Included with the INLINE 6 driver is a tool that allows you to reprogram (reflash) the INLINE 6 adapter with the latest firmware. The firmware that was shipped with your INLINE 6 adapter is included with this installation and can be found in C:\Program Files\ Common Files\Cummins\Inline6. The firmware file has a “.cal” extension and the name should include the version number. This file can be used to restore your adapter to its original condition, if necessary.
As new software is released, it will be made available on the INLINE web site. This software is typically bundled with a new driver. If you are not running the latest version, download the latest version, and run the associated installation. This will place the updated calibration file in the correct place on the PC.

Click on the entry “Inline 6 Reflash Tool”. When the INLINE 6 Reflash Tool dialog appears, you have to make a couple of selections before proceeding. Select the communications port you will be using (e.g., USB, COM1). After selecting a communications port, click the “Browse…” button. When the “Open” dialog box appears, the files available for reflashing should be displayed. Click on the “.cal” file you want to use, click “Open”. If the file is valid, the “Status” window will display the message: “Ready to reflash Inline 6…”. If the file is not valid, the “Status” window will display the message: “Invalid File Format, Please select another file”. You cannot reprogram the adapter until a valid file has been selected.
Once you’ve selected a valid file, make sure your Heavy Duty Truck Scan Tool INLINE 6 is connected to the communications port selected above and the adapter is powered up. Click “Reflash” to begin the reprogramming process. Do not interrupt this process. It should take approximately 2 minutes to completely reprogram the adapter. When the reprogramming process is complete, another dialog box will appear, confirming that the reflash was successful. Click “OK” to exit this dialog box. At this point, you can connect another INLINE 6 adapter and click the Reflash button again to reprogram the next adapter.
