Is this info specific to my model or "in general"?



(wasnt there chat button on here someplace?)
HI
Yes it went from chat to Q & A , due to time

This is specific, they kept changing it
if you go to dealer and ask , they would look it up and tell you 3 places

do you perhaps have any diagrams or schematics?

you see....both terminals on the buzzer are "high" (hot) One is supposed to be...its the B+ terminal but the other terminals (which say Slow and FAST) im assuming one or the other are supposed to be grounded. The other terminal is at 12V as well. So as you can guess...no ground...no buzz. Now this is when the pressure gauge is reading below 60psi. Nothing changes when it increases beyond 60psi. So I just have a buzzer that is not buzzing.
Hi
that is the low air pressure sensor not completing circuit
,Sorry I do not have diagram, but you really don;t need then that
just locate the low air pressure sensor, and replace
to verify that it is bad take wire from switch, and ground it , the buzzer will go off

What I need is something to go on.... I am not "near" the truck right now.
and I wont be until the morning. If anything is amiss I might have an additional
question with regard to this issue. So if you even have a part number
I can perhaps look it up and see what this pressure sensor looks like
so I can find it easier. And by the way......when you said pressure "SWITCH"
you are using the terms SENSOR/SWITCH interchangablly correct?
Hi
Yes sensor / switch , same thing

Let me see if I can get Part #
