  1. Battery was fully charged. Key FOB recognition issue I tried disconnecting shift linkage at transmission but was unable to shift out of park, it appears there is a electronically controlled internal trans release
  2. This is a new venture with a friend. If anybody needs anything moved within 100 air miles of NJ (NYC PA CONN. MA Etc) I will be driving. You can message or call me at 201-696-6692 Steve
  3. Who manufactures that rotator? Looks like a 16t Holmes?
  4. Only needed to go 70 miles into NY.
  5. Anybody aware of ANY contract stating tow truck is required to provide passenger transportation?
  6. If you have a DOT# and/or MC# { which is required if you are interstate). All FMSCA regulations apply. You can be ticketed without passenger authorization paperwork(personal information etc.) & proper passenger insurance on your commercial insurance policy Odds are nothing will happen until a serious accident occurs & insurance refuses to pay. Owner will be held responsible, fined & sued. There is specific insurance for livery, cab etc that has nothing to do with commercial trucks
  7. 1- transmission slipping, 2- reduced engine power(diesel regen issue)
  8. Check out FMSCA 49 CDR 392.60 Unauthorized persons not to be transported Rider policy would be required on your commercial truck insurance
  9. Appreciate the responses. Purchasing a tow truck is not difficult. Dealer can provide you with chassis & body specs if truck is or will be built. When I stated educated buyer, I meant someone who would call chassis dealer & provide specs. I found new cab & chassis price varies slightly. Next, call tow truck body dealer with specs, ask for quote installed. Might be in for a surprise If you think dealer has tight margins. Let’s not forget Dealer incentives, discounts, etc.
  10. Very common problem with 1000 series transmissions is PRNDL switch. Bolts directly behind shift lever, inexpensive & simple repair. Be sure to clean & de burr shifter shaft before installing new switch.
  11. Perform logic lock. Be sure to disconnect both batteries pos & neg. Touch positve cable to negative cable. Logic lock has to be performed even after clearing codes with scanner, sometimes
