9790 weird electrical issue after jump start

Finished harvest just prior to Christmas. Brother left the autosteer truned on over Christmas and flattened batteries dead. When him and Dad went to jump start it start the cleandown and get it nearer to a battery charger, all sorts of weird and wonderful things happened. A selection of lights in the overhead console are on and flashing ****** OPEN for the selected item, as well as the auger thinks it is in when it is out, the oil pressure gauge is way over on high, and the hour meter for both sep and engine hours is reset to zero.

Any ideas?

Just a guess but, unhook the batteries and hopefully everything will reset itself. I would try that first. And maybe charge the batteries full while you have them unhooked. Good luck

Can't see a problem!
Ow, this feels expensive.
I imagine you have completely disconnected power from the combine to the battery for a period of time?
Hopefully that would/will reset everything.
That's the only idea I have, basically the old computer fix trick.
May your end of 2012 be so simple, giving you a happy start to 2013!

Have to agree

Hopefully the above advice does the trick. Jump starting with all the electronics is iffy at best. I was thinking the same thing, disconnect batteries and leave disconnected for a while, hour or so. Make sure batteries are fully charged and holding that charge, may want to replace them.

Managed to leave the sieve lights on in one of ours over Christmas, went to start boxing day and dead flat. Luckily no problems this time, but in the past we have had circuit boards fry from this. Apparently they can't handle a real slow current draw down from such an event. I would remove the batteries and fully charge or replace. Good luck

Thanks to an AgTalker for the suggestion, it turned out to be a simple fix. When the batteries drained right down the combine reverted to default setting in the control panel setup menu, thinking it was a Gleaner. Set it back to 9790 and all seems good.

Don, the only thing that seemingly hasn't been 'fixed'is the hour clock has remained reset to zero. We have a new combine with only 1.2 engine hours.

I get it, the default setting is for the big brother more capacity Gleaner. Its nice it was a simple fix.

With this newer equipment and circuit boards what is the proper way to jump a tractor or combine when you come to the field and everything is dead? Are you suppose to take the day off while the batteries charge?
