Scan Gauge 2 Won't Work.. Darn.

My coach is on a Freightliner Chassis so it looks like I need to get the Scan Gauge "D"......

Is there a plug in under the dash for it? I know there is one all the way in the back of the coach but I don't find one under the dash???

Thanks LeeB

If you are trying to urgently read a check engine code, you can get the code from the freightliner LBCU dash unit and call FL for interpretation. Instructions are in the FL Chassis Owners Guide.
You won't be sorry you get the ScanGauge-D, mine detected a turbo activation code just a month before the warranty expired. Bottom line was I had the Turbo replaced due to info from the ScanGauge that was NOT captured by the LBCU as they were momentary codes on starting the engine and these are not captured or stored in the ECM until they become "solid". Good luck,

I installed a Scan-D on our 2004 Winnebago Journey. The plug is hard to find - under the dash to left of steering column on our coach. Grey in color. Keep looking!

Not looking for any codes at this time whew....

The Coach is VERY new to us, I have no idea what LBCU means. I'll have to do a search to see if I can find out what it means...

Glad to hear Scan Gauge saved you..

Same here. 2003 Journey it was way back there just to the left of the steering column and mounted to a bracket which made it difficult to reach and connect to. I just took the 2 screws out of the bracket and let it dangle down. There was plenty of slack in the cable. Move the seat way back and get a bright light! Took me 3 hunting trips to find mine. Good luck.

The best price I found was from Advanced Auto after going to their website and looking for coupons. The d version was about $120 a year ago.

If yours is like mine there is a small foot rest held by a screw (or two) and it will be easier to dig around looking for that connection if you remove that foot rest. At least it made it easier for me.

I had to remove the dash cover on mine to find anything. Not enough room to get between seat and steering column. Even that is tight gettin my arm down in the mess if wiring.

Not on mine. It is screwed to the floor to the rear (drivers seat) side of the foot rest. The screw was well hidden by the carpet.
