Remote Programming Kits, available exclusively through Diesel Laptops, are the perfect solution for fleet managers, shop owners, mechanics and enthusiasts who are in the unique position of needing quick, one-time solutions to atypical situations. For instance, let’s say you are a shop owner that mostly works on Cummins Engines, but a customer with an Isuzu Engine comes in and needs to have their ECM programmed or calibration updated. Traditionally you are faced with two options, neither of which are beneficial to your business. The first is to purchase¬†Isuzu IDSS Diagnostic Software for $1,495 (as well as special cables and adapters) that may or may not ever use again. The other option is to turn the business away.

Today, Diesel Laptops is excited to announce a third option: Remote Programming Kits. These rental kits are a win-win for your business, keeping your costs low and your customers happy and back on the road.

This service works like this:

  1. The Remote Programming Kit is sent to you via 2nd Day Air (You can upgrade to Next Day Air for an additional $100).
  2. Once arrived, you will need to contact our technical support department.
  3. You connect the hardware to the engine ECM directly with the provided bypass cables.
  4. Our factory Certified Technician will remote access the machine and perform the necessary services.
  5. Your package will contain a UPS return label, and we will schedule a UPS pick-up.

A Technician (certified for either CAT, Cummins, International, Isuzu, John Deere or Mack/Volvo) will make sure your ECM is properly backed-up before the work is performed, perform all services requested, and also verify the procedure was completed successfully. You will be provided with before-and-after documentation showing the work performed.

This kit is shipped with software that renders it disabled until our technical support department can access the machine.

Everything you need comes in a Diesel Laptops Tough Case. Just unpack the Tough Case, call our Tech Support and they will take over from there to guide you through your calibration/ECM programming/etc.
