No. Each device is programmed to a certain truck make. So Volvo device will work on Volvo trucks, DAF device will work only on DAF trucks and so on.. In some cases there will be further variations, for example in Volvo trucks one device will suit FH, FM, FMX models, but a different device would be required for FE, FL models. Same goes for DAF, one device will work on XF and CF models, but a different device would be required for LF rucks..

Being a temporary reset, limp mode will of course come back again, in which case you can reset it again and again, but to get rid of limp mode permanently you will need to fix the actual problem causing limp mode.

Reseting limp mode will instantly return vehicle to full power temporarily, but it will not get rid of limp mode for good nor it will fix the problem. How long will it take for limp mode to come back depends on many factors, such as what active faults/errors are there, how long have they been active, where and how the vehicle is driven and so on.. We guarantee it will always reset limp mode and return your vehicle to full power time and time again, but time periods between the limp mode being reset and it coming back again depends on many factors as described above.

Although fleet reliability depends on many factors, one of the most important factors, to keeping your fleet healthy and on the road, is quality, on-time servicing. Choosing the right garage and the right parts are of paramount importance.

Poor and unfair practices by mechanics and garages worldwide are a big problem.  It is hard to even trust official representatives with repair jobs these days. Further problems are caused by cheap ‘fake’ parts being used for repair jobs. Sometimes such parts are being used without the knowledge of the mechanics doing the job. These parts can be very hard to distinguish from the originals and normally do not set off any alarms when fitting those parts, the problems will come after, and sometimes soon after the repair. It is always wise to ask directly about the parts used in the repair and refuse the services if the garage/mechanic refuses to provide part information. Details to ask for should include brand, country of origin, part/serial number and the part should also be give a thorough visual/physical inspection.
