Exhaust Brake Switch

Exhaust brakes quit working. The exhaust brakes on/off switch does not illuminate like it did. I can not find a fuse to replace along the driver's side panel. Is there another fuse box or does anyone have a wiring diagram?

It is a 1999 National Tradewinds 7370 powered by CAT 3126B Turbo on Freightliner XC Chassis with an Allison Transmission

Dumb question but did one of the wires come out of the back of the switch?

Exhaust Brake Switch

On my 1998 Tradewinds, the fuse for the Exhaust Brake is not in the fuse panel, but it's an inline fuse 10A. It's located under the switch.
Good luck.
Jim

All wires(3) are connected to the switch. There is no in line fuse. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the exhaust brake, Jacobs Extarder on a freightliner chassis?

My exhaust switch light quit but the braking function is still good. Not sure if it has a replaceable bulb in it or not.
