THE BUS MOVES
 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

I have GEARS,,,, All of THEM !!!!!!! Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

I've only moved it up on boards, so I could drain a little fluid from the transmission.  Guess WHAT.... It's wasn't the ECU.  I wanted to continue checking out the wiring before plugging in the $800.00, plus two overnight shipping,  either the 221 or the 220 wire corrected the problem.

Still have some fine tuning,,,,the ECU is still flashing the 21 code, the TPS code.  Will play with that tomorrow, weather permitting.  Will take her around the park, if all goes well, for a little ride down the beach tomorrow.

It's not done,,, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

<<<<O ROLLING OO<< Very cool that Cat was able to direct the repairs!    Grin
What's the 221/220 wire?  I don't have immediate access to the magnifying instrument that I use to read the little print.  Sad
You know, the ECM may still have issues.  I'd bet the return rate is high on ECMs suffering from 'multiple diagnosis"...?
Really glad to hear that it works.
BTW, you may have the TPS misadjusted...or, the TPS is faulty (yeah, the new one), or the ECM takes a few runs to 'calibrate' to the TPS.   Verify that the TPS isn't moving beyond it's range in either direction.  Sammy can tell you how.
Having that bus moving under it's own power is one way to spell RELIEF!!  Gads man.  Fine job sorting that thing out in the winter! 
    DA  BUS  MOOVES!    Grin Cheesy Smiley Roll EyesBill, if you ever find yourself up our way, Charlotte, NC, you got a personal invite to drop anchor!  We'll pop a couple cool ones....and then Cat can work on our bus!!   Grin Roll Eyes Cool
Cat, ya'll come'on down  the next time you want to stretch that bus a little.  I got an idea....Fayetteville in May, weekend after Mothers Day, party at Wade KOA.  All buses welcome.  Ya'll oughta come on up.  It'll be about time to move...get here early and I'll take care of your parking.  And I don't mind you working on it down by the barn dude.and dudette!  Cat offers management skills!  Shocked  Gitrdone Cat!

JR,

The 220 connects the Shift Selector pin 5 to ECU J2 terminal H.  It is the SS8

The 221 connects the Shift Selector pin 3 to ECU J2 terminal J.  It is the SS2.

As soon as the weather gets a little better, I'm going to go through the set up for the TPS.

Thank you for the invite, you never know when and where I may show up.  Presently looking forward to starting the new job in St. Pete.  If you get down to Florida, let me know.

Bill

Bill,

I just wonder how many Nuts are putting their sleep meds back in the medicine cabnet about now.  Really glad you got this thing on a "down hill drag" at last.  Happy hunting with the remaining gremlins and KEEP US POSTED.

My very best wishes.

Man, what a thread this became, and it showed what the bus community is all about. The best minds, and the best bus doctors, that money could buy. Everyone, and his mother was trying to help solve the problem of a busnut and his stricken bus. I could even picture in my mind the bus on it's top upside down, with all the busnut doctors around it in their white mechanic's coats yelling out "WRENCH, CLAMPS, SCREW DRIVER, STREIGHT 40WT RINGERS LACTATE STAT", and all of us above the operating room looking down on the operation through the big windows of the web, wondering is this bus going to make it. I know many have watched this with quite a bit of interest and great concern. This is a great example of what makes this site the best bus site on the web. Each and everyone who tried to help deserve a great "Atta Boy"

one of the most interesting things is it shows that with electronics the "stated problem" or code may not be the issue. in this case the TPI circuit is tied into several other things and one can aggravate the other sending you on a wild chase. I think everyone learned a little throughout this thread on how to trouble shoot some of this stuff and to be really thorough in tracking wires and circuits.
glad to see it all worked out as I am sure we could all hear the sigh of relief when it shifted.

The Bus Drives,,, The Bus Drives,,,, The Bus Drives,,,,,   Grin


The problem started Nov 18.  Two months, two days, hours and hours, later,,,, it's fixed. Can't believe this thread has been read 4100 times. 

Went and fueled up  $3.09 a gallon.  Drove it down the interstate for 10 miles.  Wow! Did that feel good.  Looks like I will be able to head to Fred's in Madison, Florida the end of next week.

I adjusted the TPI, need to double check it.  Thought the code had vanished,,, but not so. Believe this is minor.

Thanks to all the busnuts that help me,,, even in the little ways,,,, to help me keep going and not give up.  Thanks to Dallas for coming down to the coast for a week to help for three days.  Thanks to NJ boys and others for all their inputs.  Always gave me something to look up, or at least think about this and that.

Most of all, thank you Sammy   Grin, you folks would not believe how many phone calls between us.  Nights, mornings weekends,,, some from Sammy just to make sure I was hanging in there,  to keep me going.  I know Sammy spent hours of his own time, studying schematics and manual to see which he should send me.  Not only have I fixed a bus, but feel like I have gained a friend.  Thank you Sammy.

As most of you know,,, I start a new job Feb 4th in St. Petersburg, Florida.  I have been a full timer since the day I bought the bus, in Oct 2006.  Once I reach Florida I will start using the bus for weekend trips.  Looking forward to staying close to home and hitting many of the state parks around Florida.  Jack,,, plan to show up your way one weekend.


Thanks again,

Bill    Grin
