Customer Question

The Check Trans light comes on. Had it checked out and it is a communication (U0100) problem and they have not been able to check it with the engine running. Have an Allison 2000 trans with a Cummins 300HP engine. Any ideas as to what this may be

OK the first thing we need to do is quick checks for corrosion / water. Now the fun begins go to the engine ecm and you will see a connector with all black wires and a connector that doesn't. The one that doesn’t undo and inspect make sure all looks OK. If good go to tcu that's the transmission control unit and take a look at the connectors there and even make sure they are plugged in all the way. On the shift controller do you have the key Pad or shifter style
