Dianostic tool options, reading, clearing, Regen, data stream.

I have looked around and order 2 different levels of diagnostic tools for my 2019 Ventana Freightliner Cummins ISL9 Allison combo.

I am on Strike 2.

First attempt was the Nexlink NL102 which came with decent reviews.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Would not even read codes never mind any of the other features advertised.

Sent that back.

Second attempt was at Dieisel Laptops https://www.diesellaptops.com/collec...ool-with-regen

After getting it registered and downoading all the updates, It would connect, sees Calibration info, Mileage etc, It can read codes, in the Engine, Trans, dash, abs, but will not clear them, nor does the data stream work in any of the modules.

Sent that back.

Wondering if any one has had any luck with any other devices on 2019 and newer Freightliner chassis.

If not I have to take the dive on this one. https://www.diesellaptops.com/produc...tic-laptop-kit

Well after several trials and tribulations I finally have a working resolution.

I bought this package only to have it not work as well as the first 2 units listed in the Opening thread.

https://www.diesellaptops.com/produc...tic-laptop-kit

So this was strike 3 for me but only strike 2 for Diesel laptops.

The Laptop and adapter are both junk,the adapter would not stay connected and the laptop touch pad was so bad and not amount of adjustment made a difference.

Diesel Laptops were great they took back both and gave me a refund for the laptop and sent me this adapter.

https://www.diesellaptops.com/produc...nd-obdii-cable

Then their IT professionals transferred all the software and licensing to my military grade Dell laptop.

I finally have a working solution with Cummins Insite Lite, the NexIQ adapter and my personal laptop.

It was exhausting exercise but I felt it important enough to not give up until I had a solution to have access to all the modules in my coach.

I even have access to the comfort Steer which I needed to reset center of steering.

Hopefully, what I went through will help someone else make an educated choice.

I recommend Diesel laptops as a great source for Diesel diagnostics.

Ted.

Have you tested all of the functions?

It would not even read codes on mine.
