Introduction
Hardware and Software Definitions
Hardware
• Computer hardware refers to the physical components
such as the screen, keyboard, case, memory,
motherboard and chips all of which are physical objects
that can be touched.
• The John Deere ECU is like computer hardware.

Software
• Computer software is a set of information and
instructions that directs a computer to perform
specific operations. Computer programming
software is what makes the hardware do
something.
• Hardware may perform many different functions
according to software installed.
• The John Deere Payload is like computer software.
ECU Hardware

ECU Hardware
• The Physical Part
• Has a Part Number
• ECU Level relates to engine components
• Needs adequate power to run all engine actuators
• Needs enough memory to store information
• Does NOT come programmed when new
• It is nearly “Blank” when new
• Needs software to operate
ECU Software

ECU Software (Payload file):


• Information
• Power Curve
• Emissions Level
• Engine equipment
• Fuel System
• Calibrations
• Instructions for ECU operation of engine
• Has a part number
• Can be moved from computer to computer or across network
• Needs to be installed in hardware to run

Lesson 4
Replacing Current ECU when it cannot Communicate

What is Programming when the Current ECU cannot Communicate?


• Only applies when it is NOT POSSIBLE for Service ADVISOR™ to
communicate with ECU
• Perform all communication tests before beginning this procedure
• Must have Replacement ECU or Donor ECU
• DTAC must provide Payload file (Software)
• Loss of communication causes issues:
• Unable to restore information from previous ECU programming
• Unable to transfer current engine operation history

Why perform Replacing ECU when the ECU cannot Communicate?


• Current ECU has lost communication with Service ADVISOR™
• CTM will direct you to replace ECU after performing Communication tests
• Similar to normal Replace ECU procedure with important addition:
• Current ECU information will be re-created in procedure

No Communication with Service ADVISOR™

Service ADVISOR™ will NOT be able to connect


with an ECU that is “Blank” unless performing the
ECU Programming procedures.

Communication to ECU can be attempted


with the GetEcuId.exe program to verify that
communication is possible.

Click “OK” to continue.


GetEcuId.exe program

“GetEcuId.exe” program is
installed with Service
ADVISOR™ and will provide
ECU information when the
ECU is Blank. If shortcut is
not present, find through the
“Start Menu” in Windows.

“GetEcuId.exe” program will


show ECU information. If
“ECU_STATUS” value is shown
as “RUNNING_BOOT_BLOCK”
then the ECU is functional but
Blank.
