where to start? scan for codes

Recommended Posts

so recently i just started working for a company whose mechanic let everything pretty much just run its course with hardly any maintenance.

we have a 2002 mack freedom mv222, vin: VG6AF02A32B250151

last week when i went to drive this truck, it has a terrible time trying to idle, hesitates when you try to accelerate, barely reaches 55mph, shut off at stop lights, etc... it had a few lights flashing up on the dashboard, i saw, vecu, a picture of a wrench, see dealer, alternator. i also noticed that it has original fuel filters.

so my question is how to i go about scanning for codes, this is my first time working on a mack. is there just an obd port, or do i just turn the truck on and everything should flash up? thanks!

Its hard to find anyone with real experience on Freedoms. We have one guy who has some experience with the electronics and he calls the 1 guy at Mack who can help. Its funny you mentioned the fuel filters not being changed because I have seen that before. Its difficult getting parts and help with those. Good Luck.

Talk the company into buying Hino's.

Ditch the Freedom.
