9-Pin to 6-Pin J1708 Bluetooth Adapter

Our 6-Pin standalone adapters are no longer available. Instead you need to order a 9-Pin adapter along with a 9-Pin to 6-Pin converter cable or connector.

Our 9-Pin Adapter plugs into the 9-Pin to 6-Pin connector which in turn connects to the 6-Pin diagnostic port of any Class A Motorhome or Class 3 through 8 heavy duty truck. The Adapter is constructed of industrial grade materials, will withstand abuse, and is weather resistant.

Important Note - The BlueFire App defaults to connecting to a J1939 data bus. You must change this in Settings to 'Connect to a J1708 Data Bus'.

You first need to order one of our Adapters below:

9-Pin J1939/J1708 Bluetooth Android/Windows Adapter (Not for Apple).

9-Pin J1939/J1708 Green Bluetooth Apple/Android/Windows Adapter.

And then, with a separate vendor order, one of the connectors below:

9-Pin to 6-Pin Connector.


Update the Adapter Firmware

Update the firmware on your Adapter. For certain adapters, you can update the firmware yourself with a Windows computer.

Follow the steps below to update your Adapter's firmware:

1. If your Adapter is first generation (elongated mushroom looking cap with a black connector), you need to send the Adapter to us for updating.

2. Check your Adapter's Hardware version by going to the About page. You need to be connected to the Adapter to see the Hardware version. If the Adapter is not compatible with the App, you need to send the Adapter to us for updating.

3. If your Adapter's Hardware version is 2.0 or lower, you need to send the Adapter to us for updating.

4. If your Adapter's Hardware version is 2.1 or higher, you can download and install the Firmware Update Program to a Windows 10 computer. The Firmware Update program is free but you need to check your Windows 10 version first. You must be on 1909 (18363) or lower, or 20H2 (19042) or higher. If your Windows 10 version is 2004 (19041) you need to send the Adapter to us for updating.

Firmware Update Program Download - Instructions will be shown after opening the program.

Note, when installing the Firmware Update Program, if you see the 'Windows protected your PC' alert, you need to click on 'More info' then the 'Run anyway' button.

Note, you only need to order an upgrade if you're sending your Adapter to us for upgrading. Along with sending us your Adapter include a copy of your order. Send your Adapter to the address below and we will update the firmware and ship it back to you via USPS Priority Mail 1-3 Day Small Flat Rate Box.
