Customer Question
I am having trouble...

I am having trouble with my Cummings electronic throttle and shift. It will not go out of warm neutral unless I shut the engines offf and in gear it will not rev the engines past 1000 rpms. Ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

4

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Tried putting it I. Neutral and the engines rev to full rpms in neutral but then I can’t get it out of neutral unless I shut off the engines

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just tell me if there is anything I can do to fix the problem under way.
