    I worked there a few years ago. Truck won't allow you to idle between 31-69 degrees. 30 and below it'll let you idle, 70and above it'll let you idle...

    Had a Volvo, often times I'd waste like 15 minutes hoping that the temperature would touch 70 degrees when it was often 68-69 in socal but still hot af. I'd park it facing the sun so the sensor would get hotter etc... Just a PITA of working for the megas... Get your year and look for greener pastures.
    lexmark Thanks this.

    It's nice to not have to worry about things like this. We don't have to idle, bc trucks runs all the time with teams.
