New light on the dash.  Until it builds air, along with the typical "low tag air", "no gen", now I have a new light that just started coming on..... "Starter Alert"

What's that?

Like your tag line.  Guess I will have to keep my brakes working.  Can't increase horn, already have a train horn that will wake the dead.  Shocked

If you bus was originally a New Jersey Transit bus I have heard that they came with air starters originally.  It may be a low air sensor for the air starter come back to life to haunt you...   Shocked

Luvrbus, you nailed it again.  Switch in rear position.  Not sure how it started, by the time I looked back there the guys were already flipping switches.  I never would have guessed.

Thanks
