2004 Winnebago Journey

After sitting for the past few months my 2004 Winnebago Journey will not crank over to start. Along with not cranking, transmission control unit does not light up. Any help would be appreciated.

Since it want turn over what's the battery voltage? Do you have a engine battery disconnect?

Are the batteries charged up? That'd be the first thing I'd check.

Batteries are fully charged and no battery disconnect switch.

Freightliner chassis. I beleave the problem is because transmission shift pad has no power, at least it doesn't light up telling what gear it's in. Been trying to find a wiring diagram for it, with no luck.

Sounds like poor battery connection, or ground wire. I'd remove all connections, clean and retighten. Special emphasis on the ground wire where it attaches to the frame. Sorry, you can't tell by looking at them, so forget that. Good Luck! And be sure to post back on the problem when found.....

It won't even attempt to crank if the tranny pad has no lights showing. That's because it cannot be determined the tranny is in neutral, so no go.

You may have a loose connection at the tranny computer or one of its associated relay boxes, usually found in a rear bay on the passenger side. Could also be a broken wire or bad connection at the shifter bad or the tranny itself, but the electronics module(s) is usually the place to start looking.

I tend to agree with you on what maybe the problem. Haven't been able to find any relays for the tranny. Didn't find any broken wires at the shifter, fuse at batteries is good and didn't find any broken wires around tranny. Don't think the tranny is bad, don't know how it could have gone bad just sitting there. Have to get it going soon before the snow gets here and at a point I don't know what to do. Have searched all over the internet for a wiring diagram without much luck. Thanks for any help you can give.

Still no luck finding out why I have no power to transmission control pad. Haven't found any relays for transmission or circuit breakers. Checked inside all bays, front c/b panel and underside of motorhome. Trying to decide what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are positive on healthy batteries, I see minimal downside to the advise on cleaning posts, and chasing down and also cleaning major ground connections.

I would also cycle off/on the salesman switch inside the front door, several times. If you can start the generator, do so, and let run a few minutes and try it again.

Other tips would be to check the ignition switch, that nothing has shook loose.

After parking it last time, did you do any other maintenance or work on the coach or engine area? If so, then consider if any of that work may have resulted in an area to check.

You might also call and talk with CAT (C7?) and or Allison, and see if going to NAPA/Autozone and getting a computer code reader could help. Frequently these codes need to be converted to CAT and Allison to interpret.

Best of luck to you on this, and please close the loop back and let us know the root cause!!

I'll bet there is a battery cut off switch somewhere. Our Journey has one. If that is off nothing works.
