Kenworth enables online TruckTech+ subscription management

Kenworth introduced a new way for fleets and truck operators to manage their Kenworth TruckTech+ Remote Diagnostics subscriptions online through the PACCAR Solutions web portal. By logging into PACCAR Solutions, customers can renew their Kenworth TruckTech+ subscriptions, manage payment options and monitor subscription expiration dates for all their trucks. They also can manage subscriptions for trucks that will be added to their fleet in the future. Renewals may be made for individual units or an entire fleet. An automatic renewal option is available for added convenience.

Kenworth TruckTech+ is standard on Class 8 Kenworth trucks equipped with PACCAR MX engines and Cummins diesel and natural gas engines. The system is optional when purchasing new Kenworth T180, T280, T380 and T480 medium-duty conventional models equipped with a PACCAR PX-7 or PACCAR PX-9 engine. The T280, T380 and T480 also offer the remote diagnostics system when specified with a Cummins Westport L9N natural gas engine.

Kenworth TruckTech+ notifications provide guidance to the driver and fleet manager on how to proceed. Notifications include options to keep driving and address the alert code during the next service interval, go immediately to a dealer for service, or pull over to prevent possible damage.

If the customer needs to take the truck in for service, the system maps out the locations of the three closest repair facilities. The data is sent to the secure PACCAR Solutions portal where the fleet manager can review the truck’s location, status, identified issue and recommended solution. When the truck arrives, the dealer’s service team can move quickly to remedy the problem. There are currently more than 130,000 trucks in the U.S. and Canada enrolled in Kenworth TruckTech+.
