My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

The codes you provided are just for the modules that have coded. There is more info needed for those codes such as a MID/SID number and a FMI number that follows those codes.

Engine is address of 128. That is what it means. Same as the ICU aka Cluster has address of 140 (when you have this code, it can mean there is a fault in the CAN BUS network or the cluster itself is shorting out causing all the other codes to appear since it can't read the codes), ABS address of 136, VECU with a address of 144. These are referred to as MID codes or Manufacturer Information Database code. It is the standard used for all vehicles to name the module that has the code.

Does your codes follow with more info? They can look like this for example ENG 128 MID 022 FMI 7. Without the other parts of the codes, they can be over 3,000 different isues that are triggered on the truck.
