so everyone that has accuguide in a combine what did you do to make it work? my dealership has not had one in a combine before. and it won't turn on. what do you have to do to test it out ? does it need a head ? thanks in advance
Mine did the same thing. If it is like mine, when you hold down the orange autosteer button on the console it won't activate. The version of software that comes out of the factory isn't the newest version, it needs to be updated. Your dealer should be able to hook up his laptop and download newest version of softwares for different components. I think the accu-guide version was 16.4 but I can't remember exactly. My version out of the factory was 16.1. Once we downloaded the newest version it came right on. You have to hold the orange button down for four seconds to activate accu-guide and then a disclaimer pops up and you have to hit accept. If you make it that far you should be good to go! Let me know if you need the version numbers and I can look them up in my combine. You can check your version numbers on your console, I wish I could remember where it shows them at but I can't remember. Look around on the afs 600 you will find the version numbers. Hope this helps.
You also need to turn the steering wheel a half-turn or so in either direction before it will enable. This is to make sure the system is seeing the signal from the override sensor at the base of the steering column. If it doesn't know this sensor is working, it won't let you enable the system, because you might not be able to manually disengage if you needed to.
you also have to be moving so that it can find a direction. after you hold the orange button down we have a 9120 at our shop and I could not get it to work until i talked to our case rep and also that the software that was in the combined from the factory is newer than we have now.
