SCC 002602.18 – Hydraulic Oil Level Low

SCC 002602.18 (SCC 2602.18)

Code: 002602.18

Shortcode: 2602.18


This error code indicates that the hydraulic oil level is low, causing all Selective Control Valves (SCVs) to respond to open loop control only. Low hydraulic oil can affect the performance and efficiency of the hydraulic system.


When this code is detected, the SCC functions will be degraded, impacting the overall performance of the hydraulic system.


Check Hydraulic Oil Level:

  • Inspect the hydraulic oil reservoir and ensure it is filled to the proper level. Refill with the recommended hydraulic oil if necessary.

Inspect for Leaks:

  • Check the hydraulic system for any signs of leaks. Repair any identified leaks to prevent further oil loss.

Inspect Hydraulic Filters:

  • Ensure hydraulic filters are clean and not clogged. Replace filters if they are dirty or damaged.

Monitor Hydraulic System:

  • Continuously monitor the hydraulic system to ensure the oil level remains within the recommended range.

Consult Technical Support:

  • If the issue persists after refilling and inspecting the system, contact technical support for further diagnostics and assistance.


  • Maintaining the proper hydraulic oil level is crucial for the efficient operation of the hydraulic system and to prevent damage to hydraulic components.
