Defining diagnostic trouble codes
With how heavy commercial equipment is used on a daily basis, chances are at some point, you will encounter an error code on your odometer. Thankfully, there are facilities like Iron Creek Truck & Trailer that have advanced diagnostic equipment that can be used to pinpoint these issues and have them repaired as soon as possible. Some common diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) can include:
U: User network
0: Generic or Global Fault
3: Ignition systems
6: Onboard computer or auxiliary outputs
7, 8, or 9: Transmission
How to read these diagnostic trouble codes
When you notice any of these codes show up on your odometer, it is essential that you have an understanding of what they mean. As the operator, you want your vehicle to be running as efficiently as possible and visible error codes can put a damper on that. Diagnostic codes are vital to understanding when your vehicle has an issue, long before complete failure. The challenge is that, even if it tells you which system has an issue, it won’t tell you why. When you bring your commercial vehicle into Iron Creek Truck & Trailer, we can use our diagnostic equipment to understand what the code is indicating, find the issue, and repair it as soon as possible.
