PTP 524267.31 – A Brake (AB) or B Clutch (BC) Slipping Too Long

PTP 524267.31 (PTP )

Code: 524267.31



This error code is stored when the PTP control unit calculates that too much heat is being absorbed by the AB (A Brake) or BC (B Clutch) elements, indicating that these elements are slipping.


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


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


Proper maintenance and monitoring of the brake and clutch systems are crucial for preventing excessive heat build-up and ensuring reliable operation.
