I do have an air leak in a valve thats under the fifth wheel that has one hose on each side i dnt know if its for the abs.... But i bypassed it and closed it with a hose so the air wont escape.

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

Fault Code 41: Ran

ge Failed to Engage

J1587:MID 130 SID 56 FMI 7


Fault Code 41 indicates the transmission is unable to com-

plete a shift across the range. Th

e range is either stuck in HI

or LO, or cannot complete engagement into HI or LO.


The transmission attempts th

e same range shift 5 consecu-

tive times and determines the shift cannot be completed

based on the speeds across the back box.

Conditions to Set Fault Code Active


This fault causes a 5-speed fallback and the transmission

stays in either LO range or

HI range. When the vehicle

comes to a stop, an attempt to

shift into LO range is made.

Possible Causes

This fault code can be caused

by any of the following:

• Low air pressure

• Contaminated air supply

• Air leak

• Range valve

• Range Synchronizer

• Range Actuator, Cylinder, Piston or Yoke

Additional Tools

• Basic hand tools

• Two 0-100 PSI Air Pressure gauges
