    I know the nbs trucks have the handy dandy little readout on their digital "screen" that tells you the hours if you want. Is there any such thing on the OBS trucks if you have a scanner?
    I'm just curious to see how many hours my engine has on it and I can't divide my total miles by an estimated speed since my odometer is who knows how far off from being accurate due to larger then stock tires without being corrected.

    No way to know on the OBS Mark. Neither the PCM nor BCM monitor or record engine hrs in any way.

    I'm not 100% sure as I havn't tried it in a long time. But I want to say key "on" but vehicle off, push the trip reset button and hold it for a few seconds I beleive. But again I'm not 100% sure on this, B&B is the guy you want,lol.
