"overtemperature at hydraulic power unit".

"Some Hyster trucks had a number cast into the counterweight that related to the capacity of the truck on to which is was fitted. For example a counterweight for a H5.0 XL may have had 5000 or 5 cast into it. The counterweight would need to be removed in order to check if there is a number as it would be up against the truck frame or at least somewhere not visible when standing beside the truck.".

"Not really familiar with this model but, if you are seeing stacked Canbus errors you need to do a diagnostic check on the Can loop. If the can loop opens the truck will not finish it's start up sequence. This will cause a continuous string of can errors. Make sure the termination resistors are good also.".
