AIC 520286.11 – Armrest Hitch Controls Module Circuit Fault. John Deere AIC System Alert.

AIC 520286.11 (AIC )

Code: 520286.11

Shortcode:

Description:

This code, AIC 520286.11, is issued when the set rear hitch lower setpoint button on the armrest hitch controls module remains in a pressed condition for an extended period, combined with a detected fault in the quick raise/lower switch. These symptoms suggest a defective switch, which may be stuck, malfunctioning, or experiencing internal degradation, impacting the module’s ability to perform as expected.

Reaction:

This code, AIC 520286.11, is issued when the set rear hitch lower setpoint button on the armrest hitch controls module remains in a pressed condition for an extended period, combined with a detected fault in the quick raise/lower switch. These symptoms suggest a defective switch, which may be stuck, malfunctioning, or experiencing internal degradation, impacting the module’s ability to perform as expected.

Recommendations:

  • Conduct an immediate inspection of the set rear hitch lower setpoint button and the quick raise/lower switch for any signs of physical sticking, damage, or wear that could cause continuous engagement or faulty operation.
  • Test the functionality of both switches using diagnostic tools to verify their mechanical and electrical performance. Ensure that they return to their default positions after being pressed and do not exhibit any abnormal behavior.
  • Replace the defective switch or switches as needed. If both switches are integrated into a single module, consider replacing the entire module if individual repairs are not feasible.
  • After replacing the faulty components, recalibrate any settings associated with the switches and the hitch controls to ensure proper communication and functionality.
  • Perform a thorough system test to verify that all functions of the hitch controls are operational and no further faults are present, confirming the resolution of the initial error.

Note:

Keeping the control interfaces of machinery in good working condition is crucial for accurate operations. Regular maintenance and prompt attention to issues like stuck or defective switches can significantly enhance the reliability and safety of equipment operations.
