Using Meritor PC Diagnostics, check the diagonal voltages with the engine running at governed speed, or measure the voltage at the batteries with the engine running at governed speed. Voltage is 9.5 to 14 volts Check for intermittent sources of high voltage. Check condition of charging system and batteries. Verify fault.
Voltage is greater than 14 volts. Check charging system. Repair as necessary.

136 253 01 ATC configuration error

NOTE: ATC valve is detected without engine datalink (J1939).

Check J1939 for proper wiring. Check engine ECU for communication. Repair as necessary, then reconfigure ECU.
136 253 02 ABS

configuration/ wheel parameter incorrect.

Reconfigure ECU. If fault repeats then the wrong ECU is installed. Replace with the correct ECU.

Recirculation pump on without being activated by ECU

NOTE: In this case the ECU is sensing voltage on the pump monitor circuit (Pin 10 of the black X2 connector) when the pump relay was not activated by the ECU (Pin 6 of the black X2 connector).

1. Remove the black X2 connector from the ECU. With the ignition ON, measure the voltage between Pin 10 and a good chassis ground.  

Voltage zero

Check the ECU and verify the fault.
Voltage not zero Go to Test 2.

Recirculation pump does not switch on when activated by the ECU

NOTE: In this case the ECU does not sense voltage on the pump monitor circuit (Pin 10 of the black X2 ECU connector) when the pump relay was activated by the ECU (Pin 6 of the black X2 ECU connector).

 

3. Remove the black X2 connector from the ECU. With the ignition ON, link Pins 6 and 3 while measuring the voltage between Pin 10 and a good chassis ground. The pump should run (do not hold for more than 1 minute).

 

 

Voltage between

9.5 and 14 volts

 

Check for intermittent connections in Circuit 376B and check the ABS pump relay for intermittent operation. Repair as necessary.

 

Voltage below

Recirculation pump sticks or is locked

NOTE: In this case, the ECU senses high current on the pump monitor circuit (Pin 10 of the black X2 ECU connector) indicating the pump motor is locked.

 

4. Remove the black X2 connector from the ECU. With the ignition ON, momentarily link Pins 6 and 3. The pump should run (do not hold for more than 1 minute).

 

Pump runs

 

Repeat the test to verify. If the fault persists, suspect a problem with the ECU.

 

Pump does not run

 

Replace the recirculation pump.
