Help, jd 1025r popping ignition fuse.

Help please, my tractor is in the tractor hospital for the second time. Lately, when it gets dark and i try and turn on the lights. It pops the ignition fuse and kills the whole tractor. They have looked at it and cant duplicate the problem. Has anyone ever had this issue?
I would like to work on this, but the tractor is under warranty.

I know the post title seems wierd. I turn on light switch and tractor goes dead.

Re: Help, jd 1025r popping ignition fuse.

So, you trailer it to the shop, start the engine, perhaps engage the blades or whatever to use the same conditions that it blew the fuse), flip the light switch, and when you are there, the lights come on?

To me, this sounds like somewhere, a wire had rubbed through, and that only makes contact after you use the machine for some period of time, but when it's trailered, the wire shifts a bit so it doesn't short out.

The lights will come on when at the shop for them. Thanks for the input on the wiring. That makes sense to me. I'm also thinking there may be a short in the light switch.
They said they had the dash apart and checked all the wiring and could not find any problems with the wiring.

Re: Help, jd 1025r popping ignition fuse.

First, a diesel doesn't have an "ingnition" fuse because it doesn't have an ignition circuit. The main fuse that kills the engine when it blows should only control the fuel solenoid circuit and the lights should be on a separate fuse. It definitely sounds like something is intermittently touching where it shouldn't be. Are these factory lights or were they added by someone (you or a previous owner or even the dealer)?

My bad,opps, your right.
Your right, the lights should be in a separate fuse. I asked them that question, and they couldn't answer that question . Yes they are the factory lights.
When it comes back and does it again, I may look into it myself.

Re: Help, jd 1025r popping ignition fuse.

After doing some more research. I've found someone else having the same issue as my 1025r, but a 2016 1025r. They found the rops light wiring smashed behind the mounting bolt for the lights.
I talked to jd and they are going to look at that.

Was that the issue? Were they able to fix it?

I got my tractor back last friday. They wasnt able to get the fuse to pop again. They tried everything they could think of. I also had them wire in a battery shut off switch because simeone tried to steal my tractor last august when i was on vacation.
The other issue after i got the tractor new was the backhoe would not dig anything hard. They looked at it and found the pressures were set to low from the factory. They had to adjust the pressures. After that no issues.
