Unplugging The Speed Sensor Solves Wheel Lockup ProblemsKenneth Hall, Jamestown, N. Dak.: "The front wheels on my Bobcat Toolcat locked up so the machine wouldn't move. I spent more than $1,000 at the shop to replace the disk brakes, but that didn't solve the problem. Then I went online and found that someone in Ohio with the same problem had discovered the speed sensor was faulty. He solved the problem by simply unplugging the speed sensor. So that's what I did, and now everything works. It would have cost $300 to replace the sensor.
