CLC 002050.06 – High Circuit Current Detected in Cab Load Center. John Deere Critical Advisory.

CLC 002050.06 (CLC 2050.06)

Code: 002050.06

Shortcode: 2050.06


This fault code, CLC 002050.06, is triggered when the Cab Load Center (CLC) control unit detects excessive load current: over 130 amps when the circuit board temperature is below 115 °C (239 °F) or over 100 amps when the temperature exceeds 115 °C (239 °F), for a duration longer than 2 seconds. This condition can lead to potential overheating and overloading of the circuitry, risking damage to the control unit and connected devices.


To manage this high current situation, the control unit’s software initiates an automated sequence to shut down individual drivers to reduce the load current. The software allows 8 seconds before it shuts down the first driver, with subsequent shutdowns occurring at 2-second intervals. The shutdown sequence prioritizes drivers based on several criteria, including exceeding fuse ratings, a predefined order of importance, and proximity to fuse ratings.


  • Immediate Current Reduction: Promptly reduce the number of active drivers or load to lower the overall current draw.
  • Inspect and Repair Circuitry: Check the CLC circuit board for signs of damage or overheating and make necessary repairs.
  • Review System Configuration: Assess the configuration and compatibility of all connected devices and drivers to ensure they are not contributing to excessive current draw.
  • Regular Monitoring: Implement continuous monitoring of current levels and circuit board temperature to prevent recurrence.
  • Priority Adjustment: If necessary, adjust the shutdown priorities to better protect critical components based on operational needs.
  • Consult Technical Support: Persistent or unclear issues should be addressed in consultation with John Deere technical support for advanced diagnostics and guidance.


Preventive maintenance and routine checks are vital in managing the risks associated with high current levels in heavy-duty machinery. Ensuring that all components operate within their electrical specifications is crucial for safety and operational efficiency.
