Update to Scan Gauge XGauges for 2014+ 3.0.

I had some anomalies using the XGauges on the PDF that the OP provided and queried Linear Logic about them. After a little to and fro, I learned that the original PDF was a little optimistic.

In part the most recent email from LL stated, "he is confident in the codes we have published in our XGauge section of our website, but that he no longer uses the codes in the PDF you received previously (around last year if I'm not mistaken)." The "he" in the quote is referencing an engineer with LL.

The link https://www.scangauge.com/x-gauge-co...w-3-0l-diesel/ was provided.

If you review you will find that the PDF has a few more entries than the webpage, but the PDF XGauges may be providing inaccurate data. The website also has other Sprinter years and engines as well.
The PDF file had 2 DPF X-Gauges for a start. I changed the filter load one to "DPL" so as to not overlay the DPF one I had just entered.

I had some doubts about some of the "2015+PDF X-gauges" data I was seeing. I downloaded the LL website's list of 2014+ X-Gauges and was planning on reconciling the 2 lists. At first glance, some of them are the same and some are different in one way or another, for the same gauge ID. If the weather warms up a bit (currently 20F and trending lower) or we get away to somewhere warmer, I may try retrofitting some of the website's 2014+ gauge PIDs over the 2015+ ones and see what changes in the retrieved data, if anything. If I discover anything earth shattering, I'll post it up. I do think most of the 2015+ PDF gauges that I use regularly are returning valid data, but for some of them, I have no idea what they're sampling. I'm not a diesel engineer, nor do I play one anywhere, including Broadway.

Posting same reply here as on the DPF thread. Better visibility.

I recoded/reentered/renamed/saved several of my X-Gauges, DPF, EUP, RGN, and DST with the parameters from the 2011 MB Sprinter section of the LL website. I noticed most of them are identical to the 2015+ GChappell/JDeLong parms. Alas, no change, DST still doesn't increment, RGN ON/OFF doesn't ever change, and the EUP is a mildly fluctuating decimal number near 6.0.
I think the DPF (Particulate Filter Load on my SGII) number is around 50 which is a percent, so it may be accurate. I don't know.
Overall, the gauges that worked prior to applying MB recall 2018010004 (ECU reflash) no longer seem to work.
I may try reloading some of the ones I got from the 2015+ pdf file, but most of them are the same as the ones I just refreshed.

How about contacting James DeLong, advise about your ECU reflash and see if he's interested in sending you a data logger (return postage prepaid) so he can evaluate changes?

Before I ponder that suggestion, is there any way to find out what that ECU recall was about? I found a vague reference to "transmission" online, but couldn't identify the vehicle type it referred to.
2018010004 was the recall id.

Not sure, but would guess the reflash was emissions related.

I took the Navion out for a spin on Saturday after doing some Spring prep work for actual travel, and after some mixed idling and city driving close to home, got it out on a freeway. After another hour or so and about 65 miles of travel, I noticed my SGII had detected some abnormally high fWT and TFT temps. The EOT was also higher than what I've seen recently in colder weather. My first thought was they were all higher due to the ambient outside temp being 87F. However, it was then that I noted (and luckily had left display #4 as RGN), that I actually had a regen in progress. I had exited the freeway before I noticed this unexpected event, and let it run to completion at my destination's parking lot. It ended normally, AFAIK.
So, maybe some of these suspect gauges are actually still working, and I just haven't noticed or had any regens for a while. I was so surprised that I didn't remember to check the DST gauge (distance since last regen) but will do so, and see if it reset to something closer to 75 miles or so. Will update with my findings.
