||AUTO PARKED – Please help. 2002 R-Vision Condor, 8.1 Vortec engine. Auto Park system uses Relay Logic, not the TYCO ECM module. I am at home 130 miles from my M/H facing the unnecessary cost of dropping the drive shaft and towing – somewhere I can pay the mechanic to learn about this system.
PROBLEM: Fuse 11 (15A fuse in Chassis Fuse Block at drivers left knee) blows the instant ignition is turned on. Brake buzzer sounds for 5 seconds then goes off. Brake Warning light stays on. Yellow Pull to Apply Switch does nothing. Gear selector will not shift the transmission into any gear. With the engine running and shifting through the gears, the vehicle will not move.
WHAT I KNOW: The pump motor runs when I remove connector and apply 12 V to the motor. The D-III reservoir looks low to me, about 1/2 full – I see no full mark.
The W/H Chassis Guide does not reflect this model accurately. The electrical information is incomplete at best. I clearly understand the concept and intent of this ‘safety’ system. It is rather simple in concept, obtuse in mechanization.
MY DELEMA: As a retired EE and a Ham Radio operator for over 50 years I am baffled by the locations of components and routing of wiring. I cannot find the physical location of the ‘Park/Neutral Position Relay’ although W/H assures me it is on the wall left of the left valve cover. I see no frayed or burnt wiring and with 36K miles on the odometer it is not dirty.
MY QUESTION: If I can find this actuator emergency ‘pin’ and remove it, will some sensor in or around the actuator tell the transmission all is well? I understand why the normal transmission Park Pall is not present.
If releasing the actuator by removing the pin will not restore gear shifting, what will?
I will post an accurate schematic and part location for this model on my website when my M/H comes back home.
