Why do I need a cool down timer?
This timer is engineered to keep your engine running after you turn your vehicle off. This blocks turbocharger bearing failure that can happen when the engine gets shut down too fast. The typical turbocharger can revolve in excess of 100,000 rpm under load and the spinning will continue when the engine is turned off. The turbocharger is kept cool and lubricated via engine oil. When you turn your engine off, the supply of oil stops. The internal bearings will scavenge to use what small amount of oil is left and then start to heat. This basically boils the oil which can lead to bearing failure far before any damage should occur. A cool down timer will slow down the spinning to a lower RPM thus cutting down on the chance of engine damage.
How does a turbo timer work?
The CDT2 module uses the signal from the thermocouple that is calculating the exhaust gas temperature. When your engine is turned off and the exhaust temps are higher than the shutdown setting, the CDT2 module will keep power flowing to the ECM/PCM and this keeps your engine running until temps drop down below the indicated setting.
The module included in this kit has some included safety features that are a but unlike the competition. If for some reason the engine temps do not drop below the shutdown setting, after five minutes of the engine being shut off, the CDT2 will spontaneously shut the engine down. Likewise, if the engine starts a REGEN cycle making the EGT’s rise, your engine will shut off. The CDT2 module is also engineered to gauge your trucks hydraulic brakes when connected to the brake pedal terminal.
NOTE: This unit is designed to work in conjunction with BD’s own X-Monitor digital gauge package, connecting between the control module and display.
