    Getting 39-13 ----40-12-----dr2 on my display panel. everything works fine except the aux. hydraulics. Called bobcat and they said to replace the joysticks and harness at $2500.00 ouch..... really.. The 39-13 comes up when you first start the machine and when you go to press button for aux. hydro the light does not light and then the 40-12 and dr-2. The weird thing is I got it to work one time and now cannot get it to work the aux. Unplugged the connections and didnt see anything no water or dirt. Can any of you guys helppppp me please?? Thanks.

    If it was me, I would start by looking at the wires coming from the controllers, if not mistaken somewhere the 2 sides come together, sounds like something is rubbing.

    Well I have spent the whole morning searching only to find nothing. I have made contact with bobcat again and they said that both joysticks and wire harness have to be replace due to bobcat not producing my part number that is on the joysticks. I think if I could find the left joystick it may solve my problem?? Does any one know where I could find a replacement just for the left side bobcat #6689920? Thanks.

    So can you get the machine to move at all? or does it lock out?

    Yes machine operates fine just does the three beeps when you first start it and the 39-13 comes up. Everything operates except the auxillary hydraulics to operate my grapple. When the code comes up, if I start messing with the high flow button and moving the toggle on the right joystick is when I get the 40-12 and the dr-2. Thanks man for the reply...

    Unfortunately I have the hardest time finding bobcat parts anywhere except from the dealer.
