Kubota g2160 power steering.
 
Hi, I have a Kubota G2160 and the power steering has stopped working. I have stripped most of it down and discovered the control box has an LED flashing 1 long and 3 short. I asume this is a fault code.
Does anyone know what 1 long and 3 short flashes mean, it does it from when the ignition is switched on and with the engine running and won't stop untill switched off?
I have tested the motor and it works fine. There is a sensor but I can't remove it its stuck in the steering coloumn.
I have a parts manual and the whole steering column has to be replaced, individual parts aren't available. I have a feeling this is going to be expensive.

Has anyone had this before?
Thanks,
Niguk68.

Update,
I got some good help from a dealer today and it didn't cost a penny. The problem may be that we fitted a new ball joint a few weeks ago between the steering rack and the front axle. After this you should re calibrate the steering because if you are out by a small amount the control box trows a wobbly.
The dealer faxed me through, firstly how to re set the control box and then re calibrate the steering. Once I did it it started working fine.
If anyone wants the proceedure send me a message and I will forward it. No special tools required but you have to remove the plastic cover that covers the steering and control box.

Kubota steering
 
I've had steering issues with my kubota G2160rs for many years, got tired of taking it to dealer so I bought a kubota repair manual..try this..there is a weird looking wire to the left of the battery as you are sitting on the tractor...it is by itself with a fuse attached that has a pull wire attached to it so you can pull it out with your finger.....motor running....make sure the tires are inflated properly and heading straight... Turn the motor off....leave the switch on....pull the fuse....turn the switch off...reattach the fuse...now check the steering. If it still doesn't work repeat the same steps and after you pull the fuse you need to pull the wire off near the oil filter on the right side as your sitting on the tractor.....then repeat the steps but put the wire back after you replace the fuse near the battery. It sounds crazy but it's easy and has saved me many dollars over time..and it works.
