Great input on the areas to ask the CAT shop to look into. And if the controller, X's 2 on call in Kevin Waite, a nice gent, and good ton us CC owners.

Please close the loop back on what was root cause. And best of luck,
Smitty

Finally got it back

Finally got the coach back from the Cat repair facility after waiting a month and a half for the part to come in from Beredson Fluid Power. The Cat folks ordered the same part number that was on the module but when they got it in from Sauer Danfoss, it was wired differently so they had to modify it themselves and rewire it to get it to work. Hard to believe that Sauer Danfoss does not have a small inventory of these modules in stock and that if the part fails, you got to wait four to six weeks. I can't imagine what we would have done if we were far from home. We need to take another shake-down cruise but on the way home from the facility, the engine was running at around 180 and the transmission about 210 but it was a hot day and we were in stop and go traffic. I thought both should run about the same temperature but I called a local Allison tranny repair company and they said that 210 isn't unusual on a hot day in traffic and that I shouldn't really get concerned until I get up to 230 or so. He said that the transmission warning light will warn of a serious overheat condition and should that occur, just pull over and let the engine run to cool it down before resuming the trip. Bottom line, it was the fan control module that was bad.

When the control S/D fails the fan run on high speed, if you unplug the module it will run on high speed, does not cause a problem to operate the coach.

Don't know how to access it

That's my understanding. I just don't know how to phyically access the module should it happen to fail in the future.
