Please note: that adapter cables are required for 6-pin J1708 and 16-pin  J1939 diagnostic ports. Also note that Y-splitter cables may be required on vehicles (such as some Freightliner Cascadias and others) that have the diagnostic port adjacent to the clutch pedal or in some other inconvenient location. See below for our selection of cables.
