And don't be intimidated by the android functionality. Its different from iPhone but its just to get an android tablet and muck around with it until you recognize the patterns.

I read the post.
And craigslist has nexus 7 tablets for $300 bucks & up! And I don't know what the hell in buying.
I won't buy used electronics from eBay anymore, been burned twice! Only CL local for used electronics.

Anything I find in the $100 range is 3 hours away... Again, I don't know what I'm buying.
Then they throw in Verizon, AT&T, etc... Then 16 gig, 32gig, etc... I can rip movies to run on tablet, but I don't know how much space the converted movie produces.

I can learn how to Root a tablet, but I've gotta take baby steps

And Me & Google are bestest buddies!

...as a matter of fact...

This setup just helped me diagnose the cold start / poor driveability problems I've been experiencing. Low voltage on the Fuel Injector Control Module (FICM). Very common on these 6.0L diesels. The power supply board inside the module is known for failure and low voltage is how you diagnose it.

Dorman makes a replacement board available from Amazon for $93. This Torque Pro app allows me to monitor the FICM voltage as I am travelling down the road and shows the voltage is fluctuating...thus indicating that my fkkng FICM is bad and I need to spend another fkkng $93.

I love torquepro, i use it in my smart-car..

on my latest Bus I have to deal with WinDOZE and run the servicemaxx since its an international and not a ford.. I'll have to run it probably on my surfacepro..

which by the way International GIVES away the servicemaxx software now for those that have "legacy" engines.. which covers all of the engines pretty much on our forum.. the DT-466E, T-444E, and VT-365 are all considered "legacy" and run on the J-1708 protocol.. so those with internationals just need the adapter and the software is free...

your Van cutaway busses will have OBD-II, they were sold in pure van form as consumer vehicles so they had to be OBD-II

commercial trucks were exempt from the law that went into effect way back when so they are on different stuff..

your large bus platforms are usually on J1708 or J1939 (newer).. some of the newest stiuff is on the 50k baud.

the Majority of our busses on here are J-1708 considered "Legacy" engines as far as international..

I know International gives away the legacy ServiceMaxx software with some of the options disabled unless you activate it.. but that only covers Internationals with International Engines.. Namely the 2 relevant to this forum would be the DT-466E and the T-444E..

Cummins (if electronically controlled) will likely be J-1708 however i dont know what software you would use to program or read it out, Torque works for the cummins in consumer pickups as they are OBD-II, but im sure the PID's are different in the commercial ECM..

your AT-545 (if your engine is electronic) is still a mechanical transmission but MAY have an electronic Modulator.. basically the computer operates an electric motor which simulates the shift-throttle-cable.. this was done on the fly-by-wire engines.. because there was no way to actuate a cable since the pedal is just a controller..

once you get into the 2000 Series.. SOME of the PCM software allows you some access to allison, but typically you need a separate cable and software to program the allison transmissions themselves... ie to iunlock 6th gear, control lockup functions, and the like..
