holiday mail!

    Thanks all for your help - this forum rocks!

    Happy Holidays to all!
