 bx23 electrical problem

I'm wondering if there is a quick fix for a problem I'm experiencing with my bx23.

Yesterday, I decided to put the FEL and BH back on before I send it in for the 50 hour service. It started right up after sitting 2 months. I got the FEL on with no problems. I then backed up to the BH and stopped the engine to pull off the 3 point hitch. When I went back to start the engine nothing happened. Totally dead...almost. The dummy lights were real dim. The starter didn't turn over at all. When I turned the key off, I heard a relay clicking very fast for about 2 seconds. I thought the battery was dead so I charged it. Still the same results, the starter didn't turn and the relay clicked for about 2 seconds when I turned off the key. I tried a different battery with the same results. Another thing I noticed is that with the key off, and the hazard lights on, the relay makes a real fast clicking sound and it sounds like a buzzer. Any ideas?

The reason I say quick fix is that it just so happens that I have the dealer coming next week to pick it up for the 50 hour service. Sure would make it alot easier if I could drive it up on the trailer.

clean the battery terminals on the batteries and the terminals on the tractors. Clean the washers and the fittings on the starter end. Once all the connections are clean see what happens. Most of the time this will fix the problem. Does your tractor have a cut out switch on the seat or shifter.

I don't know of a quick fix for your problem as it sounds like there is a definite problem in the electrical system. I'd start by pulling the fuse for the hazard lights and see where it leads you with the relay as to a change. You more then likely have a ground problem that is back feeding.

No insight in to your tractor not cranking but if the dummy lights are the front lights and if your BX came with the same headlights my B did you can place a higher wattage bulb in them. Orginial wiring and light fixture worked very well with the new bulbs.

Wish I had come across this before adding additional work lights.

Sounds to me like you may pinched some wires when you put the FEL back on. Some them hang down pretty low in the area where the loader sits on the frame.

Good point. Sounds like a dead short and that certainly would cause one...........

 bx23 electrical problem

thank you all for your responses.

-I cleaned the battery posts and connections but the problem is still the same. Doesn't seem to be a problem with the starter since the hazard lights won't even flash and the relay sounds like a buzzer.

-Yes, there is a push button cutoff switch under the seat and it worked fine when I tested it with my ohm meter.

-I checked all around the FEL and didn't see any pinched wires.

I checked the fuses under the console and they were all good. I pulled each one, and was able to isolate which fuse controls the relay/ or what I think is a relay. The device making the buzzing sound is mounted under the console on the back wall up high directly behind the negative post of the battery. It has 7 wires going to it. Is it a relay?

I also check the current draw from the battery and it is less than .4 amps with the hazard lights on. 0 with them off. A ground loop is a definate possibility.

It would be easy to isolate the faulty component with a wiring diagram.

I checked it over again and there are not any wires pinched between the FEL and the frame. I'm trying to find a wiring diagram so I can track the problem down. I spoke to the dealer today and he didn't seem to concerned about being able to get it running so we can load it on the trailer. He said he has ways of getting around those problems. I'm guessing he has either repo'd a few or knows excactly whats up.

I thought that the warranty should cover these problems seeing that you only have 50 Hrs. on it? Unless maybe you don't use it often and it is a few years old?

I'm pretty sure the warranty will cover it. It is less than a year old. I've pretty much given up on trying to figure out the problem. Without a wiring diagram, it is pretty hard. The dealer will be picking it up on Monday so I'll just leave it alone until then. I'm sure he can figure out a way to get it loaded on the trailer without to much trouble. I appreciate all the responses from you guys. thanks
