On our 2005 Tropi-Cal our headlights seem to go on at odd times and then off with activation of the parking brake or some such. We will try to study this problem today and see just what is happening, but to find the fault will require someone with more knowledge than I have. So, is this FRT or National? Who is responsible for headlight wiring?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~George

Well, we (the BW and I) checked out the headlight situation and found that with the engine running and the Parking Brake "off", the low beam headlights are on. (There are also driving lights on, but that is normal) With the Parking Brake "on" the low beam lights go out. Cool, Huh! There is no indication on the panel that any lights are on.

I have an appointment with Freightliner for some other warrantee work, so I mentioned it to them and they sounded like the will take care of it. Remember, they are responsible for the braking system including the parking brake.

My BW mentioned this a few times but like a guy I just passed it off, no more!

Thanks~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~George

If you have the day head lights there should be a indicator on dash panel my is on all the time until you switch on head lights for night time driving.
