German term or phrase:VIM
"Überprüfen Sie, ob die Sicherung im VIM in Ordnung ist (Verbindungsstück zwischen Getriebe und Fahrzeugelektrik)"
The operating function of the exhaust brake consists of a 12-Volt fuse power connected to the foot switch. From the foot switch a 12-Volt signal is sent through a relay in the transmission VIM box. From the VIM box the signal is sent through the chassis harness to a relay, and this relay sends a signal to the engine ECU. The engine confirms that all parameters are met, and then sends a 12-Volt positive signal feed to the air solenoid for the Pac brake butterfly to employ. At the same time, a signal is sent to the brake light relay located in the front fuse panel.
