Hi Allyn. Welcome to JA. I am Buddy, and i will try and help you out.

 

You should have a shutdown override/diagnostic request switch.

  • Turn vehicle ignition switch ON.
  • Depress and hold the diagnostic request switch.
  • Count the flashes. There will be a short pause between each flash and a longer pause between each code. The code should be a 2 digit code.
  •  

  • Active codes are the codes which are currently keeping the "Check or Stop Engine" light on. Active codes are flashed via the Stop Engine Light (SEL).
  • Inactive codes are all the codes previously logged in the ECM. These codes can be cleared by using the DDR. Inactive codes are flashed via the Check Engine Light (CEL)
  •  

    Let me know what codes you come up with, and also which light they were blinked on.

     

    Thanks

    I just called the driver these are the codes Check Engine 54,73,38,63 Engine Protect are 55 & 35 then cycle started over again
    Expert:  Buddy replied 4 years ago.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I would double check those flash codes. 55 and 35 are the active faults.

     

    Flash Code 35 p 100/3 indicates that the engine Oil Pressure Sensor/Engine Oil Pressure Sensor (OPS/EOP Sensor),input to the ECM/ECU has exceeded 95% (normally > 4.75 volts) of the sensor supply voltage.? This is more then likely a faulty oil pressure sensor or wiring to sensor issue.

     

    The SAE J1587 equivalent code for Flash Code 55 is s 231/12, ECM/ECU fault and s 216/14, missing other ECM/ECU. It also indicates DDEC ECM/ECU has lost its connection with other ECM/ECU devices or indicates a loss or shorted J1939 data link. If code s 216/14 is logged with p 86/14 then Smart Cruise has a fault. If code s 216/14 is logged with p 84/12 there is an incorrectly programmed or shorted J1939 data link.?This can be caused by several things and normally can be a pain to troubleshoot.

     

     

    I hope this helps you out. If you have anymore questions, or info just ask.


    Thanks
