Narrative
Describe in detail what happened including the concern or potential issue, the environment (weather, terrain, fire behavior, etc), and the resulting health issue.
After pushing the containment lines on the Preacher Fire the dozer walking through the black went into limp mode. On the instrument cluster the service code was F393 and would not travel over idle speed even after shutting the engine off and restarting which restarts the computer. The dozer was loaded onto the lowboy and transported to the service department at John Deere. when the dozer was unloaded it started and ran with no issues. The code that was on was given to the service manager.
On 03/08/2017 the dozer was picked up from John dealer and they said that the wiring harness was cleaned and replaced. If the dozer had gone into limp mode 30/45 min. earlier it would've been on a direct fire line with 6 to 8 foot flames and a different outcome, damage to equipment or possibly operator. I will attach the pictures of the dozer and the harness.
Immediate Action Taken
Reporting Individual : please describe actions you took to correct or mitigate the unsafe/unhealthful event.
loaded the dozer up and tagged the equipment until repaired by service tech.
There were two other dozers on district available for initial attack if needed throughout the fire.
