ABF Freightliner idle shutdown bypass? Messages: 56 Likes Received: I searched the internet forum boards and youtube, and have seen several instances where guys have come up with solutions to keep the truck idling. The problem is that there are too many variations that work on specific models, but as of yet I haven't found one that works on our trucks.
Has anyone come up with a solution, or is it a programming issue that cannot be bypassed? TrailbossSep 30, Messages: 18, Likes Received: 11, I would not even go there and I would not recommend that you or anyone else go there either. That is one way to lose your job.

I got trapped a couple of years ago in Wyoming in a chain up areasat there for 10 hours in a mack. Kept it idling and wasn't a big deal. Just a little boring.

Moreover, the system remains off even after the hood is closed, effectively disabling the system from functioning until the next key cycle. To take advantage of the workaround, one would need to pop the hood before starting the vehiclestart the car with the hood open, and then shut the hood. This prevents the engine auto-stop-start system from operating while guaranteeing that the pesky open hood indicator light disappears with the rest of the warnings that flicker to life upon starting a vehicle with an open hood.
Is this an end-all solution to disabling the engine auto-stop-start system? Of course not. Opening the hood every time you start the car sounds rather laborious.
Anthony Alaniz was a GM Authority contributor between from thru Try it; leave your hood open and use the key-fob to remote start, or use remote start and then open your hood before turning the ignition on. The engine will either not start at all, or shut off every time. Its more to prevent someone from auto-starting the car by accident while their fingers are poking around the engine compartment really.

Opus is right. But you can try releasing the tractor brakes with the trailer brakes set, or bumping up the idle with the cruise control. That's all I got. Tb0n3Omega1 and motocross25 Thank this. May 20, 4. Change companies.On-highway truck drivers demanded more of their on-highway truck.

Idle Shutoff Override? 2017 Freight Cascadia
The Cascadia day cab options are designed for safety and functionality. Gauges are integrated with the instrument cluster and operated from simple controls on the steering wheel.
Large, comfortable seats, a powerful HVAC system with six dash-mounted vents and adjustable-tilt telescoping steering increase cab comfort. There are also new refrigerator options and improved storage spaces that include shelving. A swing-out TV bracket accepts a inch flat-panel television; ambient lighting options and increased power outlets for added convenience.
The downsped, HP DD13 efficiently powers less-than-truckload, regional distribution and vocational applications. A great engine choice for the Cascadia, the DD13 features the longest service intervals in its class, with easy serviceability. The downsped, high-performance, HP DD15 engine is a great choice to power your custom Freightliner Cascadia, with a lb-ft rating, and greater horsepower and torque at lower RPMs.

The best shift patterns are selected electronically for optimal power and fuel efficiency. In the Cascadia, the DT12 transmission uses IPM to pinpoint the truck's location and looks more than a mile ahead to anticipate terrain, adjusting cruise control, pre-selecting gears, using eCoast and engine-braking to maximize efficiency.Discussion in ' Freightliner Forum ' started by FztroutNov 13, Log in or Sign up.

Mine is the same system they had back in trucks. I had it on my S60 Detroit same thermostat in sleeper. It not the most accurate temperature but it work pretty good. It would be nice if the next generation is better. I had Tripac on one truck and it was nice but lots of repairs so not so cheap to operate. Then I had Opti ilde on my S60 Detroit it was trouble free system and only replaced the engine starter one time at likemiles.
BrandtNov 13, Nov 14, RocketyManNov 14, Nov 17, Well a new development has occurred. I still haven't been able to get it into option idle doing the way told so I'm sure it does not have it. The new development though is that last night I had my foot just enough on the throttle to not raise the rpm while watching a movie on my laptop but it triggered the system to not shut down or pop the message up.
Well I was like that for about IDK 30 or 40 min and then I took my foot off because I was going to head to bed and the truck shutting down was going to be my que to go to bed Well it didn't shut down in fact 5 or so min later the idle spiked by itself and started idling really rough.
And it did not enter Regen mode for the def. It freaked me out so I just shut the truck off. The truck has never stayed idling above or below this temp but this morning my co-driver started the truck to warm it up and it actually stayed idling by itself and I didn't do anything and she said she didn't do anything.
Almost as if the engine brake was on or something but it wasn't. But it wasn't so she tapped the gas and it stopped But we are going to Laredo tx again this week so I guess we'll see if it was a fluke or not.
