BRC 000630.13 – Calibration Failure in Brake Control Unit. John Deere System Advisory.

BRC 000630.13 (BRC 630.13)

Code: 000630.13

Shortcode: 630.13


The error code BRC 000630.13 is related to a significant issue in the Brake Control Unit (BRC), indicating that the system has not been calibrated or has failed to save the calibration settings properly. This fault can lead to inaccuracies in brake operation, potentially affecting the performance and safety of the machinery.


Due to the calibration failure, the function of the brake system is degraded. This might result in less precise braking responses, impacting the overall control and safety of the equipment.


  • Perform System Calibration: Reattempt the calibration process for the BRC. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines closely to ensure the calibration is conducted under the correct conditions and parameters.
  • Inspect Calibration Tools and Environment: Verify that all tools and equipment used in the calibration process are functioning correctly and are properly set up. Ensure the calibration environment is free from factors that could interfere with the process.
  • Check for Software or Firmware Issues: Update the software or firmware of the BRC to the latest version, which might resolve bugs affecting calibration retention.
  • Diagnostic Tests: Run diagnostic tests to confirm that the calibration is held and correctly applied after saving. Look for errors that might indicate why calibration failed initially.
  • Review and Reset System Parameters: If calibration problems persist, review all related system parameters for errors or reset them to factory settings before recalibrating.


Maintaining accurate calibration of the Brake Control Unit is essential for optimal operation and safety. Regular checks and recalibrations as necessary should be part of routine maintenance procedures to ensure that all systems function as intended and to minimize potential risks associated with brake performance.
