Oh hey, here I was thinking the trip was going well....AND THEN....
I'm in a truck parking lot, ready to get back on the road, and when I try to start the coach I get the following messages on the Info Center (that little screen beside the steering column):
PARK SET IN GEAR
ENG ECU NO DATA over 25 seconds
TRANS ECU NO DATA over 25 seconds
Additionally, no idiot lights on dash, shifter is blank, and my odometer mileage is flashing.
Gages work (shows PSI, fuel, etc). Dash air works. Friggin low PSI buzzer works [side note: anyone know how to disable that??].
I called Freightliner, nothing useful to contribute. After I kept hammering on the fact that it looks like maybe something is loose??? they said perhaps there is something wrong with the J1939 communication wires. Thanks goodbye goodluck.
This exact thing happened last October in Illinois at a rest stop, but magically resolved 4 hours later while I was waiting for the tow truck. I still drove it into the Freightliner shop there, and $1000 later still had no answers.
Any suggestions?!?!?! Legit ones. Thanks.
Stuck in southern Wyoming until this gets resolved - guess I get to watch the wicked storms roll through
