Sound but no light.....

Out on a 4000 mile trip in our 2000 Bounder Pusher. Right out of the clear blue I start getting this pulsing tone from the dash with the coach in gear and the E-Brake released. Driving me nuts. No lights, all gages show normal. 130lbs of air pressure. Brake will hold coach against 1/2 throttle. Coach rides and drives fine. Had hydraulic levelers services professionally 2 weeks ago. Reservoir is full. You could shave out of the reflection on the cylinders. Ready to pay my mechanics retirement to make that dang bell be quiet. I am considering Bose noise canceling headset but figured I better fix the problem instead.

Sorry for venting...

Thanks

Gene

My 99 Freightliner chassis uses two sensors for the park brakes warning system , one for the buzzer another for the light.
Redundant system , if you have a buzzer but no light , one sensor is bad , light but no buzzer the other sensor is bad .
Both light and buzzer ,more than likely, problems with the park brake.

When my sensor ( buzzer ) failed , I could get momentary relief from the sound , by cycling the park brake , on/off.
Sensors are mounted together inside drivers side frame rail above the rear axle.
Picture below , three wire sensor was my problem.

I wonder if unplugging the three wire sensor would silence the chime without making the Bounder unsafe? I have three more days on the road and this gets old fast.

I didn't try that , I had found the buzzer hidden in the dash wiring and it had a twisting face plate to partially deaden the sound .
NOTE , the warning system uses this buzzer for several functions , so don't disconnect it.

Low air , has it's own buzzer and is easily identifiable , by the shape and tag on it's wiring.
I relocated both for better access .

Couldnít be easy

Went looking for the switch when we stopped fir the night. Evidently the 2000 pusher uses a different setup. Found 2 suspect devices near the area you mentioned but nether looked like the smoking gun. Looks like I listen to the tone for 800 more miles then dump the problem on my mechanic.

Ok , I might have been a little , remiss , on my description of the location .

The black tube attached to the manifold in the picture , runs from the rear air brake chamber suppling the air pressure to the sensors , forward of the differential , inside the drivers side frame channel.
Not sure what your first picture is showing , but the second is a ride height control valve.

I've been assuming your coach is on a Freightliner XC chassis .

I'm helping out a couple of Fleetwood owners with 12 volt issues , and thought your coach would be on Freightliner as theirs are.

Might be good to know.

My chassis type might be a good piece of info to know. After talking to you last night and listening to that alarm for another 425 miles today I found it right where you said it would be. Although the location of mine is a bit more cluttered. No obvious damage so my mechanic will get the job. Between a busted slide topper, some ruptured hydraulic hoses, and a new radiator, this 4800 mile trip has been a bit costly. Oh well, pay it up front for a new one or slowly in repairs.
