Dreaded Error Code 50-56 Back Again!
Iím assuming the correct thing to do is resurrect this thread as opposed to starting a new one. If this is incorrect please accept my apology and move it where ever you feel is appropriate.
As you can see from the previous post(s), I had an issue with the Bobcat Error Code 50-56. After the new console CPU was installed all was good until February when we had 15 days of straight snow totaling 6 Ĺ feet, and the Toolcat started to lock up again with the 50-56 error code.
The dealer found that they could not find an available console CPU in the country! The dealer actually cannibalized another unit in their yard to get me back up and running. The temporary CPU worked for about 3 or 4 days and then it too was locking up with the 50-56 error code.
The dealer was able to find a new console CPU and came to me to install it. Everything was fine for approximately 60 to 70 hours which finished off the season. About a month ago, I started collecting my equipment from the driverís residences and bringing them back to the barn. The Toolcat sat unused until Monday night when I used it (or more accurately tried to use it) to move a trailer. It had only run about 10 minutes and locked up again with the error code 50-56. To make matters worse, it locked up sideways at my home blocking both garage doors and our daily drivers.
Out of desperation I pulled the driverís seat, center console, etc. and disconnected the wiring harness to the drive CPU controller and popped the dash console and disconnected the corresponding wiring harness. I reconnected both harnesses again and was able to move it out of the way. While the disconnect/reconnect does not solve the problem, it does allow some sort of reset so you can move the unit. Thank God itís summer!
The dealer is working on the issue but I wanted to post the most recent chain of events. Hopefully we will get to the bottom of this once and for all this time. I will post what ultimately happens! I still love my Toolcat(s), and I really love my dealer!
