Autocommand wont move

When it happened to one of ours dealer had to put the laptop on it to get the handbrake to release seems it get confused after a jump start somtimes
 
Turn ignition on. Press foot brakes. FNR lever into neutral position. Press and hold neutral button on end of lever. You will here the park brake motor go off then on again. This is the park brake re initialized. If that doesn't work then its a laptop job to re configure everything

Starter motor can draw excessive current when cranking causing to wipe the ECU settings too.

have seen it a few times even though they will start the tractor, but it just won’t go 😡

A lot of things will, nothing now should really be jump started due to surges.

It didnt work but dealer mechanic said put it in park, that did the trick, holding the neutral button dowN in park

Would disconnect battery, charge it properly on a bench charger and then reconnect. If that doesn't work, dealer job.

the problem is most people need the tractor there & then, and probably don't have a spare battery kicking around.

Fair call though, it would be good to charge the battery properly when possible.

Yes, but having just done this with a JD 6920 I wouldn't let an alternator charge a dead flat battery again. The alternator got very hot even to the point that I shut the tractor off and hit it with the airline to cool it down. Charged the battery proper and no problems.

I beleieve it's better to try and charge a flat battery on a machine at tick over but I was trying to sharpen the forager at high idle which probably caused the trouble. Less current at idle.

I guess one way around this is to leave the jump cables on between the two tractors for a bit to let the battery equalise for a bit too.
