JD 1910/ 1895 Manual Seed switch

We bought a new to us dual tank (1910's)/ 43' 1895 disc drill. The previous owner had the Machine switch that turns on the meters re routed from the frame of the drill to a toggle switch in the cab. Today we run a cable and tested it when connect the 5v to the one terminal both clutches engage, and then from the same 5v to another terminal it makes the tank level monitors read full. When we put the clutch and bin levels together on the same post of a toggle switch and the 5v on the other side when switch the toggle switch the full levels are fine but the clutches wont engage. When measuring the voltage for the clutches it will read 5v energized when reading it with the bin levels it reads 0.32V, that tells me its a short and im losing my 5v to ground, or the level system is not a 5v which i don't believe it is.i wouldnt care if they read full all the time we have cameras in the tanks, im just annoyed that everytime switch the clutches on a bin will say almost empty.

i guess what i'm asking is why is the bin levels and meter clutch in the same plug and do they normally run off the same 5v supply.

Pretty certain the clutch solonoids are 12V -they are powered up from your 7 pin wiring harness- But there useless without the Canbus side ..

The canbus side talks too the computer which turns the tanks off/on... that side would show the low voltage u seem to have found ?? , 5 seems high, I woulda thought they would run around 2.5V ...

Id be a little careful, those tank computers are worth a fortune , wouldn't wanna send a voltage spike into there ....

I have no idea about your bin level sensors - is that cab switch a path too ground ? When it's on - everything should work ? Right lol!

I don't want to hijack this thread but i have a similar question. I was wondering if there was any way on a 1910 cart to have a with in the cab to turn the main clutch on and off? the way mine is set up right now i have to turn the clutch on and off by pushing a button on the screen and thats pain. The previous owner looks like he tried something similar to what the original poster is talking about he took two wires and tied them off of the height control switch thats located on the frame and ran them up to the cab it looks like but when I connected them to a switch it didn't do anything?. does anyone know of a good way to do this or is it not worth the time and trouble. I was gonna use the automatic height sensor as the switch for turning the clutches on and off but It turns on the seed to late and turns off the seed to late and if i change the values on the screen it doesn't seem to make a difference?

Did you calibrate the sensor?

Let's face it......

If it's a Seedstar2 system that uses 3 wires for the height sensor, only use two of the wires (Reb and black) to run to the manual on/off switch in the cab. Make sure you then select your sensor as an "Implement switch" in the cart set up section instead of a "height sensor". Implement switches use 2 wire system and a height sensor uses 3 wires.

You can adjust when the clutches turn on in your tool setup screen. I have mine set where as soon as discs move down an inch they turn on main clutch. 60' are slow to go down so I do this in order to have it engage right away for my section control to kick in if it needs to be. Clear? Doubt it
I'm saying you could get rid of the toggle and just run it normal with a quick turn on time.
