Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Is the panel and accessories powering up?

Check all fuses for power on both sides with the key on. Let me know if there are any warning indicators or alarms as this is a single ECM machine and everything runs through the ECM on this machine. Do you have Cat ET access or the optional digital display panel to access fault codes?

Check for ignition and ECM power as if power is lost to the IGN circuit or ECM the machine wont run. Test your battery and connections as well. We can follow up as needed. Let me know if you need more help.

We have a "!" With the yellow triangle around it and the sound alarm beeping. Battery is charged and on the charger while working on it. We don't have a information panel on the top right side it is missing.We don't know where we can but the software to pull codes. If we could buy it we would.

There are some vendors on the web and on e bay, Etc that sell the communication adapters and the Cat ET software. Some you can get already installed on a laptop.
