Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If the clutch and brake switches are definately good then check the harness and connector pins for damage or corrosion. It is likely that your jake is not working as well which is common when there is either a faulty switch or the loss of ground in that circuit due to loose connections or a faulty switch. Test with an OHM meter for ground as on Freightliner and some others the circuit grounds through the clutch switch for both Jake and cruise. Test for ground or jump the cicuit to ground and see if it works for test purposes. On Frightliner it is circuit D953 on the cruise switch which should be two wires. They share ground with the park brake and the service brake for input to the ECM. Ohm that to ground.Let me know. I will be with family for some time today but will reply back on my next available login

OFF ROAD CRUISE IS WORKING. AND I APPLY PARKING BRAKE ITS COME ON IDLE,

Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 3 years ago

Sounds like your park brake switch is bad. The park brake switch lets the engine ecm know if you are using cruise switches for cruise or fast idle. This is a very common switch to fail. The air manifold is located in lower section of the middle dash. I am attaching a diagram of the air manifold with all the switches. Check the park brake cutout switch. Unplug it and stick a paper clip between the 2 wires and try fast idle. Unplug paper clip vice versa.

Also, if your truck is equipped with optimized idle, the park brake circuit goes thru a couple more switches and could be one of them. Does your speedo and tach work? I have to run out for a while with family but I will reply back at my next login. Let me know the results.

Hi. I prefer to use a digital multimeter to test both voltage and OHMs for continuity. I am not sure how accurate the power probes are for testing for a good ground. You could show ground but there still could be hgh resistance in the wire. When using OHMs you want to see close to zero or similar to if you toughted the two test leads together. The symptoms sound like a swith or harness problem to the switches or possibly betwen them and the ECM. Check the connectors , wires and cnnector pins for damage. Verify the continuity in the switches and grounds with an Ohm meter to get an accurate measured value. Let me know. The Detroit software can also quickly show the switch status as it seams you have this software? The other suggestion if all switches and the harness checks ok is to be sure you have the most current software updates and all the parameters in the ECM are correctly set. Let me know
