    I can not get my 2014 323e to crank over, also when I sit in the seat all the lights light up as usual, but gauges don’t move. I have checked relays, fuses, and key switch. There is power at key switch. There is a diode in fuse pannel, it checks out good, but is there any other diodes or fuses I could check? There also is no power at the f15 f17 and f18 fuses. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Welcome to HEF atc;)!

    Complete machine serial number for starters.

    How did you check the diodes in the fuse box? Is the top (V2) diode's arrow pointing towards the operator's seat? Is the diode (V1) below it pointing straight up?

    Ok, sorry for the slow response. I went after my fuses relays and diodes, cleaning and diolectrictric grease. It now starts, but I can’t get the brakes to release, will not move tracks, hole story is I bought this machine as a Parshal basket case, engine had hole in block and hydro system was completely disconnected. I have put a new engine in it, and connected the entire hydro system. Eveything works but it will not drive. Display will tell me to release to enable hydro drives then it tells me to release Park brake, any suggestions what to look at?SN#1T0323EJHEJ266668

    Hydraulic enable switch turned on?

    When you sit in the seat and pull the seat bar down, then release park brake, what specifically happens with the lights on the dash? Does the seat bar light go out when lowering the seat bar? Does the seat belt light go out after about 5 seconds after lowering the seat bar? Does the park brake light go out?

    Press and hold the menu button until service menu appears. Scroll too codes. Post any active and stored codes. Clear them and see if any come back.

    Yes seat light goes out, seat belt goes out, hydro pump lock goes out, but park break light stays on. I push joy stick and just a beep from alarm.

    Check all your fuses too.

    How do I check codes? I held menu till main menu options come up, then scrolled till I get to codes, I tried to select it, no luck, in fact I can’t select any of the options in the service menu. Fuses are all good

    Makes me wonder if your select button is defective.

    You did key on, press and hold the menu button until the words "SERVICE MENU" appear in the screen?

    Is your unit a keyless machine or does it use an ignition key?

    Post your complete machine serial number please.

    SN#1T0323EJHEJ266668 Yes it has key, and yes I held menu with key on, service menu did come up, I then scrolled down till I came to codes, but then I wasn’t able to select it. I am not able to select anything in the service menu. Am I doing something wrong. It seems as if the select button isn’t working. Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it

    You should be able to read codes even if you are not in the service menu. There is something going on with the monitor (EMU in Deere speak). I think it is related to the park brake issue. The EMU controls the park brake.

    The menu button works, your scroll buttons work, but the select button does not. Interesting. When you sit in the seat the EMU lights up. What happens when you key on after you sit?
