My M155 lights seem to be tied to a circuit breaker and keep cutting out. If I just run the road lights then it is fine but as soon as all the field lights are on with the HID's then they seem to heat up and cut out. Not that good when swathing in a field with power poles all through it! Any ideas where to look?

Our W150 was doing this also. Our jd dealer says this is a common problem. It's a 30 amp breaker that keeps kicking out. The dealership said to put in a fuseable link As a short term fix. We did this and the lights have stayed on since.

I'm also experiencing this problem. Seems to pose the symptoms of a soft relay.
My working lights(or road lights...scary) and radio will cut out together. It must be right on the edge because if I keep the radio off it lasts longer before cutting out.
Also the cooler the outside temperature the less of an issue it is.
I spent some time troubleshooting the other day pulling relays and fuses but have not isolated a relay that kills all the lights and the radio?? weird

Put me on this list too. My m155 doing it as well. Lights stay on 5 min and go out for 2 and then come back on. I tried to get circuit breaker but was told they are back ordered. I changed relay but did not help. To me the whole fuse box seems way too warm for some reason

you can put 2 breakers in parallel to increase the capacity and longevity, even if you cannot get the exact 30 amp use 2 20 amps and the capacity will increase, also check your grounds, if there is poor connectivity it will lead to resistance and higher current draws..

Last night when my lights kicked out I heard a snap up by the head light switch. Makes me wonder if the switch is part of the problem
