It's a 2005 Freightliner Chassis.


My motorhome is a 2004 on a 2003 Chassis. According to info I found Freightliner introduced the MMDC in late 2004. But I definitely have one that looks a lot like he one in the manual I downloaded, except mine is more squared off than the one they show. But the same code worked and a lot of the same menus are there, just not odometer. At least not that I saw. Now that I have your new info I’ll go back tomorrow and take a look at that one screen again.

If you do have an MMDC the menu item you're ultimately looking for is called "ECU vs IP" under "Service/Diagnostics/(PW=8127)/Sender"

If instead of the MMDC your coach has the earlier VDU I would recommend contacting FCCC (Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp) Customer Service (1-800-385-4357) to find out if that info is accessible to you on your coach.

The code worked and got me into diagnostics, but I dont have a menu option for odometer anyplace. I found an owners manual online for the Freightliner MMDC but mine doesn’t have all the screens as the one in the owners manual. The literature said Freightliner came out with it in late 2004. May Motorhome is a 2004 and the LCD readout on mine looks different than the one in the manual. I don’t know if I possibly got an earlier version or what is going on with it. Per the manual in the regular menus you are supposed to be able to read the odometer and the tripometer. I only have the tripometer in the regular menus. Guess I’ll try calling the company that made it unless you have any different ideas?


I just checked mine, first Service, then diagnosics, then sender, then scroll down a bunch.


Okay, I finally found it. It took a while and I’m not sure how I actually found it, but hopefully I can do it again. I had to switch the Service Menu on the first screen to RAW is what I think it said, then it gave me a different display of menus. I found one that said ODO Diff. The top number shows 38469.9 mi. Then under that is 5262.0 mi. That bottom number matches the current reading on the odometer. So now the only question is do I add 38469,9 to the bottom number to get total miles, or is 38469 the total miles? Based on what I know of past miles at the time the odometer reset, I was guessing I had about 45,000 miles on it. So adding them together gets me close to my estimate.

Glad you found it!

As I understand it, your true mileage is 38469.9 - you don't add the two...

If that’s true that is a lot lower than I thought. But we’ve only taken a few long trips in the last 10 years.

Some Freightliner odo's will indicate both miles and kilometers. You press and hold the trip reset switch when it is in total distance mode. A reading of 100K miles would switch to a reading of 160K kilometers.
