I didn't think so but I was hoping there was an intermediate cable I have one that I use for Komatsu trucks that goes in between the obd connector and the I guess its a duetz style plug and the code are the comparable?
I only have these 2 gasoline machines so it's really not worth dumping a ton of cash on a scanner thanks for the response BTW

thanks for the reply.
I have had some luck with older programs running them in a virtual machine but the 16bit (early, like windows 3.0) and 8bit (run in DOS) programs have made me NUTS with wasting my limited time.

edward,

generally older software 'might' run on windows 10 , no guarantee because of OS compatibility.
if you run windows 64 bit there is alot less chance it will work as most software is designed to run on 32 bit systems.

But in my experience with getting older software to run on windows 10 you can just change the programs compatibility mode to run as an older version of windows by using the program troubleshooter that's built in the OS and change it to the last version of windows it was known to run on.

Not that you are using the black market software but keep in mind that most OEM's will not cover warranty if they find out black market software has been used. Also if something were to happen, someone getting injured, and they find out that you are not using factory authorized software you will most likely be held liable.
From what I have seen posted on here it is a shot in the dark if you even get the program that you have ordered unless you get it from the OEM.

the Hyster service tool (software) is on the black market so to speak but you still need the cables......readily available

most of the "Proprietary" software is available off script for all or certainly most manufacturers equipment

bring back Carbs and venturi's.....and standard distributors with contacts :) :)

the one constant i've noticed with impco is every time they update their versions of diagnostic software they at some point change their canbus adapter and also their passcode for the "Tier" versions. The problem is they don't send out bulletins telling dealers this right away.
So with that said you better know what Version of firmware is on your truck before you hook up or you won't get anywhere. It simply will not connect.
I ran into this problem back when Cat had Tier 3 out and was in transition to the new Tier 4 trucks, it seems some information was not publically available and even some dealers were not updated unless they asked for it. The canbus adapter and software had to be obtained from Impco directly and after a couple of attempts and 2 different versions of the Tier 3 software we finally got onboard (connected) and could run diagnostics on the late Tier 3 truck i was working on. That version of software we had to use was not the same one you could get off their site.

And to add here... make sure the truck your working on actually uses the Impco software for diagnostics in the first place. If it does not have the spectrum engine or fuel system on the truck your wasting your time and most likely need the correct diagnostic software that Hyster provides for that truck.

Like what has been mentioned previously in alot of cases the handheld OBDII scanner might connect if the harness on the truck has that connector on it, cat had that option on their trucks and i'm sure other mfg's did too. I don't know for sure about the hyster trucks though.

But if you have the right info you most certainly can diagnose a truck without the laptop and even make the repairs, it's just in some cases you may need the laptop to reset codes for those that get hardset and can only be removed by the laptop program.
But then again disconnecting the battery for a period of time generally clears any codes stored in the ECU.

MUCH less expensive to get the local Hyster dealer to reset the password, and have them share the -maintenance-/-service- password with the owner of the truck, and then access everything through the dash.

Fact of the week

The earliest known production of steel is seen in pieces of ironware excavated from an archaeological site in Anatolia and are nearly 4,000 years old, dating from 1800 BC. The main reasons for the popularity of steel are the relatively low cost of making, forming, and processing it, the abundance of its two raw materials (iron ore and scrap), and its unparalleled range of mechanical properties.
