I am purchasing a 2000 Damon Escaper fixer upper. The previous owner passed away and I think he took his owners manuals with him. I ran a fail code test on the Allison 3060 transmission and have a 6942 fail code. No other codes appear when checking. I tried clearing the code several times and it comes back immediately. I had a technecian come by and put his computer on the coach and he thinks I need to either flash my ECU or replace if the flash doesn't work. The technician said the ECU would run around $ 2,400.
I talked to a mechanic friend about this he seems to think I can get the part # serial# off my current ECU and get a rebuilt one for around 3 to $400. Has any one out there got any advice on pro's, cons of ECU replacement or had this experience? I assume the cause of the problems was from an inproper connection on the engine batteries. One of the cables which has around 8 ground wires in it was connected to the positive terminal. I got that straightened out after talking to Charles at Spartan (nice guy)
