Detroit Diesel Launches Advanced Diagnostics Features for DDDL

REDFORD, Mich. Detroit Diesel Corporation has launched advanced diagnostics features for its Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link (DDDL) tool. DDDL is an innovative diagnostic tool available for heavy duty engines, and is compatible with Detroit Diesel’s complete line of engines.

DDDL’s enhanced features provide service technicians a truly interactive tool by not just reading diagnostic data, but interpreting it and automatically determining next steps. A sophisticated troubleshooting tree provides step-by-step diagnostics to help technicians quickly and easily address issues.

Additional features include encrypted videos and animation clips that further aid in diagnoses. On-screen graphics also serve as a teaching tool for technicians.

We collaborated with Daimler’s electronic engineers to create the most comprehensive, innovative tool,” said Drew Plant, manager, Support System Development, Daimler Truck North America. “DDDL’s new technology makes it fast and convenient to diagnose and resolve many problems – getting you back on the road faster.”

Technicians can use DDDL’s advanced features to report back to Detroit Diesel’s support center, which helps Detroit Diesel engineers monitor and evaluate repairs being made, enhancing continuous engine and technology improvements.

Engines today are far more complex to meet the needs of the market and regulatory requirements, so the development of advanced diagnostics helps technicians diagnose the systems,” said David Siler, director of marketing, Detroit Diesel Corporation. “Our never-ending goal is to provide premium support and technology to all of our customers. By giving our engineers and service network the right tools to get the job done, Detroit Diesel can continue to produce the most durable and reliable engines on the road today and the best performing network in the industry.”

With more than 800 locations in North America, Detroit Diesel’s factory trained technicians are never far away. Its sophisticated parts and service network keeps locations stocked with genuine Detroit Diesel parts, Genuine Maintenance products, as well as reliabilt® remanufactured parts. All this so you can demand support from the best performing network.
