One of the most common actions Jaltest users perform on their Caterpillar wheel loaders is transmission calibrations. Thanks to the Jaltest Off-Highway Diagnostics scan kit from Triad Diagnostic Solutions, you can work on all makes and all models. The same software that allows you to perform these essential calibrations is also the software that enables you to execute diagnostics, bidirectional actions, and check OEM technical information. To give you a better understanding of how to navigate through a calibration, we’re going to walk you through the repair for a Caterpillar 950 Wheel Loader transmission calibration.
From the beginning, the Jaltest software can help you navigate to the right ECU. Step-by-step navigation menus allow you to find the exact construction equipment you’re about to work on, in this case a Caterpillar 950 Series.
Jaltest provides exact images of where you can find the port you need to hook up your diagnostic system. If you don’t have the proper off-highway cable , you can connect with the Jaltest multi-pin connector cable set included in your kit or contact Triad for the correct cable.
Once you’ve connected your PC to the diagnostic port of the equipment, you’ll view the Jaltest Diagnostics Menu. From here, you can check and clear fault codes, monitor live data, and perform bidirectional actions, maintenance functions and other diagnostic testing procedures. By clicking on Calibration, the software will take you to the next step in the calibration process.
From the Calibration menu, your off-highway diagnostics kit will display your transmission calibration option as well as other systems that may need your attention. This information is crucial, and each repair should be made to ensure your wheel loader continues to operate as expected.
As the Jaltest platform guides you through the calibration process, it will also prompt you for an expert code that opens up the advanced functions of Jaltest and allows calibration and other testing procedures to the vehicle. Here, you’ll also find a list of safety instructions that Jaltest recommends before you begin transmission calibration. Once your tech has carefully read and understands the safety precautions, you’re ready to calibrate.
From here, you or your tech will want to make sure that INITIAL CONDITIONS are set and that your wheel loader is in the correct condition for the transmission calibration. To give Jaltest permission to start, all you have to do is select the CALIBRATE option in the right-hand panel.
Step 7 & 8
The beauty of Jaltest software and diagnostic tools is that it will automatically conduct an entire transmission calibration for any of your construction vehicles. The only thing you must do is wait, and the software will notify you once the process is complete.
