How to clear the codes on Kubota tractors?

Clearing codes on Kubota tractors can be done using a diagnostic tool that is compatible with your tractor’s system or through the tractor’s control panel. The process may vary slightly depending on the make and model of your tractor and the diagnostic tool you are using.

  1. Connect the diagnostic tool to the tractor’s diagnostic connector and retrieve the codes as described in the previous answers.
  2. Once you have resolved the issue causing the error code, you can clear the codes using the diagnostic tool. The process for clearing codes will vary depending on the diagnostic tool you are using, so consult the tool’s manual for specific instructions.
