The excavator has a 12 volt, negative ground electrical system. The electrical system is protected by fuses located under the right side cover of the excavator (Item 1) [Figure 50-10-1]. The fuses will protect the electrical system when there is an electrical overload. The reason for the overload must be found and corrected before starting the engine again.

The battery cables must be clean and tight. Check the electrolyte level in the battery. Add distilled water as needed. Remove acid or corrosion from the battery and cables with a sodium bicarbonate and water solution.

Put Battery Saver P/N 6664458 or grease on the battery terminals and cable ends to prevent corrosion.
