Warning signal when put in drive

I have a 2001 Monaco Diplomat LE with Allison 6 speed transmission. When I put it in drive, a warning signal similar to the low are signal goes off. Everything seems to work and have even driven it for miles, but alarm never went off. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

It might be time to replace the parking brake switch. When we had our 2003 Endeavor, we had the same type of issue, and after replacing the switch , no more problem. Depending on where you get the switch they cost about $40-$60 and are real easy to replace. There are several older post here that cover this in a little more detail.

Check the Jacks Panel to be sure the Jacks light is off. You could have low fluid level in the Jack Tank causing the alarm.

Well you have 2 areas to check but my vote is the parking brake switch. Mine has been doing the same thing. I have the new switch just haven't installed it yet.

If it is the same alarm as the low air warning, you are flirting with trouble.

What happens if you loose air pressure? You won't know.

Yes, the spring brakes will come on, but that not the same as stopping with all of the brakes. Then there is that, stuck in the middle of the road thing.

IMHO, not knowing what it is, and driving it, is bad enough, but knowing the problem, and not fixing it immediately, is just wrong.

If I forget and put it in drive before releasing the park brake then the warning signal will be on, but of course that's not your problem since you say it stays on while driving!
