Summary of teach-in and operating faults (only shown on green instrument panel display)

Note
The following fault numbers are only displayed by the EPS (GS) system for a short time in the green matrix, without a system abbreviation, when system or
operating faults occur. They are not stored.
Display
Fault number
EPS 01

Emergency shift not in original position

EPS 02

Emergency shift active

EPS 03

No gear display possible

Perform EPS (GS) troubleshooting, and rectify fault if necessary.


Check travel sensor taught-in and actual values (compare).

EPS 04

No emergency shift possible

Check power supply to emergency shift (U not) with BW04/4:


00 00 00 00 (U not not present), check fuse F29 on base module.
01 00 00 00 (U not present)

EPS 10

Split distance teach-in fault

The distance between the slow split and fast split travel (in counts) is too small.
Compare EPS (GS) MW16 and MW17 measurements with MW11 (operate split
switch).
1. Check that electrical connectors on split dual solenoid valve (Y29 and Y30) are
properly connected (MS1 and MS2 may be the wrong way round).
2. Check split travel sensor (B62) for mechanical (stiff tappet) or electrical fault
(connection corroded).
3. Mechanical defect in transmission (range change box).

Fault number

Meaning

Cause/remedy
Put emergency shift in original position, check sensor unit with BW 03/2 :
11 11 00 11 (Emergency shift not in original position)
11 11 01 11 (Emergency shift in original position)
Perform EPS (GS) troubleshooting, rectify fault and switch off emergency shift.

Cause/remedy
The distance (in counts) between the gear 1/3 shifting shaft position (1/4 in the
G260) and the neutral position is too great.
Compare EPS (GS) measurements MW18 and MW19 to MW12 (operate shift
stick).
1. After repair work, check the electrical connections on the vent gear dual (Y37
and Y38) and ventilate gear (Y35 and Y36) dual solenoid valves for correct
connection.
2. Check gear travel sensor (B60) for mechanical (stiff tappet) or electrical fault
(connection corroded).
3. Mechanical defect in transmission.
The distance (in counts) between the 2/4/R gear (2/3/R in the G260) and the
neutral position travel values is too small.
Compare EPS (GS) measurements MW20 and MW19 to MW11 (operate shift
stick).
See fault no. 11 remedy 1. to 3.
The distance (in counts) between the spring-arrested gate shift shaft travel position
1/3 (1/4 in the G260) and reverse is too small.
Compare EPS (GS) measurements MW21 and MW22 to MW13 (operate shift
stick).
1. Check that electrical connectors on gate dual solenoid valve (Y33 and Y34) are
properly connected (MG1 and MG2 may be the wrong way round).
2. Check gate travel sensor (B61) for mechanical (stiff tappet) or electrical fault
(connection corroded).
3. Mechanical defect in transmission (spring arresting).
The distance (in counts) between the spring-arrested gate shift shaft travel position
1/3 (1/4 in the G260) and gate 2/4 (2/3 in the G260) is too small.
Compare EPS (GS) measurements MW23 and MW22 to MW13 (operate shift
stick).
See fault no. 13 for remedy 1. to 3.

Cause/remedy

EPS 17

Range distance teach-in fault

The distance (in counts) between the range slow and range fast travel values is
too small.
Compare EPS (GS) measurements MW25 and MW26 to MW14 (perform test drive
and operate shift stick / range fast not selected when vehicle stationary).
1. Check that electrical connectors on gate dual solenoid valve (Y31 and Y32) are
properly connected (MR1 and MR2 may be the wrong way round).
2. Check gate travel sensor (B63) for mechanical (stiff tappet) or electrical fault
(connection corroded).
3. Mechanical defect in transmission (output box).

EPS 18

Solenoid valve or travel sensor fault during teach-in


procedure

EPS 19

Vehicle moving teach-in fault

EPS 20

Undervoltage teach-in fault

EPS 21

Clutch operation teach-in fault

Perform EPS (GS) troubleshooting and rectify faults if necessary.


If there is an EPS (GS) system in the ACTROS, no fault codes are deleted by
the teach-in procedure.
Some solenoid valve codes are only up to date when activated (shifting
procedure).
During the teach-in procedure, v pulses have been detected by the EPS (GS)
control module.
1. Operate parking brake.
2. If the fault occurs when the vehicle is stationary, check rpm sensor for
erroneous pulses.
1. If the low voltage symbol appears on the instrument cluster, charge or replace
battery.
2. If no low voltage is indicated on the instrument cluster, check EPS (GS) control
module power supply at X1.9/7 and 9/8 (only possible using HHT, actual value 54
or measuring device).
During the teach-in procedure, the clutch pedal was operated or released too soon
or too late (pay attention to buzzer).

EPS 22

Neutral selection aborted teach-in fault

Display
Fault number

Meaning

EPS 23

Transmission type invalid teach-in fault

EPS 24

Parking brake not operated teach-in fault

The neutral position knob must be permanently activated during the teach-in
procedure.
Cause/remedy
During the small teach-in procedure, a transmission type has to be already stored
in the EPS (GS) control module. Perform large teach-in procedure or set correct
transmission type parameter.
The parking brake must be on during the teach-in procedure.
If the fault occurs with the parking brake on, perform FMR (FR) troubleshooting
and rectify fault if necessary.

EPS 25

Emergency shift operated teach-in fault

The emergency shift may not be operated during the teach-in procedure.

EPS 26

Engine running teach-in fault

EPS 27

Engine torque invalid/missing teach-in fault

During the small teach-in procedure, the engine may not be started.
During the large teach-in procedure, start engine when neutral indicator blinks.
Perform FMR (FR) and PLD (MR) troubleshooting and rectify fault if necessary.

EPS 28

Engine not started teach-in fault

If the neutral indicator blinks, the engine must be started after no more than 10
sec. during the large teach-in procedure.
Perform FMR (FR) and PLD (MR) troubleshooting and rectify fault if necessary.

EPS 29

Engine revs missing teach-in fault

EPS 30

No gas teach-in fault

1. Gas pedal operated during teach-in procedure.


2. Perform FMR (FR) troubleshooting, teach-in gas pedal again if necessary.

EPS 31

Clutch distance teach-in fault

EPS 32

Countershaft shaft speed teach-in fault

1. The clutch was not correctly operated during the teach-in procedure (clutch
pedal not fully depressed).
2. Check clutch (B2) travel sensor for mechanical (stiff tappet) or electrical fault
(connection corroded).
Perform FMR (FR) troubleshooting and rectify fault if necessary.
