2014 Cummins ISL 8.9L Engine Noise & Code

Recommended Posts

We just did a 200 mile run in our 2014 Thor Mortorcoach and when we shut off the engine we heard a loud piercing whistle sound.  Checking the print out on the steering column, it showed "Check Engine NO J1939 Data". 

Does anyone know what this means??? 

After restarting the engine 2 times, the high-pitched sound stopped, but the error code still shows on the screen. 

Anyone know???? 

Thanks!

You should have a green Cummins booklet.  The codes are towards the back.  If you can't find the code, call Cummins or Thor Tech dept.  Did you check your coolant?

I wish.  We didn't get any booklets or manuals with our Coach and have been trying to get everything we can as we encounter issues.  Very long story about a difficult dealership for another time.  But we did call Cummins and they said take the unit into the nearest Cummins dealer. UGH.  We'll try Thor next.  Just thought someone might know; and we'll check the coolant too.  Thought we had, but will do again.  Diesels are new to me so this one issue will teach us alot.  Thanks for the assiatnce.

"Check Engine NO J1939 Data"

The J1939 data bus supplies all the communications between the different modules installed on the chassis. Loose, corroded or damaged connection will corrupt the system data information. 

Are all the instrument panel gauges and transmission panel  working normally? 

Might want to have Cummins run a test on the data link.

Rich.
