I have a 2005 Voyage W-20. On a recent trip of approximately 6500 miles I had this chime alarm go off twice -(like a low fuel warning or lights left on) while driving. All gages were good, no warning lights and all fluid levels were okay. Performance was okay. Thought the first time I could have forgot to reset the oil change, but I did a reset after an oil change on this trip. Any ideas or is this a computer glitch?

You are right Rit, computer glitch. It seems to be a pretty common occurance in Workhorse chassis equipped with Actia instrument cluster. I have a 2004 W-22, and have expierienced this several times. Sometimes fuel or temperature gauge or both will go wild and hit the peg along with the chimes. Its not supposed to do this, but many owners have expierienced it, and it doesn't seem to do any harm, except to put a scare into the driver of the motorlhome.

We heard those chimes on our last trip and couldn't figure it out either. Coincidentally the chime stopped when I cancelled the turn signal I'd left on for a while, so I thought that might have been it. First time we'd heard the chime in over a year of owning this MH.

Maybe the Leveler Chime going off? I had that happen when I manually turned them off when all the red lights went out. Now, I retract/store the levelers and let it turn itself off, no chimes since. My 0.02 cents

It'll come on in about 2 to 3 minutes after the signal is initiated.

So... it wasn't cooincidence after all? Guess this rig is a bit more sophisticated than I gave it credit for. Thanks again DriVer!
