I guess I'm the odd man out who likes the electronics on modern machines. The way some of you talk you act like you haven't been able to put a crop in or take it off because of computer errors which I highly doubt is the reality.
A couple of things though:
1. Why is a failed computer not an acceptable breakdown? Again, they don't fail very often and much to the anti-computer peoples dismay they actually prevent much larger breakdowns by closely monitoring systems. People get mad because the computer prevents them from "limping though" a failure but in the end might save their bacon on a much larger mechanical repair. The rage people have towards "throwing codes" is very peculiar to me. When our combine starting blinking at us because of a failed injector on the engine, I was quite glad it did before the failed part caused more damage. It makes no sense that replacing a bearing or belt is "no big deal" but fixing a computer is the apocalypse.
2. You anti computer guys are useless. This guy had a legitimate question and you didn't help at all, all you did was start the typical "A lever doesn't break down" crap. I've used tractors with levers and tractors with switches and the levers can stay where they belong, in machines 25+ years old with the dinosaurs who love them so much.
Unfortunately for the OP your best bet is to call the dealer to find out what's wrong. Electrical problems are a hassle to find, the evil computer from the evil corporation might be able to pinpoint the problem quickly though.
