Check that the engine stop solenoid is working and the fuse to it is not blown. check wiring for it. From you description it is like the key was turned off and that will be the only item relevant at this time

SOURCE: Have a 2004 Peterbilt 379, looking for Specs for

Have a look at this site, it gives a comprehensive description for setting headlights:-
http://www.300cforums.com/forums/lighting-discussion/49644-aiming-headlights.html


However, headlight adjustment must conform to the relevant road ordinances and laws of the place of vehicle registration. For your own peace of mind and to comply with legal requirements I suggest that you take the vehicle to a registered center and have the lights set to the standards set by law.

Yes, if you are running over- the- road just stop in a State that has vehicle inspections and they can set the lights to their specs. In those States that have an inspection setting the headlight aim is part of the job.

Next method, park your unit about 20 feet from a garage door or the side of a building or carwash. Use some tape or pencil and make 2 crosses. The passenger side is allowed to be high and slightly to the right. A correctly aimed right headlight will focus on the curb or lane marker with the right headlight spot-on the lane marker. This will mean you will be safely within your lane on the right side of your truck as long as the headlight hits the lane marker.

For the left light it is suppose to be almost straight ahead and not tipped out to oncoming traffic. In some States the left light is turned slightly towards the center of your truck. You can check against the crosses you put on the surface of the building and watch the beams move as you adjust the lights. Use some chalk to mark where the tires were so you can get into the same spot.

I had to do some Vehicle Inspections in Texas years ago. I want to say the headlights were suppose to be 42" high at 20 feet, but you have a Peterbuilt. And now some of the cars are barely 48" high.

1994 Mazda PU Truck sometimes won't start if shutoff for 5-10 minutes.. Several tries later, it will start. spark seems ok, it gets enough fuel for a second, but then poops out. fuel pump shuto


Well there is no shutoff relay, but there is a fuel pump relay that powers the pump.
I would check it first. The computer grounds the relay for 3 seconds when you crank the engine to boost fuel pressure. Once the engine starts the pump is powered only if you have oil pressure.
