1999 International 3800 wiring Diagram for Interlock

Does anyone have a wiring schematic for a 99 international 3800 with a dt466 or know what the service manual might be called or titled?

Interlock help

I am looking for the schematic to disable the interlock as i got a bit over eager and cut the wrong wire and now the bus is not running. I am working on repairing what i cut but it would help if i had the schematic.

Lol. Sorry, just funny: The long wire

Well, that long wire is important. It is a treasure map. Follow it and see where it leads.....

Don't nobody never get no wiring diagrams or schematics for the lockouts. I think it's part rites of initiation, part IQ test.

Is your bus front or rear engine? does it have a wheel chair lift?

I don't have any diagrams for your bus? But to me? Safety switches are there to protect you and your passengers. Whether it be two or 60.
I can understand wanting to remove one hear or there in a custom re-build but I would start by finding/disconnecting and maybe even jumper wires in the main panel to figure out a final solution at the beginning point of the wire and not at the long end? The ordinal start point is likely a removable/plug and play connector which gives you room to plug and play befor cutting wires anywhere?
Which in my mind leaves me with spare wire's that can be repurposed on both ends for the voltage they were intended for of course.
Good luck and I learn from my experiences and I never wanted to play electrician but life either requires you to learn it or pay for it?

One reason for wanting to remove them is that the bus won't start if the emergency doors are locked. That means you have to go around and unlock them all before you drive, and lock them again to secure the bus at stops.

Having so many emergency exits is not quite so important with only a couple of adults on the bus and not 70 children.

I was watching some riots on tv when I noticed a bus being attacked by the mob. The bus couldn't go fast because of the mob in front and individuals near the back of the bus simply opened the back door and entered. Not a good day for a bus driver.

I left the interlock intact on this bus. When I get a bunch of lumber or something stacked in the bowling alley, at times it's quite difficult to get to the back door lock to disable the interlock. Having not installed any deadbolt locks yet I tie my red emergency exit door handles with paracord from the inside. They're unlocked but can't be opened from the exterior so I don't keep having to lock and unlock the rear doors at every stop I make while in town. They open easily from the inside when I pull the string. No more forgetting and leaving the vehicle unlocked. Not perfect, but cheap and effective.

It's a good system, but can still be a PITA.
