2000 Fleetwood Flair auto park light

Hi,
I have a 2000 Fleetwood Flair 30 H with the 454cu in and Workhorse chassis.
Anybody out there have any ideas on why the auto park light stays on and when it is shifted into reverse from a cold start the coach will not move. It will move, only after it is shifted into 1st then back to reverse. The relay that activates, when it is shifted from park to any drive position, is energizing but there appears to be no power on the contacts. That is about as far as I have got so far. Where can I get a wiring diagram?

Hello godddard and welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck and keep us posted.
Just a thought on the auto park brake issue; have you checked the fuses? How about the fluid level in the reservoir?

Flair auto park light

Thanks for the welcome. After further investigation on the problem, I found that the pressure switch(green - ac delco # 15961566) on the pump was bad and leaking fluid, $77 later and an easy installation we are back on the road again. I found one on Amazon for 55.97 including 1 day shipping to have as a spare,quite a bit cheaper.
Thanks again.

Hi
Does the green switch just screw in? Do I need any special tool for this switch? My light (auto park) is always on.

Yes it just screws in.
It was very easy, I think I used a 9/16 open ended wrench and a little ptfe tape on the threads for good measure, very easy.

Hi
I also have a 2000 Flair.
Did you have to bleed the system when you installed the green switch?
Where are the fuses located for the auto-park?
Thanks again.

No, didn't have to bleed system, just replace the part.
Unrelated to the present subject,have you had problems with your brakes ever?

Fred, back again.
I only had this Flair for 2 months. It's in exc. cond. My auto-parks works fine. I'm just getting cold feet about about keeping the Flair in lew of all the auto-park problems.
Is everyone having this problem or does it just looks like alot in reference to the forums? PS: Where are the fuses located? Thanks for the response.
Fred from Pasco, WA.

There's lots of info on this brake system at "The Chassis Club Forums" / "Workhorse Custom Chassis Motorhome Forum". Start with this thread: "Parking brake & trans. question".

Fred, don't worry, I have had the Flair for 10 years and the Auto Park problem has only happened once. I haven't had occasion to change the fuse, but I think there are 2 locations for the fuses:- one being under the steering wheel area of the cab and then the other under the hood at the right side (as you look into the engine compartment).
The brake issue has happened twice, The first time , the front calipers froze and burned up the pads, the second time was because the first repair wasn't done properly. The disc caliper pistons get rusty,so if they are not exercised regularly, then the brakes may freeze, so to avoid this problem, I start the engine once every 2 weeks and pump the brakes, I haven't had a problem since I started doing this.
The Flair should be a good vehicle for you, I have been pleased with it.
Dave
