Tech/Engineering / Tractors
German term or phrase: Fahrschalter
Tractor with electronic controls, operated with a "fahrhebel" (joystick) - but also with normal controls in case of failure of electronic system. This is an example from the manual troubleshooting section:
"Fahrschalter Signal "Fahrpedal Betrieb" fehlerhaft (Fahrpedalbetrieb, d.h. Fahrschalter wird verrastet)".
It may be the driving mode selector switch.
