"Resume" on steering wheel

I, after five years, recently learned about the resume feature on the steering wheel to increase the RPMs to 900 when idling. I found this particularly helpful when airing up the bags when leaving for the day. Recently, the resume function stopped working and the idle won't increase. The resume works fine when cruising, but it won't increase the RPM when idling. Is there a lockout somewhere? Is it just broke?

Have you tried getting it to hold at higher than 900 rpms. I have to get mine up to around 1100 to 1200.
Oh, and I usually just run the rpms up and then press SET.

You might try resetting the Vansco System by turning off the chassis switch in the battery compartment for a minute or so.

I heard a teen asking if that button caused a copy of your resume to be printed some place.

Have you tried using the "Set" button?

My "Resume" & "Set" buttons have both triggerred a fast idle. In fact, the last time I was getting work performed at RM Cummins they programmed the ECM for the Resume & Set buttons to trigger different fast idle speeds. I believe the Resume causes 850 RPM while the Set button causes 1000 RPM.

I'm sure you're aware that the tranny needs to be in Neutral, the Park Brake needs to be set, and your foot can NOT toouch the brake pedal. Other than that the fast idle should work as programmed by in the ECM.

Unless yours is like mine and I've never got it to work, per my previous thread on high idle settings. Have exhausted about every avenue on it and the only thing that works is a piece of lumber between the steering wheel and the foot throttle.

Turned ut to be one of thosre "DUH" things. I pressed the ON/OFF button, then the resume worked. Must have been coincidence that I never had to do that before.

On mine, the speed control comes on by default at startup. Perhaps you pressed the on/off button before you tried the resume button.

I have to turn my on/off cruise button on for mine to work. 08HR Endeavor 400isl.
The green light on the dash comes on and then the set and resume buttons change the idle. My manual does not say to turn the cruise on but small changes happen and the manuals did not get addendums in the end of Monacos reign.
