Customer Question
Good morning, I got...

Good morning, I got 2013 Freightliner Cascadia and have warning on dash board for RAC System failure ( truck was very recently in accident and has a small black box for collision mitigation avoidance on front of truck )

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you seen this error before with the same vehicle?

Never before and I think from that accident it knocked the box or sensor in it out and now showing like there is a imminent danger or truck rolling over

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model of your 2013 truck?

Freightliner Cascadia its a semi truck, heavy duty

Mechanic's Assistant: Hi there. Is there anything else the freightliner Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

I have recently changed tires, brakes, king pins on front axle...spring leaf on one of drive axles...

Hi, I'm Wayne.

I'll be assisting you with this issue today.

Thank you for coming to Just Answer

Your Question is as important to us as it is to you.

I am sorry to hear you are having this issue.

I go offline at 3 pm CST. M-F

Weekend 2 pm CST for the day.

That code is from the accident

its commonly from the gyroscope sensor failing itself. This sensor is typically located behind the cab.

That needs to be replaced at the dealer and the software updated.

I hope this helps you.

Wayne
