Self-Repair Made Easy

We know uptime is critically important to you. It's also important to us and our dealers.

AFBF and John Deere Memorandum of Understanding

Expanding Access to Self-Repair Resources

We are proud to announce that we’re enhancing the capabilities of our existing diagnostic tools and expanding their availability with the following actions.

The diagnostic service tool, Customer Service ADVISOR, is now available from John Deere directly to customers and independent repair shops through The tool will continue to be available through John Deere dealerships.

In 2023, we will roll out an enhanced customer solution that includes a mobile device interface, and the ability to download secure software updates directly to embedded controllers on select John Deere equipment with 4G connections.

Today's Modern Tractors

Our equipment doesn't fit in your pocket like a cell phone or come with a handful of components. Our combines can weigh more than 15 tons and are manufactured with over 18,500 parts.

The same software that drives improved productivity, efficiency, and sustainability, also controls important safety and environmental features. That's why we don't support customers modifying embedded software in our equipment. Doing so creates risks related to safe operation of the machine, emissions compliance, engine performance, data security, warranty validation, and resale value.

Safety First

Your well-being and that of our employees and technicians is of utmost importance. Modifying the software of heavy machinery could override safety controls and put people at risk. Operating and maintaining our equipment to the base engineering standards helps keep everyone safe.
