Here the steps;
1. Click on F4-Connect (left-above side), or just need to push F4 button through keyboard.
2. Choose “Transmission Type”, click on “SmartConnect” check box, then click on “Data Bus Viewer” tab.
-“Collecting J1939 data (4th Gen only)”: sometimes a technician may need to know J1939 data related to the transmission. Selecting this option, will display pertinent J1939 data on the ALLISON DOC Data Monitor view. If a session is recorded, this data will also be saved to the same file.

If you are troubleshooting a specific problem related to one of these groups, this is a faster way of requesting the extra data instead of individually picking data items in the “Software Configuration” dialog.
3. Choose “Connect to the data bus with new connection”, then click OK.
4. Choose your “Adapter”, for example: I used NEXIQ USB Link J1939, then click OK.
