Beginning in 2016, Thomas Built Saf-T-Liner C2 buses have come equipped with an Ecco LED roof-mounted strobe light with a built-in power pack. The Ecco LED strobe light is much easier to troubleshoot than previous strobe lights. It has both a power and ground wire, making it very easy to test.
In this service bulletin, we’ll show you how to test an Ecco LED strobe light using a standard 9-volt battery and a Carolina Thomas LED strobe light connector (P/N: Ecco-Test). Click here for a printable copy of the service bulletin.

In early 2017, Thomas Built Buses announced a revolutionary new feature for diesel engines: Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Temperature Stabilization, also known as the “Stay Warm” feature. This new feature optimizes the regenerative parameters of diesel engines, increasing active regeneration and decreasing aftertreatment DPF maintenance issues. In this service bulletin, we’ll show you how to activate Cummins diesel engine Stay Warm feature using Cummins INSITE software.
This simple parameter settings change will allow the engine to continue its active regeneration versus regen interruption when the bus slows below 25 mph under the standard parameter settings.
