    Firstly, to clarify, I speak as a beginner with no real technical experience

    According to my (user) manual the only alarm showing SE inside a circle is "boom raise sensor" However the code is shown as B-1. Don't know where this is or what it does

    Alarms with crank symbol seem to be either oil level (oil level sensor) or oil pressure. I don't have any reference to code 11 but the codes may possibly be different for different markets. Might be worth looking for an oil level sensor, although this is only supposed to alerm when the ignition is first turned on

    Super Acera SK 100 Code

    Cobra Ford 69
    The B6 Code says that the low pressure sensor for the bucket dump circuit is not functioning or disconnected. This sensor is connected to the pilot line in a manifold, probably behind the operator's cab under the air cleaner. As I am and my source is not familiar enough with Gray Market SK 100's which were never imported to the North American market, I cannot be exactly more specific where the sensor is. If like other similar models, look for a manifold with a LOT of those sensors. Carefully look for disconnected wire, easy or it will be the one near a flexing hose if a TRUSTED assistant quickly moves the joysticks in the bucket DUMP direction. Note, bucket dump should be a little slow now if ONLY used as a single function. This sensor assists the computer to control the pump for, in this case, bucket dump.
    Good Luck

    is your machine displaying english or japanese?
    this machine is more like the machines of today.
    the grey market models are a mix of todays and the mark four models.
    if you supply ser# of machine i might be able to provide some help even for future diagnostics.

    Just saw this, give me 24 hours and I'll get you your answer.
    But the serial number is required as the "Mark 5" or "Super Version" were made for the Japanese market and only a handful were "certified" by Kobelco America. The certification was literally a decal kit full of English decals.
    The Mark 4 machines were assembled in Calhoun, GA and were never made for the Japanese market as 4 is an unlucky number in Japanese culture. In Japan they went from the Mark III machine to the Mark V, and within the Mark V they were known as Acera-2 or Acera-3.
    It was a challenge when these machines first started hitting US soil because of the -2 and -3 on it.
    Your serial number will be stamped into the frame between where the boom cylinders mount to the frame and will start with YW.
    Let us know what it is and we can help.

    You remove your cover panels just inbehind the cab seat in the cab.
    The one computer has a grommet and under it on the computer board is a slider switch. One switch with a few sliders. It needs the proper fashion to work. My procedure i can fax will show which config displays english language.

    Going by memory,
    did this once.
    On the top cover of you one computer, with key off, power off,
    remove the grommet,
    under it will be a blue rectangular slider switch
    with " 0 " & " 1 "
    slide the one switch from the 1 -> 0
    and then slide the one second over from the left up.
    Turn key on and check language on the display.
    You should be in english language.
    If not repeat.
    The computer i am pointing out should be on the second tier from the top.
    Unscrew and lift the top tier back to view.

    Once in english the code should be easily figured out from this.
    More than likely its a bad sensor our broken wire to this sensor.
    Probably a pilot sensor on a teed fitting to a spool or travel pedal under the cab.

    Crank symbol is related to an engine code.
    Likely a bad eng prs sensor. If it lowers the eng rpm likely eng oil prs.
    If this code displays after stem cleaning the engine the sensor has water in it. Most eng oil prs switches make contact to ground. Once eng starts and oil prs builds the contact to ground is broken as it lifts away.
    A leaking oil prs switch will also cause a code for loss of eng oil prs right at the switch.

    The switch that I found under the grommet had only a run and test position
    The test position was still in japanese
