    2008 MP8 hard to start.

    I have run into this twice recently and both times it was a bad injector. One is sticking open I believe therefore leaking down quickly. Both of the trucks I did, both ran great no drivability issues and no air bubbles indicating cups. There were no injector codes . Cylinder balance test will show it being off some but not really enough to condemn it on that alone.

    weird body code

    it is a code for the sim card in the telematics module. The state installed their own gps devices through Verizon. Turns out they weren't playing together nicely. disconnected gps. so far ok. Thanks

    Allison code P0843

    yes, unit has had oil and filters changed. Was in here in June for same code. Looked a little deeper and its a pressure switch. I actually found a ohm value for it when I googled it so I'm going to drop the pan and see what I see.

    Allison code P0843

    I'm having trouble locating in the parts manual which solenoid this is. Allison 4500. 13 Mack GU I don't have the breakouts I need to really diagnose it, boss wants to see if just replacing the solenoid will save a trip to the Allison dealer. Thanks!!

    Derate warning

    I have an odd one. 14 gu712 w/mp7. I'm the 3rd person to work on this so here's the story. Code for def quality. Derate for def quality on the lcd. Sensor was replaced, new def added. Same problem. Not sure what was done by 2nd person. I get it this morning , no codes, derate for def quality on lcd. Cleared lcd warning with the guard dog. Drove for 20 minutes no problems. parked in my bay, off for about 10 minutes. Turn ignition on , lightning bolt and check engine light and def quality derate on lcd all on. after about 5 seconds lightning bolt goes off, a couple seconds later the check engine light goes off. Again I clear the derate message with the guard dog. No codes. I can't find a learned data reset or an acm reset anywhere in ptt. What is going on with this thing? Thanks

    heated mirrors

    Actually I did pull the connectors apart and pried the connector yesterday. Put it back together and turned on the mirror heat. Then I wiggled the harness at the back of the panel and I could not get it to go off. Thanks for the help turckster!!

    heated mirrors

    ok, so I measured resistance , pin 4 to pin 27a... .5 ohm. Then pin 86 to 22b... 5.0 ohm. I wiggled the harness no changes. So then with everything connected , ignition on I pressed and held the switch and wiggled the connection at the dash panel and the light came on. So I have it positioned where it'll come on every time (so far ) but what would you recommend. I had my suspicions early on that the dash panel itself was bad. But I don't know what to do now. Should I order a dash unit? If I order a dash panel will it need to be programmed at the dealer?

    heated mirrors

    Does ambient air temp sensor play a part in this ?

    heated mirrors

    Also when I jumper pin 4 and 12 on the switch, press and hold button, I get 12 volts at the mirrors
