We have a 2005 Coachman Cross Country, Freightliner-Allison 5 spd. Applied the air brake and pushed the "D" button to go into drive and it blew a fuse. It gave me a "Brake Set in Drive" message. Replaced the fuse and it worked a few more times and after staying the night at a rest area we tried to set off again but it shows the message again as well as a message saying "ECU no info for 25 seconds". Anyone have a direction to head in?

It's basically in Drive and Park at the same time.

Which Allison do you have?? The 3000 / 4000 series doesn't have a "park", so I'm assuming a 1000?

Actually,,,,it doesn't have a 'Park' It just has the 'D' for drive and the 'R' for reverse and of course the 'N' for neutral. It also shows a '0' (zero) on the shift display. But you can still push the N button to put it into neutral and the '0' is replaced with the NN on the marque. I'm baffled,,,,,I'm lmost sure it's electrical. Not qualfied but very compitent,,,,just don't want to void our warranty.

All I can do is guess . . .. Probably either a transmission ECU, or quite possibly a bad power lead going to it.

If you have a warranty left after three years I would use it. Troubleshooting electrical problems that include engine and transmission computers gets very hard. You can do it yourself if you get the wiring diagrams and spend the time to locate the components. A loose connector will be a probable cause and you could check those out yourself.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! As I've troubleshooted the problems a little I've also noticed that the speedometer pegs all the way over when I start the coach. Don't know if anyone else has had this issue but I'm trying not to leave anything out.

Allison Transmission publications may offer some guidance in your troubleshooting.
