2006 Pete 379 with an MXS C15. Truck is throwing a flash for 95, as best I can tell. The reason I specify "as best I can tell" is because it flashes 9, 5, and then 1? I'm not sure if the 1 is a subcode like some old cars used to do, or if it's just signifying the end of the list. Definitely threw me off a bit. I know what to do if it is a 95, I just wanna make sure that bonus flash isn't important.
My second question is more general though. What are yall using for scanners? I mostly work on cars, so I've got a fancy schmancy Snap-On tablet that does half my job for me, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what is worth buying for trucks. I know Cummins and Cat and everyone's got their own proprietary software #### - do I need to buy CAT ET or whatever the hell to troubleshoot this truck properly? Are there "generic" J1939 scanners that will do what I need them to do? Ideally, I'd be able to pull the long-form codes and subcodes, and live data streams would be real handy but I don't know if that's gonna cost me an extra arm and leg.
