Auto Park update

I finally got my Auto park fixed. Jose overhauled the leaky actuator and we also had to replace an erratic cam switch up behind the dash. (access by cutting a hole high in the drivers side wheel well). GM part #15961561. My rig is a 96 Airstream with auto park plus a foot operated park brake. Getting to the switch was a real bear. Jim

I was not nearly so lucky. Mine is a 2000 LY with the J72 Auto Park and Parking Brake. It went out on the Natchez Trace a couple weeks ago coming back to Louisiana from Tennessee. I am having to replace the pressure switch, Park Brake pump, pump & motor assembly, shoe set -park brake, P series Drive line park brake pressure switch, Park Brake Cylinder and drum, seal - Automatic Transmission Case Extension... at a cost North of $2200. Talked to the shop today and we are still waiting for parts. Jay

Jay, the AP in your coach is a J71 same as mine and would reconsider the proposed work, as it seems excessive and would get a second opinion. You did not say what failure mode you experienced.
Regards,
Steve

Agreed with above. Seems like they're just throwing a ton of parts at a problem instead of troubleshooting the cause.

Snickers:

Your cruise control issue may not be an AP issue.

Work Horse bought the chassis (P32) IN NOV 1999 and continued to build for WH for "some" time.

First place to look is the RGS, "Rotten Green Switch", may be "under the hood" in your configuration. In all probability, you have the "J71" system with the majority of parts parts located there. The "green" switch may be brown in your case, same part different GM part #. Look on E-Bay.
Disconnect the electrical connector, examine and if you see hydraulic fluid there, replace the switch.

There is much info here and elsewhere. If your Vin# begins with a 5, then you are a WH chassis go to IRV2.com and click on appropriate discussion, WH/Chev.

As a resource source, check with Roger, aka Old Used Bear on the AP library, the resident expert on the J71 system . Provide pertinent details of your coach and failure mode.

Good luck

Steve
