Transporter is saying that the truck is saying:

"transmission hot idle engine"
"service 4wheel drive"
"transmission disengaged put in N to engage"


wtf!!?? its a 2008 sierra 3500 diesel w/allison. non-dually. 4x4 SLE with 150k miles.


transporter is saying it wouldnt drive over 40mph either.

Sounds like this should be a good lesson in buying sight unseen.

I don't quite understand. Isn't that what the transporter is supposed to do is transport the truck? If it drives, why can't they drive it on the truck and just drive it to you? Once you get it, you can better assess the situation. If you've already purchased it, there's not much they can do to help you but to get the truck to you, I assume.

I can't tell you much just from those codes I mean if it drives tell him to suck it up and drive it at 40 mph. That's what he's there for. But if it gets worse you might want a tow truck. It might have limped if it's only doing 40.

I assumed you were talking about a major transporter that transports vehicles. In other words, drive it on a ramp with a lot of other vehicles and drive it to you. But you're saying someone is actually driving the vehicle to you? If so, how can that be a transport company?

Not trying to be an azz, just trying to understand.

Obviously someone is driving the truck to him. He needs help on what the problem is, not someone to ask questions on whos driving it...not tryin to b an ass myself, but he wants help.

EXACTLY. damn.

i got a guy attempting to drive it from vegas to DC area. He sent me those dash board messages yesterday and is waiting to see what I want him to do. He is in vegas right now waiting on me.

i love GM trucks and have always had gas ones. this is my first 3500 diesel and Im excited about it but dont know much about how they work, etc etc. but im trying to learn

he got those messages and said that ONE of the batteries is very low and wont take charge ... maybe that's the problem? he said it wont go over 40mph and wont shift or some shit. ... just need to know if anyone knows what those messages means and any info on what happens if ONE of the 2 batteries is low or needs replaced

Replace both batteries if you are.

We need codes. tell the guy to buy a cheap code reader and get us the engine codes. Then we can tell you exactly what is wrong.

Does the Trans overheat come on if the truck is cooled off?
