Freightliner 2016 Issue

KLLM it hasn’t been doing it this week at all just have the MIL light on, and I have to wait another day to take it to freightliner.


Thursday, huh? No rush until you're sitting on the shoulder waiting on a tow. Good luck.

Who do you drive for?

Freightliner 2016 Issue

This week so far it hasn’t been doing it tends to only happen with a heavy load, I am taking it to the Petro Thursday

Two weeks this has been going on???

Would you rather miss hours in the shop, or hours on the shoulder followed by days in the shop?

The problem could be small, or it could lead to something major. At the very least do an onboard diagnostic. Google Freightliner parked menu Diagnostics. That'll lead you to your fault codes, to find out what's wrong. I highly suggest you find out sooner rather than later.

Freightliner 2016 Issue

Hey guys so the past couple weeks the solid amber engine light has been on not the check engine the solid one and then I noticed when I go uphill the actual check engine light comes on along with the little blinking DEF amber light the engine then derates to 55 for a bit then the lights go away except the solid amber one I don’t really wanna miss hours waiting in the shop, is this something serious. Thanks

Any of you guys or gals have any luck getting old IFTA stickers off the side of the rig? I tried peeling but they’re on there good.
