Save time and money while eliminating technician travel time by utilizing remote two-way data flow from the dealership to the jobsite and from the jobsite to dealership. 


Improper machine operation:

  • Dealer investigates high tire temperature alert using JDLink™ Dashboard and discovers the front right and middle right tires both have low pressure and high temperature.
  • Dealer confirms via remote diagnostics connection that overall machine health is fine and instructs customer to correct tire pressure.
  • Result: Dealer detects improper machine condition with the potential to cause premature tire wear and expensive downtime — all without a technician trip to the jobsite. 
    • Technician visit to jobsite eliminated.
    • Premature tire wear avoided.
    • Downtime minimized.


Remote Software Upgrade:

  • Dealer receives high engine oil soot load alert and learns that machine is actively working by checking utilization in the JDLink Dashboard.
  • Dealer views engine-misfire reading via remote diagnostics connection and matches symptoms with a service bulletin identifying an update. Dealer deploys an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) payload via remote programming to update software and resolve problem.
  • Result: Dealer prevents downtime by correctly diagnosing and repairing the problem remotely.
    • Expensive downtime prevented
    • Problem repaired remotely


Right Part for the Jobsite:

  • Dealer receives an alert that indicates the motor grader has derated due to an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) fault code.
  • Dealer collects EGR flow-sensor reading via remote diagnostics confirming that the sensor has failed. Technician arrives with a new sensor in hand for onsite repair.
  • Result: Dealer diagnoses problem remotely and sends a technician to the jobsite with the correct part for quick repair, avoiding an initial trip for diagnosing the problem.
    • Issue repaired quickly
    • Problem diagnosed remotely
