BCU 002876.07 – S127 MultiFunction Lever Fault (Turn Signal). John Deere System Advisory.

BCU 002876.07 (BCU 2876.07)

Code: 002876.07

Shortcode: 2876.07


Error code BCU 002876.07 is triggered when the Basic Control Unit (BCU) of a John Deere vehicle detects an unrealistic value from the multifunction lever specifically related to the turn signal operation. This diagnostic trouble code suggests a potential malfunction in the lever itself, such as a sensor issue, wiring fault, or a problem within the control circuit that interprets the lever’s position or signal.


The system may respond by failing to activate the turn signals as commanded or by exhibiting erratic signaling behavior, which could impact vehicle safety and communication on the road or in the field.


  • Inspect Multifunction Lever and Connections: Examine the multifunction lever and its connections for any signs of damage, wear, or corrosion that might affect signal transmission.
  • Test Lever Functionality: Use diagnostic tools to test the electrical signals being transmitted by the multifunction lever when the turn signal is engaged. Verify that the values correspond to expected parameters.
  • Check Wiring and Circuitry: Ensure that the wiring from the multifunction lever to the BCU is intact and secure. Look for any breaks, shorts, or loose connections that could be causing the incorrect values.
  • Repair or Replace Faulty Components: If a fault in the lever, wiring, or associated circuitry is identified, repair or replace the necessary parts to ensure proper functionality.
  • Reset the BCU and Clear Diagnostic Codes: After making repairs or adjustments, reset the BCU to clear any stored diagnostic trouble codes and reinitialize the system. This ensures that all repairs are recognized by the system and that it functions correctly.
  • Test System Operation: Conduct a thorough test of the turn signal operation following repairs to confirm that the multifunction lever is functioning as expected without further issues.


Regular inspection and maintenance of vehicle controls, such as the multifunction lever, are crucial for ensuring operational safety and reliability. Prompt attention to any signs of malfunction can prevent potential safety risks associated with communication and control systems on the vehicle. Proper functioning of the turn signals is essential for safe operation, particularly in environments where clear signaling is necessary to avoid accidents.
