Fault code, check engine light

2010 DSDP 43', with an Cummins ISL 400 . Check engine light came on. The fault code that I pulled, read:
MID 128 ENGINE
PID 101 FMI 0
Source Engine SPN 101 FMI 16
I was able to drive to my destination 50 miles away, in
Albuquerque with no problem. Engine sounded and ran fine. I was planning to spend a week here and there is a Cummins shop that opens Monday morning. I cannot find any fault codes I'm any of the manuals I have, does anyone know what these are? Also if anyone has had experience with this shop, or is there a better one. Thanks!

I couldn't be this lucky, could I? After sending the original post I check fluid levels, all were fine, as I went back to the front of the coach I noticed diesel fuel had dripped down the side of the coach from the fuel cap. I very seldom use that cap, almost always using the one on the drivers side. I tightened the cap, started the engine and no check engine light. Again, could I be that lucky?

I think it is possible for you to be "this lucky." Here's what I would do. Since it looks like you have a code reader, you can probably also clear the fault with it. If so, clear the fault and see if it reappears. If it does, you still have a problem that needs to be found. If it doesn't reappear, you have solved your problem.

Good luck.

Cleared fault. Showing nothing now. Wow. I'll keep an eye on that cap from now on. Think I will buy a spare in case the old cap needs to be replaced.

What kind of code reader does an ISL need? My automotive code reader obviously doesnít fit/work.

Thumbs up Diesel Scan Guage

On my 2014 Dutch Star I use a ScanGauge D. I installed the gauge when we picked up the coach and it has worked flawlessly since. In addition to reporting error codes, I use the gauge to provide pertinent data about my engine that I would normally have to roll through on the FL dash.

You have to be able to read J1938 messages and connect to the SAE standard round 9-pin plug found someplace close to the driver.

The dash allows you to read the codes that the coach generates. The problem is.....the codes are Freightliner codes, not Cummins. Once you read the code from the dash, you can call Freightliner and they'll tell you what the code means.

Ken, I believe they are J1939 codes, not J1938. Or, have I missed something? The ScanGauge D will read J1939 codes (and J1708 too). With a discount code (readily available), it can be had for around $140.

You are absolutely correct. It IS J1939. I was typing on my phone and didn't see the mistake. Thank you for the correction.


Tomorrow, I will contact them to see what they have to say about a Comfort Drive.

Didn't mean to be nit-picky, Ken; just wanted to be sure we were all on the same page.

Are you saying that the ScanGauge D may also show info related to Comfort Drive? That would be interesting. I know they say they can customize some special read parameters. I'll be interested in what you find out.

That's not nit-picky at all. If we're going to put information out, it needs to be correct.
