Customer Question
I have a 2014 Caterpillar...
I have a 2014 Caterpillar 259D Skid Steer. Recently I went to use it and the battery was dead. I went ahead and just changed the battery and now I'm getting errors such as "Left Joystick Forward/Reverse Position Sensor Voltage Above Normal. And the same error for Left/Right movement and it will not move.

What those errors usually mean for calibration is that the joysticks and everything need to be recalibrated using Caterpillar ET diagnostic software. In some cases the software will need to be updated. However if you have some fault codes that indicate the joystick itself is faulty and will not recalibrate then the joystick will need to be repaired or replaced young than recalibrated.
