    Got a 2022 t880, and a new question.
    Do these trucks have diff lock indicator lights?
    I tried to use it yesterday and no lights came on, and it did not work. Both switches on and still one wheel peel.
    My 2020 had them.

    Can’t answer your direct question but the last two ordered trucks I bought. Peterbilts. I know the set up crew had to turn on or enable certain items
    On one truck they forgot to do that on a few things and until we figured it out we were chasing a non existent ghost

    What Gypsy65 said - if there’s no light on the dash it could just be a dummy switch
    6x2 instead of a 6x4 - easiest way to check see if there’s a driveshaft connecting the axle

    Trucks were ordered with diff and interaxle locks.
    This one has no power going to cb either.
    Plus it looses 75 lbs air in 12 hours overnight
     
    Cat sdp and KB3MMX Thank this.

    Sounds similar to our previous nightmare experience with PACCAR, they just slap them together and send it

    We waited over 2 years for these truck to be built after ordering them due to the scamdemic

    I still think it’s a setting that’s not turned on from the pre delivery people

    Air leaks. It’s all plastic and just a thing

    6 freaking hours and all they could tell me was there was a blown fuse in the fuse box.
    nothing was fixed because the chassis number is not coming up in the computer so they do not know how the computer is programed to change the settings.

    although the guy that brought the truck out of the shop told me he "thinks" the diff and interaxle locks are not working because the air dump is engaged. he told me to try filling the air bags before using them.
    which makes no sense because i turn pto off and wait for the truck to raise 3-4 inches before moving away from the paver.
     
    GYPSY65 Thanks this.
