I have an 04 Sterling Acterra with a C7 Cat and an Allison

Customer Question

I have an 04 Sterling Acterra with a C7 Cat and an Allison MD3060 transmission. It came to me with complaint of no back up lights or alarm. The alarm was corroded and looked bad. Tried to run it from 12 volt battery and it would not work. Put new alarm
on and wired all in but still would not work. I followed wiring harness from back to firewall, unplugged harness where it comes across firewall and put power to the correct pin and the lights and alarm both worked. There is no relays or fuses in either fuse
box marked backup or reverse lights. Transmission shifts perfect. What could it be?

We were at that point last week already when we asked the question. We need info for wiring between ECU and relays and where the relays are located.

I wouldn't be able to tell you but ususally , allison has a relay circuit board mounted in a box somewhere near the tranmission but could be mounted in the cab .
