PTP 524267.16 – Clutch Slipping Too Long

PTP 524267.16 (PTP )

Code: 524267.16



This error code is stored when the PTP control unit calculates that too much heat is being absorbed by either the AB, BC, CC, or DC clutch elements, indicating that the clutches are slipping.


The control unit limits functionality to prevent potential damage due to excessive clutch slippage.


  • Inspect Clutches:
    Check the AB, BC, CC, and DC clutches for signs of wear or damage. Replace worn or damaged clutches as necessary.
  • Verify Hydraulic Pressure:
    Ensure that the hydraulic pressure is within the specified range to allow proper clutch engagement.
  • Check Transmission Fluid:
    Verify that the transmission fluid level is correct and that the fluid is in good condition. Replace the fluid if it is contaminated or degraded.
  • Monitor Clutch Temperature:
    Use diagnostic tools to monitor the temperature of the clutch elements during operation. Ensure that cooling systems are functioning properly.
  • Adjust Driving Habits:
    Train operators to avoid excessive clutch slippage by using appropriate driving techniques.
  • Consult Technical Support:
    If the issue persists, consult technical support or the manufacturer for further assistance.


Regular maintenance and monitoring of clutch performance are essential to prevent excessive heat build-up and ensure reliable transmission operation.
