Fault Codes of Volvo Power Generator TAD734GE Model

Jul. 05, 2018

Fault Codes

WARNING! Read the safety instructions for handling and service in chapter “Safety information” before starting work.

NOTE: Reading the fault codes below, such as Code 2.1, PID /SPN 97, where 2.1 is a flash code indicated by a flashing diagnostic lamp. PID / SPN 97 is read with the VODIA diagnostic tool. When using DCU or DU, the fault code is displayed as plain text.

For a further explanation, see “Reading fault codes”.

NOTE: Please refer to “Wiring schedule CIU and DCU” for references to the sockets in the electrical connectors on the engine control unit.
