Medium and Heavy Trucks
Have Truck Repair Questions? Ask an Expert
hi Steve, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. It sounds like you have a short either in the harness, Turn signal switch or a faulty turn stalk module that these circuits all run through which is located inside the center dash. Inspect these circuits and let me know
Click on this link and see section 8 for the electrical system.
Would that be the chassis node you were refering to?
See PDF page 263
Sorry 253 i meant
Test the turn signal switch and harness and take a look at the turn stalk module
Try a wiggle test on the turn switch and harness to see if it has an effect on the symptoms
I agree as it says anything over 65 amps will overheat or overload the Node.... either a short in the harness, bad grounds or open circuit or corrosion causing high resistance in the circuit, A wrong style or incorrectly wired bulb in the circuit are all possibilitys
I help on here in between jobs so I understand completely. Keep me posted.
Let me know. Thanks for the follow up Steve. It has been a pleasure to help. Please remember to rate my answers and service to you if you found the information helpful as that is how the site credits the experts for their time helping.
Id take a close look at the harness and connector pins for anything indicating corrosion, shorts possibly related to moisture intrusion, etc. Test all connections to the turn stalk module and the module itself. Click on this link for the procedure. Please let me know when successfully have saved the info so I can shut down the link.
There are test procedures and test values for that turn stalk module. It could be a shorted module itself. That is what I am leaning towards if the harness has no shorts and the grounds are good.
That link covers all that info for that module... I would do a thorough test on the module as covered in the manual and if any part of the test fails, replace the turn stalk module.
Hi Steve, Did you get this resolved?
