Caterpillar 2C5000:

Hello I have a 2c5000.

Does anyone know if diagnozer or cat et is all that can calibrate this truck? Is there some other way or another handset?

Thanks for any input, any comments are welcomed.

I had an e30 on one and replaced the alternator and ecm relays and battery. She ran fine after but the code kept coming back after clearing it every 2 key cycles. I ended up leaving it and low and behold it cleared after an unknown amount of time. I always have a negative look at things in general which makes me draw this conclusion: If I had access to the correct diagnostic software the code would have been able to be cleared the first time.
Also I have some which run slightly rougher than others, the drivers don't notice anything different but i do. No codes fuel system clean fresh tune up parts, I believe there is a calibration for the air fuel ratio which probaly needs to be done but I can't get any answer except cat laptop is required. I don't have any nissan or cat friends and want to know if there is some way i can do this.

Do you have a OBD II code reader. You can hook up under cup holder under dash. But I am pretty sure you have to contact Hewitt and have a tech drop in with lap top to set up. Just a thought. What issues did you have with truck ?
