Pre Programming 05 Dodge Cummins Diesel
« on: June 18, 2015, 10:18:44 PM »
Looking to purchase an Ultra gauge. Why is the pre-programming required to be selected? Will it still read the 05 Cummins? Either way I would like to help with making that a pre programmed option if possible. 

Since to Cummins isn't listed, which pre-programming option should I chose?

Pre-programming is just for convenience.  Despite pre-programming all UG MX are identical and can be reprogrammed for any vehicle.  If the Mgauge feature is not used, then programming is a don't care and the gauge can be installed in any vehicle.

See detailed information http://www.ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/support/Ultragauge_MX_1.3.pdf

If your vehicle uses 9141, then the manufacturer gauges are likely not accessible via the standard OBDII and the EM Plus is likely a better choice.
If your vehicle uses CAN, then the Tacoma option or any of the CAN options is a good starting point.

Thank you. I used the Gauge Availability Estimator. 05 Dodge uses the  J1850 VPM protocol according to that. So I should be goto go!. Just waiting for it to get here now!  :)
