Service centers in South Carolina?

I have a 2006 Revolution LE with a CAT engine. Just wondering if anyone has used the Blanchard Equipment service center in Columbia for work. I am getting a transmission communication error and looking for a service center nearby. Thanks

I would say if they work on Allison transmissions is what you need.

I'm not sure that Gaffney (as much as I love them) would take this on. My experience is about all they will do on a CAT is change filters, oil, etc. When my CAT had a sensor issue they sent me to Carolina CAT in Charlotte. Folks here said that was a good thing because CAT doesn't share the diagnostics to non dealers.

But, it is an interesting subject because I don't know if CAT (or Freightliner) will touch the Allison. Please tell us how this works out.

Unplug and replug the gang connector at Allison shift pad and ECU.


Then check for DIAGNOSTIC CODES using the shift pad.


What codes show up?



If still an issue, go to an Allison dealer, not RV or chassis dealer.


Another option is this guy who repairs Allison shift pads and ECU's:

Sorry for the late responses and thanks for all the ideas. I have a Silver Leaf Electronics diagnostic program that I run on my laptop on all my trips. It is showing all the codes that have occurred over the last 3 months. I will unplug the connections as suggested then see what happens. I have a Spartan chassis. Thanks again.

These are the codes that the onboard diagnostic screen shows:

MID 130 Transmission SID 231 FMI 2
MID 130 Transmission SID 152 FMI 14
MID 130 Transmission SID 151 FMI 14

The red check transmission light comes on also.

Allison

Is the transmission shifting properly but just has codes? Friend has a 06 CC and the “communication bus wires” from trans got too hot and melted. But his would not shift.

Those are not trouble codes that I have seen before. I expect that you are reading a silveleaf derivitive of the trouble code.

Allison Transmission codes:
