AIC 524101.02 – SCV VI Control Lever Switch/Sensor Conflict. John Deere System Notification.

AIC 524101.02 (AIC )

Code: 524101.02



This error code, AIC 524101.02, indicates a malfunction in the SCV VI (Selective Control Valve VI) system, where the detent switch on the control lever is conflicting with the sensor voltage readings from the E-SCV VI sensor. This discrepancy suggests that the physical position of the control lever does not align with the voltage signals being detected by the sensor, potentially due to a faulty sensor, switch, or wiring issue.


As a result of this sensor-switch conflict, the control unit has disabled SCV VI to prevent any improper operations or potential damage to the hydraulic system. This safety measure ensures that no hydraulic functions controlled by this lever can be activated until the issue is resolved.


  • Inspect the SCV VI Control Lever and Associated Components: Check the control lever and its detent switch for any signs of physical damage, misalignment, or wear that could affect its operation. Ensure the lever moves freely and engages properly in all positions.
  • Test the E-SCV VI Sensor and Wiring: Utilize diagnostic tools to test the sensor and its electrical connections. Verify that the voltage readings correspond to the lever’s positions. Look for signs of electrical faults such as shorts, opens, or irregular resistance that could be causing the mismatch.
  • Calibrate or Replace Faulty Parts: If the sensor or switch is found to be faulty, recalibrate or replace it. Ensure all connections are secure and correctly configured during the replacement process.
  • Functional Testing of SCV VI Lever: After repairs or replacements, conduct functional tests to ensure the SCV VI lever and its components are operating correctly and that the control unit can accurately interpret the lever’s position.
  • System Reset and Comprehensive Validation: Reset the system to clear any fault states and perform a comprehensive validation to confirm that all issues have been resolved and SCV VI is fully operational without conflicts.


Maintaining the accuracy of control levers and their sensors is crucial for the reliable operation of hydraulic systems in heavy machinery. Regular checks, timely maintenance, and immediate attention to discrepancies in sensor readings or switch operations are essential to prevent operational disruptions and ensure equipment safety and efficiency.
