ECM Team Services
Today’s diesel trucks have a “Black Box” (Electronic Control
Module) ECM, to control the fuel and monitor electronic sensors
on these engines. However, each engine company provides their
own design and software. The information from the on-road
ECM can provide some of the following stored data: Vehicle
Speed, Hard Braking & Quick Stop Events, Vehicle Top Speed
Setting, use of Cruise Control, Vehicle Monthly Activity's
as well as other pertinent stored data.
In 2000 the ECM Team group was established. In November 2001, the ECM Team
completed a DaimlerChrysler Powersystems's Diesel Company
training and certification class to extract and analyze the
information stored in the Detroit Diesel ECMs. At that time
we were the first and only dealer authorized group listed
with the dealers. This training, in addition to having the
most current special software, allows us to download the stored
information without destroying or erasing the ECM data. Experience,
training and the proper software are critical to collecting
all data and ECM history.
In July 2003, the members of the ECM Team completed a Mercedes Benz, MBE Data Extraction
training and certification class at the DaimlerChrysler Powersystems's
Detroit Diesel Training Center.
In 2004 our capabilities expanded to other engine manufactures and we are able to provide
the same services for Caterpillar, Mack, and other engine
ECM’s unique proprietary data.
With EDR (Event Data Recorder) now becoming more popular (approximately 40000 trucks) we
are able to provide the same type of service to Vorad with
the removal of the unit and extraction of the data supporting
the same services as with the ECM data.
With our individual locations,
additional staff, large airports and demographic areas, we
are prepared for immediate response (within 4 hours) for travel
to any incident site in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Worldwide services are also available.
The ECM Team is dedicated
to providing professional ECM or EDR extractions with report
analysis, deposition and trial support on all type commercial
vehicles or construction equipment. We can provide the same
services for automobile accidents.
Please Contact Us for additional information and rates for ECM analysis and reports.
"Penske is pleased with your services in performing the downloads on our customers leased vehicles. In some cases we are not aware of the situation until it is too late. I have advised my staff to refer you to our internal and external claims people." - Rick Duffy, Penske Truck Leasing
