Actia speedometer alarm failure

2003-2007 Blue Bird Vision

In the past this problem has been repaired by replacing the entire speedometer head (Fig. 1) because the internal alarm is not replaceable. In order to keep costs down and keep your bus on the road and legal, an external alarm can be wired into the system at the brake failure monitor module.

The monitor module will be located in one of two places — under the dash in front of your left knee (Fig. 2), or on top of the driver’s side of the fire wall under the hood (Fig. 3). Once the monitor module has been located, wire the ground side of the alarm to the tan wire in pin C of the connector and wire the positive side of the alarm into the yellow wire on pin F (Fig. 4 & 6). The alarm can then be mounted under the dash.
