Eaton Fuller Hybrid Transmission Fault Code 128 – APG Unit 1 Ambient Air Temperature Sensor
Fault code for Eaton Hybrid Drive Systems models (MY08) EH-8E306A-U, EH-8E306A-UPG, EH-8E306A-UP, EH-8E306A-CD, EH-8E306A-T and EH-6E606B-CD. 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 DC/DC Converter is connected to the Power Electronics Carrier (PEC), which provides 340 volts DC. The voltage is reduced to 12-volts DC and maintains the 12-volt system during engine off PTO operation. The DC/DC maintains a steady 14.2 (±0.2) (MY08 Systems) or 12.6 (MY09 System) volts output and increases the amperage with vehicle demand up to 1.5 kw or 120 amps.
Fault Code 128 – APG Unit 1 Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Detection
The following preconditions must be met before the system detects the fault:
- Hybrid Control Module (HCM) 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 3 is set when the Ambient Air Temperature Sensor has been detected out of range.
Fallback When Fault Code 54 is set the following conditions occur:
- Amber “Check Hybrid” light illuminates.
- Fault is stored in Hybrid Control Module (HCM) memory.
- APG shuts down and attempts a restart after 30 seconds.
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 3
- Faulty sensor
