ASU 524010.31 – Active Seat Raise/Lower Solenoid Circuit Fault. John Deere System Advisory.

ASU 524010.31 (ASU )

Code: 524010.31



The error code ASU 524010.31 highlights a malfunction within the seat raise/lower solenoid circuit of the Active Seat Unit (ASU) in John Deere machinery. This fault occurs when the ASU detects electrical current in the solenoid circuit when it should be off, or fails to detect current when the solenoid is commanded on. Such anomalies may suggest issues such as electrical shorts, failed solenoids, or improper circuit connectivity.


The seat is disabled while this code is active to prevent unintended movements or other malfunctions that could compromise operator safety or equipment functionality.


  • Inspect Solenoid and Circuitry: Thoroughly inspect the seat raise/lower solenoid and associated circuitry for signs of damage or wear. Check for any signs of electrical shorts or disconnections.
  • Electrical Testing: Conduct electrical tests including voltage and continuity checks on the solenoid circuit to diagnose potential issues accurately.
  • Replace Faulty Solenoid: If the solenoid is found to be faulty, replace it to ensure correct operation.
  • Secure Wiring Connections: Verify that all wiring connections are secure and in good condition. Repair or replace any damaged wires or connectors.
  • Reset and Test the ASU: After repairs, reset the ASU system to clear the fault code. Test the system to ensure the seat raise/lower function operates correctly across all commands.
  • Continuous Monitoring: Monitor the operation over time to ensure that the issue has been fully resolved and does not recur.


Effective and timely troubleshooting of solenoid circuit issues is crucial for maintaining the performance and safety of the active seat system. Regular maintenance and checks of the electrical systems can help identify and resolve such problems before they lead to more significant equipment failures.
