On the 2017 freightliner u push the drivers side lower mirror all the way in on the right side of the mirror, reach inside and disconnect the temperature sensor inside and u can idle ur truck and it won't shutdown. When truck goes into shop, reconnect the sensor so maint won't find it...

Tampering with company equipment. Thank you for demonstrating a great way to lose your job.

One tip I got from an experienced driver about that mirror sensor is to try and park your tractor so the sun will beat down on the back of it. Sometimes that will keep the truck idling when otherwise it might shut down. I haven’t tried this yet but I’m keeping it in mind with summer coming up.

Anyone tried this ?

That’s for sure. Never a good or smart decision to make.

In my experience with cascadias you pop the trailer brakes but not the tractor brakes which im assuming fools the computer into not knowing your parked but i always choked my tractor tires parked on flat and made sure i had good trailer brakes
