Thanks! However, I think the truck is just a P.O.S.!!
We purchased a new ECM for mega $$$$ and the truck started right up. Then after 2 weeks, same thing. ECM went bad AGAIN! So, now they wouldn't just exchange the ECM. They had to send it off to get looked at to see if the problem is the ECM or if it's the truck that is making the ECM go bad. Twice the same thing... I think it's the truck. I'm totally lost here. They said I can buy another ECM and if they find out that there was a problem with the other one, then they will reimburse me the money. Or I can just wait 90 days for them to figure it out. I'm just going to fix it and get rid of it. I just bought another work truck. I've completely given up on this Sprinter Van.
#58 of 76 International dt570 fire truck

I have and 07 International Dt570 with air over hydraulics that i am working on. The problem is that i dont have brake lights. now keep in mind that this is a fire truck and nothing is easy to find on these trucks. I found the brake 12v wire running to the lights and put 12v to it and the brakes work. telling me the that the wires are good from there back. Checked all the relays and fuses. all good. Now i cant trace the wires back from the point that i tested from because it runs into a huge wire loom that has all the wires for lights and sirens. that is a box of monkeys that i just dont want to open. Now i believe it may be a possible brake switch problem, but finding that is almost caused me to go crazy... or atleast closer to it. if someone would point me in the right direction i would be in your debt.. thanks

The plastic step has several little square plugs that are hiding the torx head bolts that retain the step to the body. Look closely in the tread and you will see the outline of the square plug. Take a sharp ice pick or other thin blade tool and tap it into the seam, you can pry these up they just snap in. Remove the screws underneath and the step will come right up. There is one screw near the front that is not in the tread it is hidden by a round plug. You will see it if you look.

#61 of 76 Electrical system question
Nov 11, 2009 (8:10 pm)
I am replacing the oem horn on 2005-06 2500 Dodge sprinter and the replacement has a relay. I can't find a relay in line for the original but don't want to install two relays. Does the original have a relay for the horn? Thanks.
Nov 12, 2009 (4:29 am)
When I replaced mine. I used the orginal horn circuit to activate the new horn's
relay and then ran a direct fused line to the battery to supply current for the
horn. This avoided having to mess with the truck wiring and allows the orginal
horn to be replaced if necessary.

#64 of 76 Sprinter's Ignition Key Won't Turn.
Dec 08, 2009 (9:33 pm)
Ignition won't turn so no crank or start. Tried:removed battery & charged it. Boosted jump post & battery. tried turn harder, foot on brake & e-brake on, use spare key & invert it. tried different battery. Only once was able to get out of park & put in neutral, put back in park but won't come out as key locked in off position. Ripped off driveshaft & dragged into garage from frigid outdoors-steering locked also. haedlights are bright & when hooked on a new battery, a fair amount of sparking is present neg cable hookup. Any Help ??

thanks for the advice...I wired my new horn just as you describe and I can now hold up my head with the big boys. The factory one was a wus.
