Default Allision trans power

Need some technical assistance. Changed the starter last week with a remanufactured Cummins starter. .
Powered things up. Cab lights up but no start. Transmission pad dark, no power. Checked the trans computer in the left front electrical bay.found 2 fuses both intact. One marked main power had no power.
Does anyone know where the fuse is for the trans computer.

James: since you changed the starter and then had issues I would look to make sure that you put all of the wires back on since generally all the battery power goes to the starter then other places.

True. I believe trans computer gets power from 10 ga wires directly off of start batteries. Easy to miss one.

Yes , ours had a 10 gauge red wire that was always hot that ran from the engine batteries all the way to the Allison relay box located under the drivers window .

Not yet. Been raining here so i cannot get under the coach. Did pull up the bed hatch and checked the wiring on the curb side . One bus is hot the other is dead. Hopefully the rain will stay away tmr.

Ok crawled under and started looking. Did not find a 10gage wire. Found 3 large cables on the grnd stud on the back and 2 smaller wires. Opened the bedroom hatch and did a close inspection of the starter area . No loose wiring i could see. As i was disassembling the starter accidentally crossed a hot wire
May have popped a fuse. Checked front and rear fuse panel as well as breakers in engine bay and left outside electrical box. So far all normal.

That 10 gauge wire should be in the battery compartment . You should check it for voltage at the Allison relay box under drivers window .

Agreed. I have 2 red 10 gauge wires in my battery compartment.

Ok will check. No power at the ECU or the solenoid in the left front electrical compartment
