  2. I am having some problems with my truck, got it back from the shop and all was well for 68 miles. I stopped 2 miles from my home at the local quickie mart. Got back in the truck and it wouldn't start. Then waited, tried again. no start. Jumped out and jumped the solenoid and it started up for the last 2 miles home. In the driveway I waited and tried it again - no start. Graphic screen goes black. jumped and started up. I finally got it to start up again after jumping the solenoid, and I finally got an error code on the display that stated DIRECTION INDICATOR FRONT. No other errors have popped up, and if I stay on the starter a bit longer it will start up. Just feels like there is something wrong. Also when out to do jump at the solenoid something is buzzing in the engine compartment. Can get a video if that helps. Thanks all
  3. 2007 Volvo VNL 670 For Sale $25,000 Price D12 Volvo Motor Eaton 10 speed 712,930 miles Work station/ Dinette New tires New exhaust New Batteries Just serviced Very nice condition No leaks Everything works We bought this truck in California April of 2012 with 696,758 miles on it. We negotiated with the Volvo dealer to have the truck inspected by Cummins running the truck on their dyno, having all the fluids analyzed and had their top technician inspect every item and system on the truck and Volvo would repair all the issues that were found. This made the truck mechanically excellent 16,172 miles ago. Any small issues that came up since then were handled by a Volvo dealer. No one other than a Volvo dealer has ever touched this truck since we owned it. All of the smog equipment is in place and functioning. Contact- Tracy Green (925)381-0377 tgreen2348@gmail.com The truck is currently in Livingston TX
  4. I have a 1999 VNL 610. Just installed heated massaging seats. Prepared to run new circuit but wondering if anyone has found the wiring harness that would have powered the seats? Truck did not come with heated seats so maybe they never ran the wires though my "Circuit Hound" seems to indicate that there is a wire under the floor pad at the back of the seats near the opening for the air line. Thanks, Roy 1999 VNL 610 2005 Teton 40' Forester Grand

  10. Is there a good place to research a Volvo VNL, similar to Carfax? Thanks in advance -Bob
  11. This is to update the latest on this subject -- California prices... Same components as Trey's (see his post in 2015), total for us comes to about DOUBLE -- $3600: $107 - Regulator control $191 - Fan $40 - Gasket $575 - Fuel Pump kit $973 - Accessory driving device $1886 -- parts total Labor was 4 hrs diag + 4 hrs to repair ($1400); total = $3286 (excl. tax & other shop charges, approx. $500)
  12. It's been some time since we have updated... First we worked on the power panel by the entry door, this is a modular panel and laid out and functions much like aboard a large yacht. Since the overall interior is small all control and switching functions are carried out on the panel, almost every switch is also a breaker. Click For Full-Size Image. Click For Full-Size Image. There is an inset shelf at the bottom of the power panel with outlets to charge cell phones etc. Back side of power panel is accessible because whole wall is on hinges Click For Full-Size Image. The galley itself is all custom except the obvious appliances. The fridge is a 110v 11 cu ft. Whirlpool works very well off of our 400w of solar and 4 house batteries, Morning and evening top off with the Honda though the Trimetric is never below 50% in the morning. The drawer boxes are 1/8" tig welded aluminum to maximize internal space. The drawer slides are hold-in type RV slides, they have worked well. Not evident in the picture above is the plenum/atrium area above the galley that has yacht portlights into the footwell of the sky deck above. The barrel front cabinets feature steam bent oak rails top and bottom. Click For Full-Size Image. The ports open to allow hot galley air out. The counter is granite, the round sink is quite deep. The wall behind is tiled now. The seat next to the fridge door is in front of the closed rear slide out. When the rear slide is out the plywood base of the queen bed folds down behind it. The Dinette slide out was a big project. The area under the seats must accommodate a lot of stored stuff for preparing a huge dinner party we do each year with friends at a get together, some is accessed by removing the bottom cushions, some you open the doors and comes out on 200lb slides. The table removes and stores behind the seat back. A brace fits in the wall latch for the table top to secure the 2x3ft parrot cage when we are rolling, sockets on the floor of the dinette take screw down clamps to lock in the cage. The shades are double honeycomb hex cell shades for their insulating value in direct sunlight. The walls and ceiling are covered in a foam padded vinyl. All the wood started as solid oak lumber and was cut, sawn/milled/thickness planed and routed to size and shape. Click For Full-Size Image. It's been fun doing all the different types of work. Next project, the little bathroom.
  13. Hi Everyone! I am looking to see if anyone has any advice or has been through this before. I have noticed that my truck gets warmer than I think it should when pulling hills. I start watching the temperature gauge slowly climb while going up a hill to the point is turns on the "check" light as in the pic below. This only happens when pulling long grades with an outside temp over 75 degrees. Once or twice, it has warmed up as far as to trigger the "stop" light and displayed "engine coolant temp too high". but, mostly it just gets to the warning in the picture and stays there, then when I crest the hill, the temp comes back down and the light goes out. AS you can see in the photo, the temp gauge is nearing the red line. I have had it to the local dealership on 3 occasions to try to figure this out. It leaves no codes in the computer for them. They have replaced the temperature sensor and the fan clutch, but this is still happening. I have asked them about whether I should replace the radiator or the water pump? they say that those rarely go bad, and they don't think that they are the problem. I even went so far as to take the truck hooked to the camper to have a tech ride with me with the computer hooked up....of course that turned out to be a beautiful, cool, 68 degree day and no matter how hard I ran the truck up hills, it would not heat up at all ( of course...). They did ride along and confirmed the temperature gauge was reading correctly, so they ruled out a malfunctioning gauge. ... the following week we went to the beach and it heated up again... I am at a loss and have no idea where to turn. I am worried the truck could shut down somewhere, or It will run hot and cause damage...any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I have been dealing with this situation for nearly 2 years now...

