Eaton Fuller Hybrid Transmission Fault Code 127 – APG Unit 1 Ambient Air Over Temperature
Fault code for Eaton Hybrid Drive Systems models (MY08) EH-8E306A-U, EH-8E306A-UPG, EH-8E306A-UP, EH-8E306A-CD, EH-8E306A-T, EH-6E606B-CD, (MY09) EH-8E406A-U/P, EH-8E406A-UP, EH-8E406A-UPG, EH-8E406A-CD, EH-8E406A-CDG, EH-8E406A-CDR, EH-8E406A-T, EH-6E706B-CD, EH-6E706B-P and EH-6E706B-UPG. Read below to learn how to test, clear and fix fault code errors for your Freightliner, Mack, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Volvo, International, and heavy-duty truck and equipment. The Auxiliary Power Generator (APG) is a 5kW/5kVA DC/AC Inverter that is connected to the high voltage DC bus of the Eaton Hybrid electric vehicle system, and generates 60 Hz single-phase 120-volt AC power for utility applications. The ambient air temperature is measured with an internal sensor and sets a fault when the temperature reaches 140 °F (60 °C).
Fault Code 127 – APG Unit 1 Ambient Air Over Temperature Detection
The following preconditions must be met before the system detects the fault:
- HCM is powered and ignition voltage is greater than 7 volts and less than 16 volts.
Note: When troubleshooting an Inactive code refer to the Product Diagnostic Mode (PDM)
Conditions to Set Fault Code Active
- FMI 0 is set when the ambient temperature inside of the APG Inverter case reaches 140 °F (60 °C).
Fallback When Fault Code 127 is set the following conditions occur:
- Amber “Check Hybrid” light illuminates.
- Fault is stored in Hybrid Control Module (HCM) memory.
- The APG powers down.
Conditions to Set Fault Code Inactive
Only Inactive faults can be cleared from the Transmission Electronic Control Unit (TECU) or HCM history using ServiceRanger. The TECU automatically clears the faults from history after 200 hours and the HCM automatically clears the faults from history after the fault has been Inactive for 200 hours.
This fault code can be caused by any of the following:
- FMI 0
- Faulty Sensor
- Ambient case temperature too high
