On some trucks there is a card reader or a key input to log the operator. Does the truck have a seat belt that is red? on the red seat belts it needs to be connected for the truck to start. If not then some one has turned on an option the truck does not have If you have access to the software check to see which options are turned on.

Fact of the week

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