  16. This is a basic battery question. It happens to be about our 2013 Volvo also, but the answers would apply to batteries in general. Just one of a few threads I found: The dealer tested the batteries 750 amps. Any time we climbed in the truck it always started and no problems I could tell. Someone may have left a switch on last weekend. Today it will only turn over once then stops. I plugged in the shore power and turned on the inverter. (It was not plugged in all winter but started every 2 or 3 weeks and run for 15 minutes or so) Hoping the inverter can bring the batteries up. The battery cables had corrosion that was cleaned off last fall. Today I noticed the corrosion is back and a bit worse than it was. Both positive and negative terminals. question: Now that the charge on the batteries has been drained does that mean they won't hold a charge anymore? I'm not sure when they were installed. 2013 VNL 450K miles.

  25. Thanks for all of the info and experience you have all posted on this forum, I've learned nearly everything I know about HDT Rv haulers from here. I'm up to page 95 of the 117 archived here. I have just purchased a 2000 Volvo that has a Cummins ISM mated to a Gen 1 Autoshift thats having problems. It shifts fine and engages into gear when its cold, after 10 minutes or so if it is taken out of gear it will not engage again. It didn't do it on my brief test drive, but the seller and his mechanic both describe the same problem. Seller says if truck is on slight incline and can roll just a little bit it will drop into gear, or if shifted into gear immediately after restarting the truck it will engage. My plan is to fuel the truck a few blocks away from the shop and drive it the 4hrs home without taking it out of gear. Any suggestions about what to do if i do get stuck unable to get the truck in gear on the way would be helpful. As the man said, no plan survives first contact with the enemy, lol. The sellers shop 4 hrs away where the truck is told me they contacted Eaton who told them Gen 1 was no longer supported and best course of action was to replace it with a manual. Eaton suggestion to try and fix the Autoshift was to put a harness and XY into it for about a 70% chance of resolving it. Their diagnostic computer wouldn't even recognize the transmission. He has a transmission shop in his area that said they could convert the trans to manual internally with sliders, bearings, etc. for about $300 in parts plus labor. Of course would still need a tower/shifter for the manual. I purchased it at a price reflecting a serious transmission problem, and have a friend who's been a tech at a local Peterbilt dealership for 30 years who will be fixing it. He's told me he has done 12-15 replacements of Gen1 Autoshifts with used manual transmissions due to the ongoing problems with the electronics on them. He feels throwing parts at the Gen 1 would not be a permanent fix as something else, or the same thing, is likely to break again later. He has been very clear that you cannot simply remove the harness, sensors and XY shifter and replace them with a manual tower and shifter, internal parts and clearances are different although the case and design are the same. Usually they have been OTR trucks purchased cheaply and being converted for use as vocational trucks of some sort. My tech says the other option is to replace all of the harness, TCM, XY shifter, etc. with Gen 3 parts thereby upgrading it to a Gen 3 and reprogram the ECM on the engine to be compatible with it. He feels the Gen 3 has proven to be a solid reliable system. Both options appear to be similar in cost, prob $4-6k. I have tried to read everything I can find here and on Google searches about Gen 1 Autoshifts (including that according to Eaton, they have all been field upgraded to at least Gen 1.5) and their problems, although hearing that Eaton was no longer supporting them was a surprise. Any knowledgeable advice regarding the path forward would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. Robert
