Error Lights and no power ISL400

I have the coach sitting in front of my house to install the solar panel. Started it up to take it back to storage and I get a warning and stop engine lights plus the ATC and Check Transmission lights all on solid. Plus the seat belt light blinking even though I have the seat belt connected. The engine is de rated so I am unable to move it. Will probably have to have it towed to Cummins in the morning. Anyone have any ideas where to check? Have only owned the coach since June 10th and it only has 2200 miles on it. I suspect an electrical problem but don't know where to look.

Undo what you did with the electric system then try it again.

Installed a solar panel. That entailed finding the pre wire in the roof and drilling a hole up to the outside then hooking up the solar panel on one end and the batteries on the other. I did disconnect it but the problem is still there.

when you disconected the wire could a wire come undone and not got hooked up? I know when I changed my batt. I found a wire that had never been installed. also did you check ALL the fuses all over the MH? Mine has them in about 5 spots. good luck keep us posted

Found two fuse blocks in the front drivers side compartment. If there are others I need help locating them.

Brian......Disconnect the main negative cable from both battery banks.....wait 60 seconds and reconnect. Try to start it then and see what happens.

Don I will give this a try but I had already used the main disconnects in the battery compartment so I would think that would do the same thing.

Brian...They usually do, but often there is a small gauge wire that is connected directly to the batteries that isn't affected by the disconnects. Make sure you're disconnected from shore power too.

Well the coach is on it's way to Cummins. Hopefully I will know something by tomorrow. I had called Cummins and they said they would send someone out but that if it was not a problem covered by the Cummins warranty I would be responsible for the charges. They made the decision for me easy at that point so had Coach Net tow it in.

Brian...It's time for you to take a few days off while your baby is in the shop. It's seems like you've been doing one project after another. Rest for a few days and hopefully you won't go into motor home project withdrawal....

After having our last coach for 6 years I had it just about the way I wanted. Now I have to start all over just don't want to wait that long to get everything done.

Last project was to install a shelf for the trash can in the area with the louvers in the kitchen. See post 175 under quick tips and easy mods. Still have to purchase the hinge for the door but it worked out great.

I am already in withdrawal . Actually I need to go camping. Sure wish they would get my jack in so I could hit the road.
Summer has finally arrived in the great Northwest .

It sure sounds like the motor's ECM is fried. Glad it is under warranty. I just had to buy a new ECM because my Check Eng and Stop Eng lights were flashing on and off.
