I have a 2000 Freightliner motor home with a Cat engine.

Customer Question
I have a 2000...

I have a 2000 Freightliner motor home with a Cat engine. Until today there have been no starting problems. Won't start today, I turn the key and wait for the "wait to start" light to go off which it does but all other panel lights go off also. Then all panel lights came on alternately and rotated around the panel. When I turn the key it won't crank & I hear a loud click or clunk behind the dash panel on the driver side. Is it the solenoid I am hearing? I am a new diesel owner, it's a rear engine of course but I'm not sure what I'm hearing behind the panel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Is anyone available to help?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

I already sent my question, I've been waiting....

Hi, Yes, The professionals are not employees of the site and it is a way to connect with an actual technician for technical help or advice. The site splits the deposit with the professional on positive feedback and accepted answers. It makes an incentive for a business owner or technician to spend some time outside of work to help people out and make some extra cash after a long days work or on breaks in between jobs. Customer service can get this closed out for you
