PTI 524249.31 – Operator Not Seated With Transmission In Neutral

PTI 524249.31 (PTI )

Code: 524249.31



This error code is triggered when the operator presence (seat switch, active clutch, or brake pedal) is not detected while the tractor is in neutral. This code does not indicate a system failure.


The control unit limits the functionality of the equipment to prevent potential damage.


  • Inspect Seat Switch:
    • Check the seat switch to ensure it is functioning correctly and detecting the operator’s presence.
    • Replace the switch if it is faulty.
  • Verify Clutch and Brake Pedal Sensors:
    • Ensure the sensors for the clutch and brake pedals are working properly and detecting pedal engagement.
    • Repair or replace any faulty sensors.
  • Evaluate Operator Presence System:
    • Verify the entire operator presence detection system is functioning as expected.
    • Check for loose connections or wiring issues and repair as needed.


Ensuring the operator presence detection system is working correctly is crucial for safety and preventing unintended tractor operation.
