RPT 523815.00 – Solenoid for PTO Speed 3, Current Overload Protection Active at PAP Control Software

RPT 523815.00 (RPT )

Code: 523815.00



This diagnostic trouble code, RPT 523815.00, is generated when the PAP (Power Accessory Point) control software measures a total current above 40 A at the outputs to the solenoids for PTO speeds. This indicates a short to ground or a defective component in one of the monitored circuits.


When this error is detected, the functionality of the rear PTO is significantly limited or entirely non-functional.


Inspect Solenoid Circuits:

  • Check the wiring and connections for the solenoid circuits for signs of a short to ground.
  • Repair or replace any damaged wires or connectors.

Test Solenoids:

  • Use diagnostic tools to test the solenoids for proper operation and current draw.
  • Replace any solenoids that are found to be defective.

Verify Current Levels:

  • Measure the current levels at the outputs to the solenoids to ensure they are within the specified range.
  • Address any issues related to excessive current draw.

Update Control Software:

  • Ensure that the PAP control software is updated to the latest version.
  • Apply any available patches or updates that address current overload protection issues.

Consult Technical Support:

  • If the problem persists, consult with technical support or the equipment manufacturer for further assistance.
  • Provide detailed error logs and current measurements to aid in troubleshooting.


Current overload protection is crucial for preventing damage to the PTO system and ensuring safe operation. Regular inspections and maintenance of the electrical components can help prevent such issues.
