No other tool is that easy to use or that quick to bypass limp mode and instantly return your truck to full power. In this article we will explain how does it work and how it can benefit you in limp mode emergency.
Every truck is equipped with a computer known as ECU. This is vehicle’s main computer, which receives signals from all the different components of the truck and controls all systems accordingly. Once a particular fault occurs appropriate signal is sent to the ECU , which in turn triggers limp mode. Problems which cause limp mode are usually associated with vehicle’s emission system, such as SCR faults, NOX faults, DPF faults.., but can also be caused by faulty engine sensors/components/wiring, transmission issues, dysfunctional brakes and clutch, or even low fluid levels…
From our experience, most common limp mode causes are faults/malfunctions within the emissions system. In EURO 5 standard trucks emission system components are NOX sensors and SCR (adblue) system. Should anything within the emission system break down, limp mode will be triggered. Limp mode affect on EURO 5 trucks is relatively mild as power is only restricted by a fraction, however this is not the case with EURO 6 trucks. Once limp mode kicks in EURO 6 trucks will be limited to 20MPH speed, which makes them very difficult to operate. One thing if your lorry is empty, but a completely different story if it is fully loaded. You will struggle even to get it to a safe place, never mind getting it back to your base or to your destination..
