How about an "Access Freightliner" tutorial?


Recommended Posts

I got my access user name and password. I think I'm able to log in because it says "welcome" to me. I can't figure out much more after that. I can't see where to enter my VIN and/or engine serial number? Pretty much life as normal for me with a computer. Am I missing something? (Curt, I'm looking to you for guidance)

Bob,

 

Your truck will love you for it! I promise!

 

Let's get you started!

 

Once you open "Access" you will be asked to sign in with your user name and password.

 

After that you will see the main page, from here you have options on what you want to see.

 

To enter Parts Pro, use the latest version (below) the first. Enter your VIN# here.

 

Now you can enter any module you wish and just drill down to a specific component.

 

If you enter the Vendor section on the main page it will take you directly to the out sourced part/components website.

 

Here you can see their breakdown/schematics.

 

Let me know if you need more assistance.

Glad you're in! Now we have to get the rest of our fellow Freightliner owners signed up and using this "free" service!

 

As I stated before this is an invaluable resource that we have at our beckon call!

My first goal is to figure out how to disable the ecm (or whatever Caterpillar or Freightliner call it) so that I can crank over the engine without it starting. My Caterpillar manual says if the engine is not run for a week I should "disable the fuel pump" and crank it over for several seconds. This will circulate oil and get the engine oiled up without putting the pressure on from combustion. I would love to be able to do that. I do that on my Vette for the first start in the spring after it's been sitting all winter. I just can't figure out how to do it on the truck. I tried pulling several fuses and relays and none of them stopped it from firing up when I cranked it over. Somebody told me there is a power wire directly from the battery bank to the ecm that I need to interrupt. Can't seem to locate that on my own. Do you think AccessFreightliner of DTNA might be able to help me with that one?

Update. I find a list of a bunch of wiring diagrams but when I click on any of them it opens a new tab and says " You do not have the CGM Viewer installed on your system. You may install it by clicking this link: Install CGM Viewer." I clicked on and went through a bunch of steps to install the CGM viewer. I think I installed it. But I still get that message when trying to look at a wiring diagram. Dang, I wish I could just drive a few miles over to visit and learn like Mr. Cob did.

I'm using Google Chrome browser. I just tried using Internet Explorer. When I tried opening a schematic a box popped up asking me if I wanted to run something (sorry can't remember what but I suspect it was that viewer thingy) so I clicked "run" or "allow" or similar. It appears to open a schematic that way.
