Customer Question
I'm having some issues...

I'm having some issues with my 2008 Sterling acterra..... I've got a ECU 128 code that is on until I release the brake check engine light with the little motor on top is on... it used to come on intermittently and then go off but it came on the other night and it stayed on and I am finding that I am losing power just before Regen which is sometimes twice a day

Mechanic's Assistant: We'll do all we can to help. Is there anything else the Heavy Equipment Mechanic should be aware of?

No not that I can think of at the moments
