    212 Wiring Question

    Not being familiar with the wiring on the 212 yet I have a wire (looks like a positive) that I am not sure what it does and could use some help. I am thinking it is a power supply for something but unsure if it is factory or an add on by PO.

    You need a wiring schematic which is specific to the serial number. Here is what I could find based on the info I have about the machine in the pics and other thread.

    Thanks a bunch for the drawings! I think that is the lead for the seat switch which is not present on my tractor at this time, so it makes sense. But I did notice in your second picture the serial numbers only have 5 digits, as in 31,000 - 70,000 and 70,001 - up. What's the deal with those numbers since my understanding is the serial numbers are six digits. Is there another serial number associated with these tractors? Thanks again.

    Deere makes rolling changes during the production run and the serial number of the machine tells more than just the year. The break that shows 70,001 - up covers all machines with serial numbers above 70,000. If you are thinking a six digit serial number 70,001 would show 070,001 on the tag. You have a late 200 series and Deere ran them into the 1xx,xxx the serial range.


    Or another way to think about it - 0 is used as a place holder for the six digit sequence.

    My 110 only has 4 digits. 2701

    I think the yellow wire is and accessory connector. The seat switch should be pink or purple, and if not installed it must be bypassed.
