Without going to Blue Bird, where can I find a new replacement body solenoid for my 2002 All American? It has two of them. The one for lights and other continuous circuits has been getting stuck on and off, sometimes comes on partially when the bus is off, and when it is on, shows a voltage drop on the output side- enough that when I jump the solenoid, my led lights will become brighter.
I tried my napa dealer, and they could not come up with an exact replacement.
The ones I installed we got to do under warranty. No problems as of yet we got our fleet right in the fall. Winter hit and they failed one at a time. BB turned us on to this bulletin.The black OEM relays were sticking in the winter months. Give them a tap with a screwdriver handle and bam, back to normal. I saved the old ones though they work great for projects.

Any local electrical dealer which sells Cole Hersee brand can get you one similar I believe. Our local vendor is Intermountain Electric which is an AC Delco distributor. These are rated at continuous duty and must be replaced with the same solenoid or they won't last. There is an amp rating on them so if you can find the amp rating i.e. 150 Amp Continuous duty 12 V solenoid, then that's what you need. This is not to say your solenoid is a 150 Amp. If you have a Blue Bird aftermarket parts book it should be located there and state the Amp rating if you can't find it on the solenoid. I may be able to locate for you if you can't find it.
