    well i am goin to be a smartass to aggravate bobcat ron and say sell it you shouldnt have bought a cat in the first place! hahah but actually it sounds like a wiring problem maybe something with the wiring harness. does the high flow work when you turn it on? i am guess it doesnt but the way it is written kinda sounds like the light just doesnt come on.

    It sounds like maybe a fuse/relay problem if the light wont come on.

    Does your machine also have low flow; if so, check for a sticky micro switch on the low flow circuit.

    I'd start looking through the fuse panel.

    Standard flow is always on the right pilot control, either the roller or 2 buttons.

    Look for a little push button with a small metal arm (often broken off) next to the low flow coupling... it gets depressed when you push the coupling on. YMMV but usually high flow is the default position with that switch needed to activate low flow; that is in addition to selecting the correct position, and flow direction, in the cab. Good luck!
