Have 2 tripack apus on our trucks that are having the same

Customer Question
issue. They will only start...
Have 2 tripack apus on our trucks that are having the same issue. They will only start on the ac mode. I looked at everything and cant find a visual issue. I looked to see if it had a relay problem but theres only one relay that does the starting. Why doesn't it start on the other settings. It beeps like its going to start and then it stops for a brief second like its fixing to start and then it goes back to beeping. It doesn't trip the red trip switch or nothing. It just keeps doing it until the batteries are worn down. and ac mode will only start if the temp is set way down. Please advise?

everything works fine but only in ac mode.
I have not noticed any codes. Like I said it does not trip the rest button either. Normally if it trips the button then you will have a code
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

I guess I would like to know if that fuse will have something to do with the starter not starting the motor.
You have 4 settings on your controller.
Ac mode : Motor does start and everything runs normal.
fan mode : don't start motor
heat mode : don't start motor
power only mode: Don't start motorIt just keeps beeping like its going to start. All the fuses are in good shape.
So why does it start just in ac mode and not the others if the same relay does the starting?
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago
