I have a 2000 Pace Arrow Vision on a Ford Chassie with a V10 I am at 43000 miles. I have just returned from a trip where I experienced the following. Arrived at the campground with no porblem. Unhooked the car and started to back in to the campsite. As I was backing in the "Check Engine Light" came on and the "Transmission Control Indicator light" started flashing. Someone told me that the problem may be with the onboard computer and advised me to reset it by disconnecting the battery cable. I did this before leaving the campground and everything appeared, and operated normal all the way home. I stopped in the driveway to unload. When I went to move the unit forward to its normal parking place both lights came on again before I had moved a 100 feet. Would apprecite any suggestions on what may be causing this and possible solutions

The warning lights indicate that a code has been stored in the processor. The code(s)must be retrieved with an analizer that can see the Ford specific code that will give you a clue as to what has failed or needs repair. Some analizers cannot retrieve Ford specific codes or transmission codes.

HKB,

As you can see below I have essentially the same rig that you (36B) do. During the first year I had a problem with delayed 1st / 2nd shifts and the transmission indicator flashing.
The fix was additional grounding for the computer. There was a service bulletin that covered the problem. I can look up the number tomorrow. It seems unlikely that this problem would take 7 yrs and many miles to show up ... but just a thought.

I'll try to find the codes that were stored and the SB number and PM you.

BTW ... knock on wood, only problem with the chassis so far

Roger

Autozone or similar facilities often offer to read codes for free... call them first. This will give you an idea of what is causing your problem.
