We have a 555E Ford NH backhoe with open ROPS. It was in our shop for hydraulic work, and when we finished we washed it off. When I got on the tractor To move it all the warning lites and buzzer were on with the key off. After some checking I looked under the seat at the fuse box, the circuit board was smoking. They use an unprotected curcuit board. The dirt was about 2 in. deep covering the board and it got wet and shorted out. Only $593. to replace it. I've never seen anything so stupid in my life. It just sits on 5 rubber isolators, there is no cover no seal, just the seat base bolts down over it. What did I learn from this, I'll never wash this **^$#@!%^&&^& again. Oh, this is on top of the $2300. we just spent to replace the "obsolete" swing cylinders on this 1996 model year machine.
