Perkins 1206E-E66TA Engine Operation with Active Diagnostic Codes
If a diagnostic lamp illuminates during normal engine operation, the system has identified a situation that is not within the specification. Use electronic service tools to check the active diagnostic codes.
The active diagnostic code should be investigated. The cause of the problem should be corrected as soon as possible. If the cause of the active diagnostic code is repaired and there is only one active diagnostic code, the diagnostic lamp will turn off.
Operation of the engine and performance of the engine can be limited as a result of the active diagnostic code that is generated. Acceleration rates may be significantly slower. Refer to the Troubleshooting Guide for more information on the relationship between these active diagnostic codes and engine performance.
Note: If the customer has selected “DERATE” and if there is a low oil pressure condition, the Electronic Control Module (ECM) will limit the engine power until the problem is corrected. If the oil pressure is within the normal range, the engine may be operated at the rated speed and load. However, maintenance should be performed as soon as possible.
Perkins 1206E-E66TA Engine Operation with Intermittent Diagnostic Codes
If a diagnostic lamp illuminates during normal engine operation and the diagnostic lamp shuts off, an intermittent fault may have occurred. If a fault has occurred, the fault will be logged into the memory of the Electronic Control Module (ECM).
In most cases, it is not necessary to stop the engine because of an intermittent code. However, the operator should retrieve the logged fault codes and the operator should reference the appropriate information in order to identify the nature of the event. The operator should log any observation that could have caused the lamp to light.
This information can be useful to help troubleshoot the situation. The information can also be used for future reference. For more information on diagnostic codes, refer to the Troubleshooting Guide for this engine.
Perkins 1206E-E66TA System Configuration Parameters
System configuration parameters affect the emissions of the engine or the power of the engine. System configuration parameters are programmed at the factory. Normally, system configuration parameters would never require changing through the life of the engine. System configuration parameters must be reprogrammed if an ECM is replaced. System configuration parameters do not require reprogrammed if the ECM software is changed. Factory passwords are required to change these parameters.
