Anyone know how to turn a turbo timer off? In summertime it turns the engine and the AC off when not wanted...
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

I have that style of timer in my hilux ute, and the timer only comes into action when the handbrake is on and the key is turned to off.
When i want to leave/lock my vehicle but leave the engine running, i have to leave the key "on" in the ignition, and use my spare key to unlock the door to get back in again.

Use the tractor protection valve to apply the trailer maxis, without applying the prime mover parking brake. Or as Swishy said, use the cruise control to lift the motor above idle.

I think you'll find it isnt the timer but the ecm shutting the engine down after proplonged idle. I do the cruise thing when I'm doing A/C or charging the batteries and it can be left running indefinitely once the ecm sees a it of throttle action.

Thanks for all the responses team, it looks like 600 is on the money, it's not the Turbo Timer because with the key left on the engine shuts down after a period of inactivity. Unfortunately raising the idle makes no difference, it still shuts down the engine. FYI it's a 2007 Western Star if anyone knows any more tricks.

I have no idea which engine you have but somewhere in my fuddled brain, I recall the early DDEC Detroits were programmed to shut down after about 6 minutes once the park brake was applied. Apparently to stop drivers pulling up for "10 minutes over the wheel' and sleeping for half an hour with the engine idling.

You'll have to get someone to change the Parameters in the ECM..
No big deal, & a couple minutes work to turn the "idle shut down" Off.
Sounds like your PTO function is Turned Off. As has being mentioned bumping the Idle up with the PTO function (Cruise control) should disable the shut down feature & let you unload without shutting Down part way through It..
