Customer Question
Hi my fist time posting...
Hi my fist time posting here , I have a question I have a Detroit series 60 2004, I had the truck park for a few months and now it won’t start. The only fault code that I have is relative humidity sensor- circuit fail low flash 18. Can this be the problem why it won’t start? I have put a new fuel filter, I bypass the the fuel tank hose just in case there was leaks.?the strange thing is that it will turn on with ether but at longest I have the gas peddle press down if let go of the gas I will turn off. What can the problem be? Thanks for your help
