Bobcat Fault Code List that Every Owner Needs to Know

9 min read

You need to know the most common Bobcat fault code list because when you are using Bobcat, usually Bobcat fault code list will appear on the display. For those who use Bobcat tractors, excavators and other types of heavy machinery and encounter error codes every once in a while.

Here are the further information about the error codes, and how to get rid of them. Read the information well to make sure those codes won’t bother you anymore.

Bobcat Fault Code List

Some of them will be displayed down below. These are the codes often appear on the heavy machinery’s display.

Bobcat Fault Code List

Even though Bobcat is a reliable brand for farming and constructing equipment, errors do happen sometimes and these are the most common ones that you need to know:

Bobcat Error code 03-09

Error codes indicating that there are something wrong with the equipment or machine you are using. The error code of 03-09 is one of the most common codes that you will encounter. It indicates “Low battery voltage”. When your Bobcat equipment is using rechargeable battery, make sure there is still enough power to run the machine. If the power is low, recharge the battery as soon as possible.

Bobcat Error code 01-17

01-17 is the error code to indicate “air filter clogged”. When the air filter system is clogged by something, the machine won’t work properly. To resolve this problem, stop the machine completely and check the inside part of the air filter. Remove anything that may clog the pipe down there.

Bobcat Error code 09-09

When your Bobcat machinery is displaying the error code of 09-09, it means that the machine is in “Low fuel level”. The only thing to resolve this error code is basically refill the fuel tank and make sure that the machine can work properly again.

Bobcat Error Code M2303

Besides those error codes on the Bobcat fault code list above, you need to know about the error code of M2303, too. What is this error code about and how to resolve the problem?

The answers to those questions will be available down below. All you need to do is reading this explanation carefully and then you will understand it very well about how to get rid of the problem.

What is This Error Code About?

The error code of M2303 indicates that there is something wrong with the rear base solenoid. Usually it is the problem of unexpected shutdown on this particular part. There is front and rear solenoid on the machine.

They are electromagnets and have the job of control and manage the electric current of a machine. When one of them is not working, of course the machine won’t work normally.

How to Solve the Error Code?

As the machine is now in the state of having its rear solenoid broken, you need to remove this part and replace it with a new one. You can also bring the machine to a technician to see if you can salvage the rear solenoid and re-install it to the system.

How to Clear Bobcat Error Codes

Now that you know exactly the Bobcat fault code list and what they are about, the next thing to understand is how to clear the error codes so that you can use the machine normally again. Thankfully, it is very easy to do. You will just have to follow these steps down below and make sure that the Bobcat heavy machinery can be used normally again, just like before.

Figure out the Problem Source

The first thing to do on how to reset Bobcat code and get rid of the error is to figure out the source of the problem. Make sure that you know exactly what goes wrong with the machine, whether it is the oil, the fuel, or the parts of the machine.

Restart the Machine

After that, you can restart the machine to get rid of the error codes. Make sure the problem is fully resolved before you turn the machine off, leave it for a few minutes, and then try to turn the machine back on.

There is no need to get panicked when error codes appear on the display. Even when they are beeping and flickering, you can still use the machine. However, it will be so much better to make sure you resolve the problem first, and then restarting the machine to make sure any codes on the Bobcat fault code list above won’t frequently appear anymore
