    Re: New Holland tc45

    Yes, remove the two screws for the gauge panel to find the fuses. #2 from the left will probably be a circuit breaker. Not sure, but I think it can be replaced with a fuse to check. It almost sounds...

    Re: New Holland tc45

    Scott, have you checked all of the fuses behind the gauge panel? Do you have power to the ignition switch?
