Equipment Problems
  1. My wiper motor does not work or turn.

    If your wiper motor does not work or turn test it with a battery charger before removing it from the cab. Check the ground connections, including the grounding of the cab to the chassis. This could save a lot of time rather than sending it back as a faulty part.

  2. My heater is not warming up, what's wrong?

    The most common cause is forgetting to remove black rubber plugs from the heater core tubing. These are in place to prevent debris from entering the heater core during storage and transportation.

    Another possible cause of this problem is an "air lock". Try to bleed the air out of the lines.

    Another possible cause is a pinched hose. Trace all the hoses to ensure this is not occurring.

    Another possible cause is that the hose splice is on the wrong side of the water pump. This problem dissipates once the thermostat has opened. Due to how the cooling system is configured on some engines, this problem can be easily remedied or not - refer to the standard heater hook-up diagram in the following link.

    Lastly, ensure the engine has come up to temperature.

  3. The heater does not blow heat, what's wrong?

    Make sure that the fan is attached to the motor, the wiring is proper, and the fuse is good (20 Amps). Proper wiring procedures include connecting the power to the "B" terminal of the switch, connecting the orange wire to the "H" terminal, and connecting the red wire to the "L" terminal (with the body grounded).

  4. The heater is leaking, what's wrong?

    Check to ensure that all of the clamps and fittings are securely fastened. If leaking continues, the core may be damaged, which is covered by a one-year warranty.
