faulty brake switch code on the navistar will also shut down the high idle feature, as well as a vehicle speed sensor code (breaks cruise and high idle)

Thanks for all the replies!

Iím in southeastern Virginia. (Portsmouth)

My ABS light is on and it displays associated codes indicating the ABS is not working. I havenít gotten the idle up function to work.. so I might have to fix the brakes....

Anyone know how to get cruise control on my 99 Thomas w/3126? Do those scanners come with any cat software?

A lot of the mainstream scanners do not come with engine specific software. They come with generic software which will basically read and clear codes. Each specific software for specific engines, brake systems, and/or transmissions can be added for a charge. Our shop has the International program, Wabco ABS, Allison transmission, and Paccar software since these are what we work on most.

my Navistar software supports some CATs although looks like just the newer stuff, not sure if it would detect your engine or not, it might.. some navistar class 8 stuff got CAT engines later on so im guessing thats why they are in there..

I've thought about buying one of those chinese nexiq clones that come with a bunch of "trial" software, but now that i've got a mechanical cummins it fell off my list. I'd more or less expect those toggles to be available for each brand but that's just a guess.

Example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEXIQ2-USB-...mPEw:rk:3:pf:0

Probably all old versions but shouldn't matter much for skoolie folks. More concerned about virus checking them, I'd run in a virtual machine for sure.

Yea, IDK what that is... Stuff like that is why computer controlled stuff scares me.
