Default Low air alarm

Low air alarm continually stays on even though tanks hold pressure for a week at a time without engine running so I know pressure is okay what should I do?

Does it go away when you run the engine?

No I see there's a switch is that behind the dash or is it underneath by the tanks I believe that would probably be the problem once I looked at the wiring diagrams

my low air pressure switch was in the general area of behind the front bumper on the drivers side.

Sounds like the low pressure switch is stuck closed which provides ground for the circuit turning on the low air alarm. When you build air pressure the switch should open the circuit turning off the low air alarm.

It’s going to be the “whiskey bottle” type unless PO’s have changed it out. I couldn’t locate the old style so you will likely have to go with the round style and add a wire loop to the wire when you cut off the female connector. I want to say 30psi. I’m sorry that I do not have a part number right now, but I will next month when we get the bus out of storage.
Good luck!

Or try just unplugging it since many are a closed circuit at low pressure and then open when pressure is reached.
