RPT 524252.15 – Rear PTO Solenoid Valve, Current Too High

RPT 524252.15 (RPT )

Code: 524252.15



This diagnostic trouble code, RPT 524252.15, is generated when the RPT control software detects that the current at the connecting leads of the rear PTO solenoid valve is too high. This indicates a short circuit to ground.


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


Inspect Solenoid Valve Wiring:

  • Check the wiring and connections for the rear PTO solenoid valve for signs of damage, corrosion, or short circuits to ground.
  • Repair or replace any damaged wires or connectors.

Test Current Levels:

  • Use diagnostic tools to measure the current levels at the connecting leads of the rear PTO solenoid valve.
  • Ensure the current is within the specified range when the solenoid is activated.

Verify Solenoid Operation:

  • Test the solenoid for proper operation and ensure it is not drawing excessive current.
  • Replace the solenoid if it is found to be faulty.

Update Control Software:

  • Ensure that the RPT control software is updated to the latest version.
  • Apply any available patches or updates that address current regulation 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.


High current levels can cause significant damage to the solenoids and the PTO system. Regular inspections and maintenance of the electrical components can help prevent such issues.
