BIF 002348.04 – High Current Fault in Full Beam Headlights on Cab Frame. John Deere System Advisory.

BIF 002348.04 (BIF 2348.04)

Code: 002348.04

Shortcode: 2348.04


Error code BIF 002348.04 is generated when the Power Module PC0 detects a current exceeding 30 amps at the output for the full beam headlights on the cab frame (lead 1029), while they are activated. This condition typically suggests a short to ground within the circuit, which can lead to excessive current flow and potential damage to the electrical system.


To prevent damage, the power module may shut down the affected circuit, deactivating the full beam headlights and potentially triggering a safety alert.


  • Inspect Wiring for Shorts: Carefully check the wiring associated with the full beam headlights, especially along lead 1029, for any signs of damage, wear, or potential short circuits. Repair or replace wiring as needed to eliminate shorts.
  • Measure and Verify Current Levels: Use a multimeter to measure the current flow in the headlight circuit when activated to ensure it does not exceed the safe threshold.
  • Replace Damaged Components: If any components such as connectors or the headlight assembly itself are found to be faulty, replace them to restore proper functionality.
  • Evaluate Power Module PC0: Confirm that the Power Module PC0 is functioning correctly and not contributing to the issue by improperly regulating current.
  • Reset the System and Test: After making repairs, reset the electrical system to clear the fault code and test the headlights to ensure they are operating correctly without exceeding current limits.


It is crucial to address high current issues promptly to avoid potential safety hazards and damage to the vehicle’s electrical system. Regular maintenance and inspection of the electrical circuits can help identify and resolve issues before they lead to more significant problems.
