    Unloaded my dozer and lights started flashing and buzzer going off. When placed in gear it will track but only very slow. Any ideas?

    Scroll your monitor system using the switch with the check mark icon on the RH side of your photo and find the Diagnostic Codes.
    The "SERV CODE" icon on the RH side indicates that you have one or more active Codes. Need to know what they are before going further.
    Also a Serial Number would go a long way.

    Well that’s half the story.
    Now we just need the information regarding what Active Diagnostic Codes you have.......

    Even if you are getting Cat out to it, it would help them a lot if you could tell them what Diagnostic Codes are active on the machine.
    If the Codes you have are related to a sensor or sensors the field tech could actually bring new ones with him instead of having to go back (at your expense) to get them. Just a thought.

    This should help you find and list them for the dispatcher before he sends out someone to be dispatched.



    Good Luck!
