Re: John Deere 3038E review (poor)
Thanks 4x4, I was unaware of that thread, but it still doesn't answer any questions.
A thermistor is a just a "special" resistor that changes resistance a lot with a small change in temperature. Read the resistance and know the temperature. I don't see how its connected with the fuel solenoid...unless the solenoid can overheat...and needs to be monitored..?
I'm pretty new to tractors, but not to thermistors!
From the other thread, It sounds as if the dealer isn't able to determine the problem, so they just said replace the whole gauge cluster. The route cause of the problem has not been found, so it cannot be attributed to the design of the tractor. In fact, at this point, what limited information we have, one could just as easily point the finger at the dealer for not providing adequate trouble shooting services.
Electrical problems can be a bear to fix in cars, so maybe they just decided it would be more cost effective to replace the gauge cluster than to track down the problem...
Doesn't add up to recommending people don't buy this tractor....at least not yet...
