    My CAT 226 stopped. Will not move and hydraulics do not operate. It is going up a hill about 20 degree angle. Engine runs fine and electric works on lights, gauges, ect...
    I have the manual. It is a 2003 and has worked great since I purchased it. Never had a problem until today. Thoughts?

    Any flashing/steady lights on the display?
    Is the fan spinning?

    Is hydraulic fluid at the proper level?

    Fluid is at proper level it appears. Since the unit is on a hill at about 20 degrees facing up the fluid indicator is full. Not at 1/2 of indicator. I am assuming this is due to the angle and tipped back.

    I was able to drag the unit down the hill to a level spot. Hydraulic fluid was higher than normal. I have drained enough fluid to bring it recommended level. Engine and electrical systems still fine but no Hydraulics still.

    No warning lights suggest the interlocks are working. Spinning fan says that the pump drive is OK.

    Another thought, when you turn the key on, do all the warning lights come on and then act as expected. ie. park brake light responds to the switch, armrest light comes on when you lift the armrest, etc?
