Modern or newish ex military vehicles


Recommended Posts

Anyone know whether the automotive i.e. not stuff required to support military equipment (radios?) complies with the OBDII standard.  I understood the ones being released were a lower grade militarised version using a lot of civilian components.  I know generic OBDII readers can only go so far but would this work?

Little tale of woe about two vehicles not Man that happened about 8 years ago. Two Turkish Iveco artics pulled into a services near to where i live for fuel and overnight stop. Their cards where not accepted for fuel so they paid cash for overnight stop. They then parked up up and got a container and sucked 25 litres out of one and put it into the other.Next morning one started up and drove away. the other would not start. local Iveco agent was called out to diagnose fault.about 6 oclock  in evening we were called out to tow artic  to Iveco agent 4 miles away. Prepared to tow prop of suspended jumped up parking warden said he had over stayed his welcome £120 before he could leave. driver paid Towed 4 miles to iveco agent computer plugged in all sorted 20 minutes . prop shaft replaced  ready for off. Problem one that had less fuel in than night before compter reckoned it was leaking derv and such a fire Hazard. Why no fix on site lap top only works inline of site of a transponder cemented in to wall at Iveco agent total bill for whole cock up will have been around £1300
