Understanding the intricacies of diesel diagnostics is more than just reading trouble codes; it's a language of its own. Firewood Heavy Truck & Equipment Repairs in Edmonton, AB, is fluent in this language and equipped with industry-leading tools to translate it, making your truck repairs a breeze.
No, heavy-duty trucks typically do not use the OBD2 (On-Board Diagnostics II) system. They use their own diagnostic systems, such as J1939, which are specifically designed for larger vehicles like heavy-duty trucks. These systems are more robust and capable of handling the unique requirements of these vehicles, which often have different engines and components than those found in typical passenger vehicles covered by OBD2.
Understanding what trouble codes mean can be a puzzle — don’t let it stress you out. We use Mitchell 1's RepairConnect, one of the best heavy truck diagnostic tools on the market, to help you bid farewell to your truck’s confusing trouble codes.
