EMS INSTRUMENT CLUSTER CONTINUED
Transmission (Gear Box) Filter Blocked
The machine is fitted with a separate transmission oil filter. If the filter becomes blocked, the warning light (Figure 51, Item
29) will be illuminated, the internal and external buzzers will sound, and the message "TRANS FILTER" will be displayed on
the LCD. The buzzer can be canceled by pressing the OK button (Figure 51, Item 5) on the EMS.
The warning light, buzzers, and message will be extinguished once the condition has been corrected.
If the transmission filter warning light and message are displayed, report the occurrence to Field
Maintenance as soon as the tactical situation allows. Continuing to use the machine could result in
damage to equipment.

Transmission Oil Temperature Sensor/Warning
A sensor is fitted to the transmission to measure the temperature of the transmission oil. The temperature is displayed to the
operator by means of a 20-segment bar graph (Figure 52, Item 30). The segments of the bar graph are color coded. Segments 1
to 16 will appear green, segments 17 to 20 will appear red.
High Temperature Reading
When the transmission oil temperature reaches 248F (120C), the warning light (Figure 52, Item 31) on the EMS will illumi-
nate. (Red segment 17 of the bar graph will also be illuminated.)
If the oil temperature continues to rise, at 250F (121C), not only will the warning light (Figure 52, Item 31) be illuminated,
but the internal buzzer will sound and the message "TRANS TEMP +" will be displayed by the LCD.
