Section 6.1
Diagnostic Codes

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the Maintenance Council (TMC) of the American Trucking Association have developed a standard data interchange format referred to as J1587. This format defines a standard data list, controller names and numbers, parameter names and numbers, and diagnostic fault code formats and numbers.‪

Subsystem IDentifiers (SID) are numbers and names used to identify field-repairable or replaceable subsystems with a failure (i.e. RAM, auxiliary. output, timing actuator, oil filter, etc.).‪

Failure Mode Identifiers (FMI) describes the type of failure detected in the subsystem or part identified by the SID (i.e. shorted low, shorted high, etc.).‪

Flash Code provides a two-digit number to advise the operator of the general severity of the fault.‪
