Engine DiagnosticsFault, Status and Measurement Data for Fleet Maintenance
All fleet managers know the cost and stress unscheduled downtime puts on daily operations. Getting ahead of maintenance issues improved revenue generation and customer satisfaction while reducing reduces the rolling cost per mile. The GO System engine diagnostics provides J-Bus data for J-1708 and J-1939 for most class 8 fleet trucking vehicles. Fleet managers can enjoy getting real time odometer and engine light notifications to save hours per month. Data is easily fed into other fleet maintenance systems as well as 3rd party diagnostic monitoring tools.
Advanced Fleet Maintenance
Some GPS systems claim to provide engine diagnostics but in comparison to the GO System they barely compare. The GO System is likely having a scan tool connected to a vehicle at all times. While the competition gives you 4-8 codes or status indicators. The GO System literally provides hundreds depending on the vehicle. It offers the most complete and advanced engine diagnostics on the market. This is why the largest fleets in the United States, Canada and Europe trust their fleet maintenance to the GO System. Fleets with up to 80,000 brown delivery box trucks and yellow rental trucks trust the GO System. However, fleets as small as one use the GO System.
Engine fault codes are an EKG for a vehicle. Vehicles throw hundreds if not thousands of faults codes daily. Being able to manage these codes efficiently is key to knowing when to pull a vehicle and when it can keep rolling. If additional assistance is needed 3rd party partners are available to provide services to make sense of the codes.
The measurement data shows the severity of the faults so mechanics can determine the severity of status data over time. This improves the ability to interpret and respond to severe vehicle issues.
The best results have been that we thought we might have needed to hire and additional full time driver. We had three and were thinking maybe we needed a fourth. Since the installation we have found that we are getting along nicely with 1 full time and two part time drivers. So the units paid for themselves immediately. The maps are nice and the accuracy is very good.Kim R.
