SOURCE: The ramp will not go up or down. It's states low

The ramp system has a battery monitoring system. If the battery voltage falls below 11 Vdc when the ramp movement is initiated or the battery voltage falls below 10 Vdc after ramp movement has been initiated, ramp movement will be stopped and gives that error message. The ramp will not be enabled until such time as the battery voltage exceeds the above limits. The battery voltage must be raised to be to correct this problem either by charging or replacing the battery.

How do I solve Error 42?


Precor Error Code 42 Error Code: 42 Manufacturer: Precor
Model: All Models
Error Description: Error 42, Lift Position Value Out of Range. Error 42 is displayed when the lift position reported by the lift position potentiometer is found to be outside its set limits.
If an Error 42 has occurred, it is important to know the physical position of the lift when the error occurred. It is possible the lift is physically out of range or jammed. In this case, the Error 42 is a secondary symptom and the issue should be approached as an Error 40. Possible Reason:
  1. Bad or intermittent connection in the lift motor controller.
  2. The lift motor requires calibration.
  3. The lift motor potentiometer is bad.
  4. The lower PCA to upper PCA cable is bad.
  5. The lower PCA is bad.
  6. The upper PCA is bad.
Recommended Action:
  1. Intermittent connections can be difficult to locate. If the Error 42 condition is intermittent, a connection issue is probably the cause. This is definitely true if the Error 42 occurred while the lift was within its normal physical range. Inspect the lift potentiometer connector and repair connection if necessary. If the intermittent connection cannot be found or corrected, replace the lift motor. A lift calibration number of 0 or 255 indicates an open or shorted potentiometer connection. This means the problem could be anywhere between the lift motor and the upper PCA. Typically it can be identified and tracked using an ohmmeter.
  2. Using the appropriate service manual for the unit being tested, refer to the lift calibration procedure. If the information in the service manual doesn't match the lift position/physical lift position of the unit, recalibrate the lift motor. [Something caused the lift motor to be out of calibration. Investigate for cause and correct. Simply recalibrating the lift motor will not solve the problem.]
  3. If the lift calibration number is not 0 or 255 and does not change when the lift motor turns, replace the lift motor.
  4. Check continuity of the interconnect cable or swap with a known good interconnect cable to verify if cable is bad.
  5. Swap the lower PCA with a known good lower PCA to verify if the lower PCA is bad.
  6. Swap the upper PCA with a know good upper PCA to verify if the upper PCA is bad.

Precor 5.17i lift wobbly


INcline it all the way up and look underneath the ramp. Check where the ramp attaches to the main frame. If there are cracks in the bottom of the ramp, you need a new ramp, especially if you have a steel ramp as opposed to alumunum.
