Nexiq eTechnician update supports Detroit Diesel engines

Oct. 12, 2023
The software update also includes coverage for all Detroit Diesel GHG21-supported engines

Nexiq Technologies, a provider of information management solutions, diagnostic products, and telematics solutions, released a new version of its eTechnician software. The version, eTechnician 2.9, enables the PC-based solution to provide bi-directional diagnostic support for Detroit Diesel engines through model year 2024. The update also supports Detroit Diesel engines compliant with the 2021 greenhouse gas emissions standards, including the DD13 and DD15.

eTechnician was first released in 2015 as eTechnician HD. Later, Nexiq combined its heavy-duty, light-duty, and medium-duty software offerings and dropped the HD in the name to create eTechnician. Connecting the two offerings allows technicians to perform diagnostics on transmissions, brakes, engines, trailers, body controllers, and more on both heavy and light- and medium-duty trucks from a PC platform with the capabilities of what was formerly known as eTechnician HDS. The combo also allowed technicians to receive diagnostic capability for brakes, engines, and transmissions for light- and medium-duty vehicles with what was formerly known as eTechnician LMT—all on one platform.

“In addition to providing technicians with the comprehensive diagnostic support they’ve come to expect with eTechnician software, our latest update features support for changeable parameters, including the ability to adjust maximum speed and idle shutdown settings on the newest engines,” said David Shock, Nexiq Technologies product manager. “It’s also important to note that once repairs have been completed, eTechnician 2.9 provides technicians with a test to clear aftertreatment derate.”
