Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.
Unfortunately pulling flash codes with a smart wheel is not possible. Sorry. I wish that was not the case.
Also, Cat stopped using the flash code system on its engines after 2006. When the new emissions engine came out, the only way to pull codes is with a service tool like Cat ET software. So even if you did not have a smart wheel, and you had classic cruise switches, you still would not be able to pull the codes. I am sorry. Believe me. I wish this was not the case as it would make my customers life much easier.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.

Thanks Cat Man! That figures Cat figured out to many people could diagnose issues without hooking up so their way of ensuring to get our money, take the feature away so we have to see a dealership and pay the $100 hook up charge!Thanks again for the fast reply!
