Electric gremlins

Powered up the coach ignition and all the warning lights came up as should be.
Started the engine and all the warning lights stayed on, not as it should be!
The fuel gauge is also not registering the tank level.
I have heard the lights not going off after the engine catches could mean a bad ground on the Alt. or the Alt. is going bad.
Any thoughts

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Sorry I can't offer advice on that one. Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Or you have a glitch in the electronic data that is being sent to the gauges. Recently happened to me, diesel tank errors, low voltage indicated, lack of air pressure...shut down, let it sit, restart, all is well.

Hope that is your issue as well.

Are you sure the key is in the "run" position? A similar thing happened to me in one of my cars and it was the key stopping between the "start" and "run" positions.

First thing I tried after she warmed up.
The only change was some lights went off and every time I shut down and restart it seems different lights stay on?
The only constant is the fuel gauge won't budge.

tried shut down and restart a few times, the only change is some lights went out while others stayed on, seems like a different bunch on each start.
Going to call Monaco coach and see if they can help.

It would really help to know what coach you are asking about. Make, model and year?? Maybe add it to your.

Same as Bob - Fuel Gauge doesn't register

Bob,

Don't feel alone. Our fuel gauge was working until we went over some rough road and now it doesn't register.

I sure love to hear back if you come up with anything and I am happy to do the same.

Our rig is a 2005 Monaco Safari Gazelle - she is sweet thing with a devilish sense of humor...like no fuel gauge!!!

Best to you,

Kimberly

electric gremlins (2000 HR Endeavor 100,000+ miles)

My son in law is a diesel mechanic so we went over the coach, fixed a few items along the way, but still have the warning lights and no fuel level indication, so I'm making an appointment with Walsh Freightliner Service in Ft. Myers Fl.
Good reviews and reputation and they have all the required test equipment to locate the problem ( I Hope).

Matilda (our coach) is now in the Freightliner service shop, after a quick trip up to the Florida pan handle without a hitch or hiccup.
Decided to have the scheduled service work done and the electrical diagnostic done at the same time.
If nothing else I hope to have the fuel gauge working again, for the comfort of my wife!

Pull the top of the dash off so you can get to the annunciator panel. Squeeze the release of the 2 connectors, wiggle, remove and reinstall. Check for results. If still faulty install a new ground from the panel to chassis. repeat above.
