Got a 09 c2 lift bus.. The issue is I cannot get the brakes to release it just dumps the air. Now when the parking brake is applied and shut the bus off it gives you that error steady buzzer that tells you your parking brake is released and with the bus on the park brake light is not on with the park brake applied. I cannot get the lift to work either im assuming the same error that tells me the park brake is not applied is causing the lift to not work not that the lift is causing the issue. Anyone got any ideas I checked all the connectors on the chassis module they looked ok.I hooked up service link and had no active faults only odd thing was when i hooked it up the abs light came on and wont go off and according to the wabco software I have a abs light on but no faults. Im trying to locate the air manifold unit module but not having any luck. Thanks
The AMU or air management unit is right behind the transmission just above the ujoint as is the norm. look for the valve section (module) with the yellow 1/4" air line that is the parking brake section if the drl(daytime running lghts) don't come on with the brakes released the modual is bad. Did your Thomas dealer give you access to My TBB online? You can look up wiring and locations on there. The lift interlocks must see parking brake or the lift wont work and the brakes wont release. Also when you do release the brakes you need to make a full brake app as you push in the yellow valve or it will dump all the air, and hold your foot on the brakes untill the drl lights come on just to be sure.
Knew about the lift switch the drivers hate that feature and get messed up all the time. No the drl's do not come on. Only have a few c2's and not to familiar with tbb but i do have access to it ill fumble through it after lunch. Have to chip away all the undercoating they sprayed this one down really well. Thanks for the help guys.
Well after sitting over night everything will work once but after you shut it off and turn it back on the problem comes back and does it the rest of the day so im at a loss. Ill go double check the harness. Thx
Could not find anything rubbing there or anywhere else except a ac line i tied up a little bit better
FYI guys....our buses have two Chassis Hub Modules side by side. For diagnostic purposes, you can switch the two modules and see if it fixes your problem. If (with emphasis on the if) the other Chassis Hub Module doesn't use the section that happens to be bad, you can leave it that way! (This worked for us on one bus and got it right back on the road).
