Good morning!!!!

No joy with my OBD2 code reader. Did a good job showing running info, but not reading any codes.

Not should what this really means and choosing any provided no info. Proprietary?

I did exercise it to the point of repetitive stalling which I suspect is temp related rather than wire rubbing on frame.
 
   / Good morning!!!! #192,122  
Good (Thursday) morning. Overnight Low of 1.6C and it's presently 12.1C, partly cloudy & calm.

Received a return call from the Liming contractor last evening... so, at least he hasn't forgotten about us and we're 'in the queue'. At least he gave me a cost for the lime (A$65 per ton), which should be delivered early next week. He wasn't sure on the day that he'd perform the liming, saying Wed-Fri. Fortunately I don't have anything really planned so I can be available to guide him to the other properties to be done & open/shut gates for him.

I've got that meeting with my Minister @ 1330, then I may take a trip out to Pyengana for some cheese. I've also got an evening meeting from 1700-2100 (supper included).

That's about it, take care all.

David, glad you found the port! Yes, they don't place it in an area easy to get to.

RS, I understand your philosophy on the soaker vs. drip. Drip can be a pain with hard water. I found some drippers that can be taken apart and cleaned.
Soaker hoses might be your best bet.
I bought a drip system years ago when we had a dry summer, never installed it, and never really needed to since. maybe now I have some time I'll dig it out of the barn and give it a try. Maybe I said...
only takes a few minutes in the evening to spray the cantalopes, tomatoes, peppers and beans. we always wait till dusk to water.

When I worked on some car stuff a few years ago, there are standard ODB codes for certain common things (like emission stuff for shops to fix), but most of the important stuff being communicated on the CAN bus to the ECU is proprietary, and you need a system from the manufacturer to read them. But I'm not an expert.
here's some reading on the subject:

Some times the CAN bus signals can get distorted by dirt or connector issues. Not sure what the tractor ECU is connected to but maybe cleaning connectors could help? Just an idea.

john deere CAN bus issue: This deals with resistor used to terminate the CAN bus, normally two 120 ohm in parallel, or 60 ohm on each (Low and High) if one goes bad, CAN bus can't communicate as signal echo's back down the BUS distorting the signal.

think i'd start by just cleaning all connectors to the ECU, you never know....

another good discussion.

Thanks, Dennis
I don't know how indepth the CAN network is on a tractor, is it just 1 primary ECU, and CAN just to interface via OBD. THe DEERE video implies a network, which means multiple ECU's, and the possibility for attachments to also get connected via CAN, such as sprayers etc..
On Cars there are many ECU's like for brakes, signals, throttle, engine control, emission, etc.... that all communicate with each other, at least to the master.

Near as I can tell, the LS has a single ECU with multiple sensors
Sadly, can’t find a lot of info.
My friend, John (pilot friend) recommended Perplexity as a nice AI query app. I was impressed. Then I clicked on the footnotes and found it was referencing my TBN posts.

Good evening all. 71ºF for the start, partly cloudy, light breeze. Light wind, sky clouded up, and high temp was 88ºF, HI 92ºF. Made coffee to start day, Men's Meeting, putter, change oil in SUV and put new sticker in windshield. Had wrong filter so had to make extra trip to replace it. After finish oil change, went back to town for lunch and grocery shopping. Nap after putting groceries away. Mexican for dinner, then got truck and trailer new tags ordered on line. Cleaning ladies put off 1 day by their request, so can do better prep job :) Pic of BAK start line (CO/KS border).

   / Good morning!!!! #192,130  
Coffee has finished brewing. 68° with cloudy skies this morning. Heading to 87° with afternoon thunderstorms. Got enough rain to last night to make everything wet. Had good time celebrating my BD yesterday. Grocery shopping this morning. Then when grass dries will mow it.
Play time.
