Freghtliner Cascadia Trucks Dashboard Symbols & Warning Lights
Freghtliner cascadia dashboard symbols and warning lights are used in the dashboard to communicate with the driver about how the truck is performing. It helps them to identify potential problems before they happen.
The main purpose of these symbols is to enable drivers to operate their trucks more efficiently and safely. The symbols are displayed on a digital screen that is mounted on top of the dashboard, so it can be seen by both the driver and passengers in the vehicle.
We will be looking at some of these symbols and what they mean. The warning & indicator lamps illuminate in different colors. These are:-
- Red (danger)
- Amber (caution)
- Green (status advisory)
- Blue (high-beam headlights active).
Below is a table showcasing some of the Freightliner cascadia dashboard symbols and their interpretation.
|This indicates a major problem that necessitates urgent engine stop. If the condition does not improve within 30 to 60 seconds, the engine protection system will limit the maximum engine torque and speed and shut down the engine. As soon as the red light appears, safely bring the vehicle to a halt on the side of the road and turn off the engine. If the engine fails to start when the car is in a dangerous situation, flip the key to the OFF position for a few seconds, then restart the vehicle and relocate it to a safer area.
|High Coolant Temperature
|The coolant temperature is higher than the maximum permissible temperature.
|Low Air Pressure (EPA07)
|Indicates that the primary or secondary reservoir's air pressure has decreased below 70 psi (483 kPa)
|Low Air Pressure (EPA10and Newer)
|Indicates that the primary or secondary reservoir's air pressure has decreased below 70 psi (483 kPa).
|Low Engine Oil Pressure
|The engine oil pressure is below the allowed minimum pressure.
|High transmission temperature.
|Transmission Fluid Level
|Low transmission fluid level implication. Bring the car to a safe halt as soon as reasonably practicable.
|Parking Brake (EPA07)
|If the parking brake is applied or the hydraulic brake fluid pressure is low, this symbol appears. When the car is traveling faster than 2 mph (3 km/h) with the parking brake engaged, an auditory alert sounds.
|Parking Brake (EPA10and Newer)
|Means that the parking brake is engaged.
|Low Battery Voltage
|It alerts you that battery voltage is 11.9 volts or less.
|Unfastened Seat Belt
|When the parking brake is not engaged and the driver seat belt is not tightened, the system activates with an audible alert. Whenever the ignition is first switched on in other vehicles, this lamp shines for 15 seconds.
|Indicates an active fault for the Electronically Controlled Air Suspension (ECAS).
|Indicates that there is a problem with the engine (low oil pressure, low coolant level, high coolant temperature, high DPF soot level, or uncontrolled DPF regeneration). As soon as feasible, correct the situation. The STOP engine lamp will appear if the situation worsens.
|High Exhaust SystemTemperature (HEST)
|A regeneration (regen) is in progress while the light flashes slowly (10 seconds). When the HEST lamp is on, park the vehicle away from flammable materials. When the speed is less than 5 mph (8 km/h), solid illumination shows greater emission temperatures at the tail pipe outlet.
|Diesel Particulate Filter(DPF) Status
|A regen is necessary if the illumination is solid. To elevate exhaust temperatures for at least twenty minutes, switch to a more difficult duty cycle (such as highway driving) or do a parked regen. Blinking means that a parked regen is needed right away. The engine will derate and shut off.
|Malfunction IndicatorLamp (MIL)
|Indicates a problem with emissions. Details can be found in the engine operation manual.
|The car ABS is activated by a brief glow. A problem with the vehicle's ABS is indicated by solid illumination. To ensure full braking capacity, repair the ABS as soon as possible.
|The trailer ABS is activated by a brief light. A malfunction with the trailer ABS is indicated by solid illumination. To ensure full braking capacity, repair the ABS as soon as possible.
|This means the alternator isn't providing enough power to the electrical system.
|Water in Fuel
|This symbol indicates that the fuel may contain water. Remove any water that has accumulated in the fuel/water separators.
|Fuel Filter Restriction
|The gasoline filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.
