EEC61 AND CHS71
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

OK, EEC61 is the module. There should be a code beyond that starting with SPN and a number and FMI and a number.

The CHS71 is a chassis code.

This could be a connection issue from the cleaning. Look at the SAM Chassis module under the hood, drivers side below the slave cylinder for the clutch. Make sure it did not get soaked with water.

Is it a good ideal to let dry out ?There are no further codes after EEC61THERE ARE NO ADDITIONAL
CODES AFTER THE EEC61
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

OK, then yes, give it some time and see if it clears itself.

Keep me updated.

THESE 2 CODES WERE THERE BEFORE THE ENGINE STEAM CLEAN. IT IS THE BLINKING DEF LIGHT WITH STOP AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT THAT IS OF CONCERN.
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

They are not codes. They are module identifiers. The codes would be in a format of SPN and FMI.

Roy

There is nothing in dash with SPN or FMI
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

OK, is the check engine light on?

Roy

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Why is DEF light blinking when DEF tank is full. Also RED Stop engine light is on along with AMBER check engine light.
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

That means it is in the last stage of derate from an issue with the emission system.

Can you put it into a regen?

Roy

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it will regen.
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

OK, let it regen and see if it completes it and the light goes out.
