A111 & A247

Description

A111 is a low steering pressure warning for storage by VHMS. It is designed to filter
out some service and operational conditions that would otherwise produce this warning.
A247 is a low steering pressure warning for display to operator. It is designed to give
immediate information to the operator, regardless of the cause of the problem.

Fault Conditions

A111 sets if low steering pressure input to IM remains after 90 seconds of engine running at 300 rpm or above and is sustained for 3 seconds at speeds of 1200 rpm or
above.
A247 sets if low steering pressure input to IM is on with engine running at 300 rpm or
above or if truck begins to move at 0.8 kph or more.

Operator Action

None

Fault Code

A146

Description

Hydraulic temperature sensors cause advance of engine rpm to advance level 2 for
cooling of hydraulic oil.

Fault Conditions

Fault Code

A282

Description

The number of excessive cranking counts and jump starts without the engine running
has reached 7.

Fault Conditions

Count is increased every time cranking reaches 30 seconds continuous and every
time a jump start is attempted (engagement of either starter without start enable). A
count of 7 disables further start attempts until the power is shut off.

Fault Code

A316

Description

Starter engagement has been attempted with engine running.

If not steering bleed, sets after 2 seconds if either starter engages with engine speed
above 500 rpm with crank sense on.
Resets after 2 seconds if conditions change.

Resulting Problem(s) Damage to starter and engine flywheel may occur.


Related Information

A laptop running "IM Realtime Data Monitor" software may be required to resolve this
fault.

Table
1. The normal corrective measure for this fault is to not engage the starter with the engine already running.
2. This fault's logic contains more than one parameter, each of which may have its own related fault code(s).
3. Since there are no active parameter fault codes, then based on the truck's setup while this fault is active,
determine which of the parameters in the Table is not shown in its expected state on the IM Realtime Data Monitor program. Refer to the schematic to identify which item(s) may be causing the parameter(s) to be in the
unexpected state. Troubleshoot these items.
4. If this fault is not currently active or if no parameters are currently in the unexpected state and the malfunction is still unresolved, then check each of the parameters in the Table for proper functionality. Troubleshoot all
item(s) related to the parameter(s) which are found to be malfunctioning.

A317

Description

Operation of brake auto apply valve without a detected response.

Fault Conditions

Sets if operation of brake auto apply valve for 1 second does not cause the service
brake pressure switch to operate or the front brake pressure to increase.
