Scan tool works through smartphone

by Today's Trucking

A new smartphone-enabled scan tool from Dorman Products and Diesel Laptops delivers diagnostic information on North American trucks. No proprietary hardware is needed.

The device works in conjunction with Diesel Decoder’s mobile app and reads true system diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), including manufacturer-specific fault codes.

The decoder also connects directly to the Diesel Laptops’ repair library to identify required repairs, including fault code repair information, wiring diagrams, component locators, and remove and replace instructions.

The Diesel Decoder also detects and stores truck health reports, and provides driver productivity and trip reports, including fuel economy and hard braking events.
