Common main function menu includes the following options:

Read ECU: This function is to read the ECU version information, which is the equivalent of “System Identification” or “System Information” in some electronic control systems.

This will allow you to read ECU related software and hardware versions, models and production date of diesel engine, part number, etc.

Read DTCs: read the trouble codes that are stored in the ECU.

Clear DTCs: clear current and historical trouble codes memory in ECU. The trouble codes can not be erased without eliminating the fault that the code relates to. TIP: Save or print the currently stored fault codes before clearing them to provide help in the case of an intermittent fault.

Select Read Fault Codes to read the trouble codes stored in the ECU. The screen will show the trouble codes and their definition, shown below:

Tip: In the process of diagnosis, if the device shows “System is OK” or “No Trouble Code”, it indicates that the ECU has not detected a fault in any of the circuits that it monitors. If there is a fault which is not being recorded it may be that the fault is with a part of the system not under the control of ECU, such as a mechanical system fault. It is also possible that the signal of a system sensor may be incorrect but still within the ECUs stored limits, this can be verified in Live Data.

Clear DTCs

Return to the previous step, select Clear Fault Codes to clear the current and historical trouble codes memory in ECU. Performing this function will clear all the current and historical trouble codes. Please ensure that the trouble codes have been recorded before clearing, shown below:
