 B5200 Electrical

Recently purchased B5200 keeps blowing the 10 amp fuse that connects the headlights,rear fender lights and the fuel guage. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this problem and what they did about it? Vehicular electric is not a strong suit of mine and I would appreciate any suggestions regarding repairs. Thanks

The first thing I'd check is if a previous owner replaced the standard bulbs with higher wattage ones. It is possible to get intermittent shorts, and finding them can be a problem. I hope that wrong bulbs is the answer, but more later if needed.

Tom, Thanks for your help but I really have a problem because I don't know what the correct bulbs should be as I do not have an owners manual. I have ordered one but it won't be here for two or three weeks. The tractor's lights and fuel guage workred fine for about two weeks and then stopped. I was hoping that there would be an easy way to remedy the problem? I would appreciate any and all help and suggestions.
Thanks,
AJ Verrinder

Stick a penny in the fuse box.

I'm speculating about the bulbs, because it's not all that uncommon for people to want brighter headlights and replace standard ones with brighter auto-store types. Generally, 10A fuses in lighting circuits and 35W headlights are fairly common. I wouldn't put in a larger fuse. A dealer's parts guy might tell you what the correct bulbs and fuse are, but I guess one of each bulb could be bought for comparison. The wattage of a bulb can't always be determined just by looking at it.

Finding the problem could be really difficult without a wiring schematic. I guess the fuse blows when the lighting switch is on. Here are a couple of things that might help. I'd spray the switch and all known components with contact cleaner. Then, I'd turn on the switch and start jiggling wires on the switch followed by the wires on each connector in the circuit that can be identified. Connectors include those in wiring harnesses as well as those on the lighting fixtures. If the fuse blows during wire joggling, then there's a good chance you can identify where it's happening.
It's good to have a supply of new fuses.

Another approach is to disconnect one component and run the tractor long enough so you'd expect the fuse to blow. If it continues to blow, reconnect the component and disconnect another one. There's a good chance that eventually a branch circuit that contains a short will be disconnected, and then the location will be known. An assumption here is that the bulbs are known to be standard. If 35W'ers were replaced with 55W'ers then the fuse may be marginal for the current draw. Marginal fuses may seem to blow at random. Removing any one component will stop the fuse from blowing, but actually there's nothing wrong with the circuit except for bigger bulbs.

Tom, Thanks again. I'll give you're test a try and when I receive the manual I'll trace the system. Thanks again!
