    I have a 2011 John Deere 310J Backhoe. Machine was operating fine.Took a lunch break and when I returned I tried turning ignition key to the first position (not start) allowing the glow plugs and computer to do its thing) lights came on for a split second on display, heard a click and then display went completely blank.

    No power to ignition switch. Changed ignition relay, no help. I'm not getting power at the relay either. New battery, no help. I have 13 volts at starter. Checked all fuses I could locate and all are good. ECU fuse on engine is good. Is there a fuse-able link or another fuse / relay somewhere not easily visible? Stumped. Any help would be appreciated.

    The only thing that works is the horn!
