catmastertech :

That is not a code, it is the indicator for the forward and reverse miles.


 

catmastertech :

What is wrong with the transmission?


 

catmastertech :

What were you doing when the light came on?


 

Customer:
Customer:

It seems to move around ok. I idled it into my shop only and the trans light started flashing


It also says service code.

catmastertech :

Here is more information about the display.


 

catmastertech :
catmastertech :

The digital display windows and provide readouts that show the following items:


 



  • Operational hours (service hours)

     



  • Operational distance

     



  • Engine speed (tachometer)

     



  • Diagnostic codes

     



  • Auto kickdown mode

     



  • Parking brake status

     



  • Selected speed and direction

     




Press the display test switch in order to scroll through several parameters. Hold down the switch for at least one second. The parameters will scroll across the digital display window. When the desired parameter is displayed, release the switch.


 

catmastertech :

The code that appears in the window with the words SERV CODE will be the active code. That is were repairs should begin.

catmastertech :

Here is the list of codes you may find.

catmastertech :

Use the Caterpillar Monitoring System or the Caterpillar Electronic Technician in order to determine the diagnostic codes for the power train ECM. After the diagnostic codes are determined, refer to the corresponding test procedure for more information. Perform the procedure that corresponds to the diagnostic code (CID and FMI). The following table is a list of possible diagnostic codes for the power train ECM.

( 1 ) For the Power Train ECM, the MID is 113. This table pertains only to a diagnostic code with a MID of 113.

 


Note: Table 1 shows only the diagnostic codes for the Power Train Electronic Control System. When the Caterpillar Monitoring System is in service mode, the diagnostic codes for the ECM are shown on the display area of the Caterpillar Monitoring System. The information of the diagnostic code for the ECM is transferred via the CAT data link to the Caterpillar Monitoring System. This diagnostic information is shown when the Caterpillar Monitoring System is in the service mode. The module identifier (MID) tells the service person the ECM that is sending the diagnostic code. The MID for the power train ECM is 113. This Service Manual Module refers to only diagnostic codes with a MID of 113. The other Electronic Control Modules ( Engine ECM, and Caterpillar Monitoring System) have an MID that is listed on the Electrical System Schematic. The service manual for the particular system has the information for troubleshooting the diagnostic codes that do not have a MID of 113. For more information about module identifiers, see System Operation, "Diagnostic Operation". Some of the module identifiers are listed below:


 


Power Train Electronic Control System ... 113
Caterpillar Monitoring System ... 30
Engine Electronic Control ... 36
Implement Electronic Control System ... 082
