Your issue is no elevator speed. Are you running the feeder house while doing the vibration cal? Some combines won’t show elevator speed unless it’s running too. Is so with no elevator speed the jd shaft speed monitor should be going off too. If not the cable that ties into the sensor on the clean grain auger under the combine on the left end of it needs to be checked.maybe unhooked? Or damaged? On the fuse blowing, did you pull the moisture auger out and see if it clear? Plug the power cable directly to the motor and bypass all the other stuff by doing that and see if the fuse blows then. If so it’s jammed or the motor is probably bad
The above is correct. You absolutely must have clean grain elevator speed. There should be a cable that tee's in between the original Deere wiring harness and the Deere sensor. The sensor is on the left end of the clean grain elevator. With the combine running at full speed the clean grain elevator speed would show around 410 RPM on my 9500 with an Insight. The Ag Leader system needs to see at least 250 Clean grain elevator RPM to produce results. Since you are not showing elevator speed, this must be addressed. It could be the sensor, the cable or the module. I would check the cable first since the sensor must be working properly or the combine would complain.
Ag Leader's side mount moisture sensor assembly contains a motor and an auger that should start/stop based on a proximity switch within the assembly. The idea is that the chamber will get filled so the sensor is immersed in grain. Once the chamber becomes full, the proximity switch is tripped which should cause the motor to run for a bit so that "new" grain will be allowed into the chamber. With decent corn, the motor and auger should run almost constantly. With soybeans (less flow), it should start/stop. I spliced a pair of wires on the wires leading to that motor and ran them into the cab on my 9500 where they were attached to a light. This allows me to "watch" the action of the auger motor. I forget the fuse size but 5 AMP seems small.
