This program is available through participating John Deere dealers who partner with customers to develop a parts inventory strategy that makes the most sense for a customer’s machines. There are several different storage options and financing is available through John Deere Financial.

Dealer Supported Remote Tools

Remote tools such as Expert Alerts, Service ADVISOR Remote, and Remote Display Access allow dealer technicians and farmers to identify and address issues before they impact operations.

Expert Alerts

Expert Alerts is a proactive monitoring system that notifies dealers (with a customer’s permission) of potential machine issues. This allows technicians to diagnose issues remotely before they become a problem.

Service ADVISOR Remote

With Service ADVISOR Remote, a customer’s dealer can remotely analyze Diagnostic Trouble Codes in near real time to isolate potential issues with a customer’s machine. Once received by a dealer, DTC’s are analyzed to identify the potential cause and initiate a solution, which can include:

  • Customer Contact
  • Remote Diagnostic/Service
  • Possible Service Visit

Customer Service ADVISOR

Customer Service ADVISOR is a digital database of operator, diagnostic and technical manuals for John Deere products. This subscription allows a customer to connect machines with an Electronic Data Link (EDL) to clear and refresh codes, take diagnostic readings, and perform limited calibrations. Customer Service ADVISOR is available for purchase through or through 4Rivers Equipment.
