Re: 3196 conversion from EMS to MPD

The engine ECMs have the J1939 circuitry. Only the software needs to be updated to 2273837. Remanufactured EMS units are available thru Cat.

Dave or Mario - an additional question on the original EMS gauge packs.  Is there anyone that rebuilds these gauges?  The LCD display on both main units is shot.

ECMs on early engines did not have the J1939 circuitry. Post the ECM part number or engine serial number. The ECM also needs to have the latest engine software installed for the MPD to work correctly.

Re: 3196 conversion from EMS to MPD

There are no problem to connect MPD on this engines. But many parameters are not available on J1939 from 3196 engine. You will need to customize the MPD programme. For this, you will need ET software and more. For more info, contact your local dealer.

3196 conversion from EMS to MPD

I have a 1999 Sea Ray with 3196's and was looking to upgrade from the standard EMS gauge pack to an MPD.  Is the J1939 protocol on my 1999 compatible with the newer MPD's?  Any watchouts or help with partnumbers would be greatly appreciated.
