You are on the right track with the service light on. I have removed the handle and plugged the cord in without depressing the switch and after plugging in then depress the switch and while holding the trigger depressed unplug the cord and reinstall the handle. If this doesn't work you might have to take to a Hilti service center. Good luck and let me know.

The safety switch comes on when there is an internal fault, it means that there is a blown component inside.

You cannot reset the safety switch, if the safety switch comes on you need to fix the bad component.

You will need to have the unit taken apart and fixed to reset the safety condition, that is only way to fix it.

Hello,there is a counter behind the trigger it is made to where when you send it back to hilti, all they do is reset it . You can reset it by taking the handle apart and starting the counter over. They do this because they want you to send it in every time the counter goes off. They say it will usually be under normal use 2 years. Please rate this answer thank you.

The only thing that I can think of is maybe the safety switch went out as well. I have a link that will link you to a PDF file for your tool. After you click on the link just press CTRL+F and type in your model number minus the AVR. This will bring you to about the middle of the page and the link is the PDF icon. The last page on the PDF has a lot of information concerning your item.

    If the switch can not be replaced what I would do would be remove it all together. The diagram that is in the site that I posted on my orignal post. The only down fall to this is I am not sure what the safety precautions would entail.

Hitli te 905 avr. light is on. any idea what it


If you have the old type TE905, which is the one with the square type handle at the back, the service light will come on for 2 reasons. Either there is a tight bearing which will increase the amount of current used to work the machine. Or more common the carbon brushes need replacing. To reset the light, simply cure the problem.

If you have the newer type TE905 with the large “D” Type handle at the back. It gets a bit more complicated. The service light will come on for the same reasons as mentioned above, but it will also come on after 200 hours of use. It will continue to work for another 50 hours with the light on, then it will shut down completely. This is to ensure that it gets regular service. Once serviced or repaired, it will require resetting. To do this you with need a Hilti optical interface, a PC, and Hilti ODA Software. This is not available to the general public. If your Hilti is less Than 2 years old, call Hilti. They will pick it up, repair it, and send it back to you in 3 working days FREE OF CHARGE. If it is older than 2 years there will be a charge for the repairs.
I hope this helped you. Please leave feedback

I am the owner of a TE 905 Hilti Jackhammer, Serial No. 234137, I need to purchase replacement brushes and a 14" long flat chisel bit for the Hilti Jackhammer


Did you contact the place you purchased it from? If you still have the paperwork that came with it might have the replacement part #s in one of the flyers. Google the make and model.

Hilti 905 avr starts up slow and uneven speed.


Some of them typically to start up slow. Less wear on the motor. Also make sure you're not using too much drop cord. No more than 100 ft 12/3. May be the brushes if you've had it for awhile. Please rate me

I need wiring schematics for hilti te 905 avr


Wiring schematics can be found by Hilti 1-800 number but they probally will not help you. The 905 is programed to shut down for service every 40 hours plus 10 warning. Then in my case I am stuck with a 200 dollar bill to send the tool from Winnipeg to Montreal for reprograming. Its a joke in my situation and its on me from Hilti, what a good name but what a scam.

Service light on


When the service light comes on in a normal Hilti all you need to do is replace the brushes,....however on a te-706 there are no brushes to replace, you will need to contact Hilti and have them service it.
