ENP-733 – De-rate and Hours to Empty Calibrations – Blue iQ Cummins B6.7L CNG

NHTSA ID Number: 10174934

Manufacturer Communication Number: ENP-733

Summary

The Agility Fuel Solutions (Agility®) service team identified two fuel system ECU (electronic control unit) calibration issues in Blue iQ CNG (compressed natural gas) fuel systems for the Cummins® 6.7L engine. Issue 1: Program incompatibility causes throttle response to drop to zero when an attempt is made to operate in economy (Eco) mode. Issue 2: “Liters to Empty” Smart Gauge function is not programmed; at fuel levels less than 5-10%, zero throttle response results. Agility® is coding a new ECU calibration to remedy these conditions which will be distributed through the Cummins INSITE customer online portal.

Blue iQ Cummins B6.7L CNG
De-rate and Hours to Empty Calibrations

ENP-733

April 27, 2020

 

1. Introduction

The Agility Fuel Solutions (Agility®) service team has identified two fuel system ECU (electronic control unit) calibration issues in Blue iQ CNG (compressed natural gas) fuel systems for the Cummins® 6.7L engine as follows:

Issue 1: Program incompatibility causes throttle response to drop to zero when an attempt is made to operate in economy (Eco) mode.

Issue 2: “Liters to Empty” Smart Gauge function is not programmed; at fuel levels less than 5-10%, zero throttle response results.

Agility® is coding a new ECU calibration to remedy these conditions which will be distributed through the Cummins INSITE customer online portal.

Effective immediately and continuing until affected units receive the new calibration, Agility® recommends the following precautionary measures:

  • Do not operate the vehicle in Eco mode, and
  • Do not rely on the Liters to Empty Smart Gauge function; always keep the vehicle well-fueled to avoid an unexpected empty condition.

 

2. Affected Units

Two Autocar (VINs 232122 and 232123) and 52 TICO yard tractors equipped with Agility® Blue iQ CNG fuel systems and Cummins® 6.7L engines.

 

3. Tools Required

  1. Cummins® INLINE7™ or NEXIQ Technologies® USB-Link 2™
  2. Cummins® Calterm™

 

4. Diagnostic Symptoms and Preventative Measures

Issue 1: Zero throttle response when Eco Mode is enabled. Figure 1

 

Figure 1.

Smart Gauge green LED (1) illuminated and “Eco Mode Enabled” message (2) displayed.

             

ACTION: Press and hold the right Smart Gauge function button until the display changes to

“Eco Mode Disabled” and the red LED illuminates to disable Eco Mode. Figure 2

 

Figure 2.

Smart Gauge right function button (3), red LED (1) illuminated, and “Eco Mode Disabled” message (2) displayed. The Smart Gauge should display “Eco Mode Disabled” during unit operation until the ECU calibration update is released. Figure 2

Issue 2: Zero throttle response at low fuel levels less than 5-10%.  

 

Figure 3.

Smart Gauge red LED (1) illuminated and “Derate Active” message (2) displayed.

ACTION: Unit must refuel to disable the derate condition automatically.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION: Temporarily disable derate by holding down the Override button; this allows units to be operated on CNG pony tanks.

 

5. Corrective Action / Procedure

Issues 1 and 2: Install new Agility® ECU calibration, software version TBA via Cummins® INSITE using the following procedure:

Step 1: Using either a NEXIQ® USB-Link 2 or Cummins® INLINE7 tool, verify OBD-II connection is correctly selected. Figure 4.

 

NEXIQ tool programming screens (not shown throughout this procedure) are similar.

Step 2: Click “Connect to ECM” from the left tab menu. Figure 4
