BIF 002348.00 – Overcurrent Fault in Headlights on Cab Frame. John Deere System Advisory.

BIF 002348.00 (BIF 2348.00)

Code: 002348.00

Shortcode: 2348.00


Error code BIF 002348.00 is activated when the Power Module PC0 detects an overcurrent condition, specifically a total amperage exceeding 40 amps at the A3 and D1 outputs. This condition typically indicates a short to ground or a defective component within the circuits of the E07/E08 headlights on the cab frame (full beam). The issue is closely monitored along with the right headlight on the cab frame (dipped beam), which is connected to output A3 and may also trigger additional diagnostic trouble codes due to current overload protection.


Current overload protection is activated to prevent further damage, potentially causing the affected headlights to switch off or operate intermittently.


  • Inspect Wiring and Components: Check the wiring and electrical components related to the A3 and D1 outputs for signs of damage, short circuits, or wear. Pay particular attention to the headlight wiring and connectors.
  • Test for Shorts to Ground: Use electrical testing equipment to test for shorts to ground in the circuits associated with the E07/E08 headlights. Repair any found issues.
  • Replace Defective Components: If a defective component such as a headlight bulb or wiring harness is identified, replace it to resolve the overcurrent issue.
  • Evaluate Power Module PC0: Ensure that Power Module PC0 is functioning correctly and not contributing to the overcurrent condition by incorrectly measuring or responding to the current flow.
  • Reset System and Recheck: After repairs, reset the affected systems and recheck to ensure that the issue is resolved and no new fault codes are generated.


Due to the potential for safety hazards associated with electrical overloads, it is crucial to address these issues promptly. Regular inspection and maintenance of the vehicle’s electrical system can prevent occurrences of overcurrent, ensuring both the functionality and safety of the lighting and other electrical systems.
