ENGINE HOURS FROM ECM

Engine hours can now be retrieved from the ECM of heavy duty vehicles with the most recent firmware update.

The new method uses a combination of engine hours calculated from ignition on & off events and from TERT (the engine hours from the vehicle’s ECM) to improve accuracy.

This new approach eliminates the need to set engine hours at the time of installation. In addition, this new method continuously checks the engine hours from both methods and does a better job of discarding incorrect or unsynchronized values.
