 JD 431O Indicator Light

Hello. After spending a year reading and learning from the messages posted on this board I finally made THE PURCHASE. I just got my new 4310 hydro with 430 loader and 72 inch mid mount mower this evening. I don't know who is more excited, my 3 year-old son, my father in-law or me!

I have only played with it a little bit, but the indicator light on the fender seems to come on when I go down hills or banks (not very steep). When this happens, the tires lock up and nothing happens when I push the hydro pedals. After I wait a several seconds, I can push the pedal and the tractor will move until it locks up again. It doesn't do this if I am going up hill. It did the same thing several times on flat ground when I raised, lowered and surled the bucket. Is there anything I can check or should I just call the dealer? This is my first tractor so I don't know a whole lot about tractors in general.

Thanks for everything you guys have taught me and the additional knowlege I will gain from this board.

Domenico

Just a wild guess but it sounds like a safety switch on your seat is set too sensitve, so that when you go down hill with a little less weight on the seat it is indicating you have been booted outa your seat and locks up to save you.

If the code light flashes four long blinks , it is an out of seat error.

Thanks for the help. It was the safety switch. I adjusted the seat and it is fine now. Unfortunately, it has been a busy weekend and the rest of May will be the same. So far, I only have 4 hours on the tractor, but I have only been on it half an hour. My father in-law has spent most of the time on it and he really likes it. I feel like a little kid who is not allowed to play with his new toy! Oh well, I am sure I will get tp lay eventually.
