Rudolph Diesel :

Hello Welcome to JA!

Rudolph Diesel :

The F between gears means there is a code in the system

Rudolph Diesel :

Here is how to retrive the codes

Rudolph Diesel :


Fault Codes Retrieval



Retrieving Fault Codes



1. Place the shift lever in neutral.


2. Set the parking brake.


3. Turn the ignition key ON but do not start the engine. If the engine is already running, you may still


retrieve codes, however, do not engage the starter if engine stalls.


4.



To Retrieve Active Codes:

 



To Retrieve Inactive Codes:





Start with the key in the

 



ON position. Turn the key OFF and ON four times


within five seconds ending with the key in the ON


position. After five seconds, a number(s) will appear


on the gear display which will identify the failure


mode(s). 25 will dictate no fault codes.


5. Note the codes




Start with the key in the ON position. Turn the key

 



OFF and ON two times within five seconds ending with the key in the ON


position. After five seconds, a number(s) will appear on the gear display which


will identify the failure mode(s). 25 will dictate no fault codes.

great Thanks

on the transmission

the code is showing the rail select motor

this can be caused by a poor connection or a bad push pill motor on the transmission selector, i would clear it and the see what you have then

25 means end of test

Driver Instructions

 

 

On the meritor code

That is right rear wheel sensor

Open circuit is detected

Check Sensor wiring, replace Sensor if necessary.

Most of the time its a dirty plug in conection

 

 

 

 

ECU 130

130 Electronic Transmission

 

this is the ecu has detected a problem in with the tcm trans control mogul

 

i would clear the transmission

disconnect the battery

while the battery are disconnected

check the wheel sensor

wabco merritor parts work best on the sensor.

when your done at the sensor

re connect the battery

road test see what comes back

chances are the transmission will need the shift solenoid.

but it would not hurt to unplug and plug in the harness at the transmission too.

 

Let me know if i can help more!
