I too have had the check engine light, light up briefly, very intermittent. I have had the Cummins people check for codes twice, with none being logged.

Mine usually happened after a long highway run, then onto city streets, stopped at a light it would come on, and go out when moving again. Mine's a Cummins ISC 350 w/ a Banks kit.

So far it is just a mystery.

Glad your airbags came up again, btw.

Mc Duff and some of you other guys. Check your coolant expansion tank levels. I had a similar issue with intermitant engine light going on and off. It ended up being the level in the coolant tank. There is a low level sensor in the coolant tank.......

I wonder if chassis feedback from low or no air in bags reads on the engine's computer as abnormal combustion. I don't know of any sensor for diesel ignition per say, but the ECU does make a calculation for torque provide, and perhaps jack hammering back thru the drive train farts up the speed sensor input to mess up such calculations and set the MIL?

Coolant level is fine. The coach is scheduled to go to the shop on Wednesday, the 17th of February, for a couple of items, one of which is the intermittent "check Engine" display. I'll report the results. Joe

Are you sure it was the check engine light or low air light, both on the same panel. I have had this situation where the synchronization gets screwed up the the levelers (and yes, it will toss you out of the seat) and the airbag dump valve never closes, you can hear it if you know what you're listening for when the engine is running).

Start the engine and do a full leveling cycle. If that (hopefully) works, do a stow and see if things behave.

The dash readout shows the red outline of an engine with the words, "check engine". The problem with the air bags turned out to be my fault for being impatient and attempting to drive without giving the air system a minute or two to fill up. Joe

The dash message "check engine" turned out to be caused by a bad relay. Relay replaced. So it was not a big problem and no damage was done. Joe

Wow. Sorry you had all that trouble Azloafer and it wrecked your maiden voyage but don't you just love a solution that doesn't cost you big money?

Our maiden voyage included the STOP ENGINE light coming on while going up the Grapevine near LA. Got it towed 40 miles back to Bakersfield and waited 5 hours for the guys in the Cummins shop to get to it. Found out is was a little low on coolant!

Arg!

But, we got back on the road and nothing like that has happened since.

Happy travels in your new coach.
