Before planting, ensure all planter diagnostic information is ok:

  • Select setup, and then diagnose.
  • Everything should be green on the diagnose page.
  • Select color legend to view an explanation of what each color indicates.

Modules may be updating during initial connection. Once updates are complete, all modules should be green. If the modules are not green, confirm that the number of rows and planter setup is correct. Still experiencing issues? Refer to the Dealer Service Manual.
