  1. is this the same as a 1999 Mack CH with the older style dash? mine is fried too.
  2. The No Power when Key On was a fuse F7 was blown any causing that problem. Still diagnosis the codes though. I checked the wiring plugs, all are clean, cleaned the battery terminals and checked the 30amp that powers the DEF, it's good. Anyone know what to check next and how to?
  3. on my way home last night, I got codes for my DEF pump or injector. Codes as follow: Spn 5394 fmi 5 (current below normal or open circuit /possible cause is DEF Doser or Doser pump assembly) Spn 5246 fmI 15. (Data valid but above normal values / no possible causes) So this morning I tried to keep coming home and the truck won't crank. (Key in on position, no gauges key in start, the gauges come on but no crank and then go out two seconds later). Is there something I can do to at least move the truck? My cell is 757-284-5306 thanks, andrew
  4. I didn't read all the replies so I may be repeating someone. My old CH had a "not charging" issue once and it took me forever to figure it out. I was a ground breaker on the fire wall. If I remember right it has two ground cables coming out of it and it's close to the starter solenoid. The cheap way to see if that's bad is to use a jumper wire between those two grounds and if your gauge is back up to 14 volt, that's what's bad. Hope that fixes all.
  5. Yep, I'm convinced my 1999 CH613 is more reliable. Less mpg but still higher profits.
  6. Check your batteries, there are two cables, one just for the starter and the smaller one for everything else. Follow that larger cable and make sure all connections are tight. Otherwise I don't know. Perhaps try jumping the starter to see if it works. Mack doesn't have very good quality anymore.
  7. I just called to see what's new. They replaced that injector, still had misfire problems, so they are replacing the full set that they just put in earlier this week. I hope it gets running soon.
  8. I'm still in Amarillo Tx, Friday they completed the cam, injectors, and dpf. We went for a test drive and it was still missing badly, maybe even worse. At first they were thinking maybe a valve was damaged inside the head. But Saturday a tech decided that it may have been a fault injector that they got. Haven't heard anything yet but I hope that's it. I've been at a hotel for a solid week now.
  9. No way! I don't want an automatic. I have an eaton 10 spd. Everyone lovee that M drive but I still don't trust it. Give it a decade and then maybe I'll be I'll trust it. As for my truck, I haven't heard any news for a while so Im going over to see what's up this afternoon
  10. I was wondering how badly I am stuck with thus truck but it sounds like I own it for life. It is what I want and set up as I wish. A little long on the wheel base for a tag axle would be nice but it's a good spec. It has to run good though with all this though.
  11. I thought it was premature too, the truck only has 733,000 miles on it. I think it had 675,000 when. I bought it and I didn't idle it over nights. So abuse from the first owners? I think the first owners were in Ca.
  12. Well it got worse, the cam shaft is ate up, all the lobes have at least a 1/4" groove dug through them. It's amazing the truck could function at all. Looking at $18,000 now to still do injectors, replace my bad dpf filter, and a new cam. I only paid $25,000 for that truck. This truck better run like a raped ape when it comes out.
  13. So best case if all I need is a dpf cleaning, it is $1,300 or $3,400 if the DPF filter is wasted and needs to be replaced. Also they say the injectors are what need to be replaced so they said the bill all together is $8,500. And down time I should be back out of the shop by tomorrow night. Almost sounds too good, is it?
  14. Can it unlock derate codes? Meaning like if the dpf clogs up and the ATS lockout happens, can that get rid of that? Also can it read fuel preasure if the truck can? 2011 mack
  15. I'm going in the morning to at least fix the dpf. Would like to get home for the injectors so I can be with my family while I'm not working.
