It's simple. This is the area to enter a Technician's Code. There are a
few levels of diagnostics. The most common, the one that this group has used
in the past, is Level 1 Diagnostics. This level enables many common
attributes to be changed and manipulated. It's also an area with testing diagnostics
to help troubleshoot problems however it is not given out so easily for
several reasons. If a few settings are changed in some areas, it could allow the
mower to be "unpredictable" and may cause damage to itself and its
surroundings. It is always best to enter this area with a technician's help, however
if something does occur wrong without a tech's help you can always call us for
help. Just be very careful if you do go inside and be careful at the
settings you change. The 2nd Level and others are Developer Codes in which is not
used at any time by the public.

The option in the menus of the RL800 can't help but to spark some
curiosity... the one for service functions. I've rebuilt mine twice (or,
at least, taken completely apart and put back together) and it'd be nice
to be able to test some motors and sensors while I work.
I'd also like to be able to use the mower as a metal detector to find
where a broken wire is, but I honestly don't think that's possible...
but I might as well ask anyway. If the diagnostics and service mode can
be used to do this, all the better...
So if anyone knows how I can get this "password" (as it says "Password
Req"), or what that mode even *does*, I'd really love it.
