JD 310D Backhoe Electrical issue.

Robert C. I have the above backhoe. When running, all of the dash lights are lit and the battery dies during running. When it sits, the battery stays fine.

Any help here?

Leonard When you say all your dash lights are lit, do you have a big "Red Stop" light flashing as well? If so then you have a direct short somewhere in the system. Have you looked under your dash to see if mice or some other rodents have chewed your wiring and caused a short? Also look under the hood or any where there is wiring that could be shorted. I have also seen the alternators short out and cause your problem but usually that will kill the system entirely.
