    Last week got a check engine light. Pulled the codes out the keeptruckin app and see 3 codes all having to do with the Particulate Matter Sensor (part# 68352149AB). I have searched all over the web and called 6 or 7 dealers and no one has it in stock and they can't find any dealer across the country that has one either.

    Any tips on where or how to get the sensor?
    I'm still running the truck, hope I am not causing any extra damage to the DEF system by doing so.

    Not only that but came to the truck at the start of last week and a tiny chip in the glass that has been there for almost 2 years turned into a crack that went across the windshield side to side :mad: $625 oem windshield installed. Would have been half the price if I didn't have all my fancy tech sensors on the mirror.

    Wow 24, you are a cyber trucker. What type of tech sensors do you have on the mirror ? I never thought about pulling codes thru the ELD , I need to check out my KeepTrucking app. for that intel.

    I have automated high beams, active collision mitigation (saved my butt once), rain sensors and adaptive cruise control.

    On the keeptruckin dashboard go to "Reports" tab and look for "Fault codes".

    A week , no sense of urgency. Does not instill confidence. She was surprised when I told her what your premiums were. Seems to me if she was able to help she would be right on it.

    All the insurance brokers just keep going to Progressive for quotes. I need to find an insurance broker that works with other insurance companies. What's funny is that every broker gets the exact same information, gets a quote with progressive and comes back with a different price... Frustrating.

    Well that is why I was hoping she could shed some other information. She has been doing commercial truck since she started. At first she covered thru National Indemnity, then Berkshire Hathaway, I got a cold call from agent who told me about Canal Insurance and was able to save some more. Now Progressive gave me a Quote about $2000 less than Canal per year and all agents go to them for a quote. I choose not to do business with them. The hotshot industry has caused these starting rates to be so high IMHO because of accidents from new numbers. Progressive is new to the trucking industry. I remember when they came in and had a lot of claims from Hotshot startups. I have seen where they have raised their rates after small things where the operators could not afford the increases .

    They are looking at their profit IMO. Progressive will give the agents the same numbers.
