Shift inhibit

Stopped at a rest area and when getting ready to go got a transmission icon and the above message. Coach would not go into gear. Called FL 24/7. Tech suggested turning chassis battery off for 10-15 minutes to reset the various computers. It worked! Another factlet to keep tucked away just in case.

And, if an Allison, too high an idle speed will do the same thing!

Shift pad will flash and will not go into gear.

I had this happen twice. Turning the engine off and on eliminated the issue. Been fine for over 12 months now. Gremlins:-)

Mine does this at startup sometimes, but I just let it idle for a few minutes and it always goes away.

Issue my relate to a chassis battery state of charge and/or, alternator issues .

When the Cummins ECM sees low chassis battery volts , it holds the idle speed up to try and correct the issue , then the Allison ECM says , I don't like that RPM , and the fight is on .

Must be a fairly common problem. It has happened to me 2 or 3 times. I just shut it off and restart.
