Technical Support / Re: Flash code retrieval
« Last post by Mike Shumack on Today at 11:14:37 PM »
How are you connecting your scanner to the coach - is this scnner just connected when you want to read codes, or do you leave it connected all the time? I googled KZYEE scanner and it appears to be of lower quality (made in China stuff) than the brand name tools. However I don't know this product so maybe I'm wrong. It's those cheapo scanners that Dave warns about.

I use a ScanGauge D (which I can confirm works fine with the C13).

The engine ECM does read the brake light signal. That is how it knows to disengage cruise when you step on the brake or to activate the Jake brake.

A few updates:
I contacted the manufacuture of my code reader (KZYEE 620). They responded with the following
I have checked with the technician, and he said, there is something wrong with your brake light switch, the signal of the CAN network is erratic, which is because of the unstable plug-in of the CAN network.
You may need to get in checked and repaired on the repair shop.
FYI, it is normal that different codes show the same fault.
That's what we got so far, hope this helps.
Further question, feel free to ask."

Did not think the brake light switch was controlled by the engine but I dont know.

Secondly I contacted VIP the maker of the Smartwheel. They said the "set" signal out of their controller stalys on as long as the "set" button is being depressed. I will check furthe but as we are getting ready to travel it will not be for a few days.

Hope thus helps somebody.

You could have a dirty or bad switch in the multiplex pad. You can remove the switch cover to check.,6433.msg46893.html#msg46893

Lot of added info on Forum. Do a search on "multiplex".

Let me add my vote for the SeeLevel system.  Had it installed in Gillette last year and it is accurate and convenient. I get a readout on my iPhone as well as the replacement display in the bay.  Love it.

Thanks Bill and Fred.  My curtain is controlled by a multiplex switch.  If I understand this system, some of the multiplex switches control things like the lights through the PCM, while others directly operate relays for electrical items that have regular fuses in the 12 fuse distribution panel.  Am I correct here?

In any event, I have checked every fuse I can find, and my fans are all working, so I must have other problems.  There is no voltage at the wires that the curtain plugs in to.

Another consideration is the wiper command on the smart wheel. I am not sure on your model but on mine, if you turn on the wipers while driving, it automatically turns on your headlights. You can cancel that command by manually turning on the headlights at the dash switch then off. Have you tried cleaning the "clock spring" under the steering wheel?

Mine is in the 12 volt panel box in the rear bedroom closet. Good luck.

Becoming clear. I have the smart wheel schematic for this particular smart wheel.
SWC2 is the J2 connector on the smart wheel controller. It has nine pins of which number six which is headlamps out. This wire feeds the coil on RLHL which is also RLll. This wire is marked 76 VIP Headlts out and goes from SWC2-6 to VCE on the pub. I have 12v at SMC2 pin 6 and have 0 at pin 86 on RLll.
Tomorrow I’ll on that wire.

Bob, on my Patriot, I would check for voltage at the switch, which in my case is in a cabinet above drivers head.
My '05 PT manual says the power curtain is fused with the fantastic fans on fuse #8. I'm sure your Marquis is different from my PT.
SWC -2 is a connector; Smart Wheel Connector pin 2. When you refer to R11, I assume you are referring to the head light relay. If you don't have power on pin 86, either you've got a bad connection at SWC-2 or the relay being fed by the VIP controller is not functioning. If you've got 12V on pin 1 and gnd on pin 2, the relay should be activated. Then check for 12v on pin 3 and 4.
