My 554xl has the basic Acutie monitor with it. Does anyone know anything about these and how to trouble shoot. My give all kinds of error codes. It thinks the bale has reach the preset size as soon as the roll starts sometimes. Then it thinks the roll has meet the oversize roll size then starts tying. It also gives a error that there is a short in ground on the tie arms. I have looked over all the wiring and can not see any bad wires. Iam thinking maybe it’s the monitor it self because of all the different codes it is throwing. Anyone have any ideas ? Yesterday when I was rolling the monitor would turn it self off and would not tie a roll. Lucky I was able to unhook it and tie them manually with just a toggle switch

Could be the pins in the connectors. My controller stoped auto tying. Traced it down to the loose connector.

I would check over the ground wires. Make sure the one from the monitor to the tractor battery is good and tight, and the one from the monitor harness to the baler chassis is good. Bad grounds can cause some very odd issues.

Last year I had to replace the sensor on the bale size indicator on my Vermeer and this year I had to replace the sensor on the tying arm. I looked the wiring over and imagined everything. After replacing those it was instant fix. If the monitor will boot up ok and give an error code it may not be it, although I am not an expert on them. As mentioned I would check the pins closely as I spray WD-40 on mine often and it helps lube and clean the pins for a smoother fit.
Just a SWAG it sounds like the bale size sensor on the variable chamber arm.
