ok

the most common failure for this is the neutral safety switch in the trans.

the ecm needs to see the trans in neutral before it will allow the engine to crank and start. when it does not see this, the code is set.

the switch may be on the outside of the trans at the shift lever. if it is not then it is internal which means the pan would have to be removed to access the switch

Is the sensor in pan ,,on valve body
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 7 months ago

as I stated before, take a look under the truck and see if it is external where the shifter attaches to the cable.some of the old 2000 series are external.if it is, it is an easy fix. if it is not there, then yes, it is internal on the linkage to the valve body.

Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 7 months ago

no, that would be from a parts department. you can get it from either a cummins dealer or a freightliner dealer.

Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 6 months ago

you may have moved some wiring under the truck while you were looking for the switch and it made a better connection.
