Default ddec 1

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this but just purchased a 1988 WB 40 and would like to purchase a scanner for future issues. It had a TPS code and old owner replaced foot feed and all is well now.

Default 88 WB40 XXV

I am looking to purchase a code reader/scan tool for my DDEC-1.
Tried to purchase a new one but discontinued.
Purchased a 88 WB40 in southern CA. and drove home to MN, fabulous trial run.

Congrats on your purchase and sorry I can't help you with a reader/scanner tool. Don't forget to change your signature so when you post a question, we will know what year and model bus you have to be able to help you better. Have fun.

Thumbs up UPDATE

I took a 5 hour run in the coach yesterday and am happy to report no CEI and no shutdowns. I am hoping the original CEI and subsequent shutdown(s) are fixed.

For those who have not read this entire thread, several trips ago, I started getting CEI and then engine shut down with multiple conflicting codes, none of which were actually true. I finally replaced the engine low coolant sensor with a new (Amazon) generic sensor. All was well for one trip and then problem reappeared. I replaced the sensor again with a genuine Delco sensor and all problems have been resolved. Lesson learned again: Replace critical components with OEM ones.

Hopefully I am completely done with this and can now move on to other maintenance.

TOM

True story.
I have been chasing a intermittent engine miss in my chevy van.
I have found that any sensor has to be a GM product.
The other brand stuff (dorman etc) just does not do the job well.
OEM parts only.

Right! As I am sorry to say, I had to learn that lesson again. I will admit to being influenced by the outrageous prices on OEM but, as my Daddy used to say, "You dance to the music, you gotta pay to the piper." I DO enjoy the Wanderlodge Dance........... most of the time..........
