    There's a switch in the fuse box behind the driver's seat.

    Hi Corvan, thanks for that good info. I have found the switch and it worked all my alarms are now working. The reason I missed it was because i ran my mouse along the switches and none came up with AWS. Now I know it was the 24 volt switch with a label underneath saying AWS, which when I got close enough could read it. Thanks again made driving the Class 66 a complete experience.

    Isn't this covered in the admittedly skimpy user's manual?

    I haven't actually looked at the manual, just gave the cabs a thorough examination.

    That said, I did once accidentally press the Engine Stop button in the Class 66 really quickly thinking it was a DRA switch. Couldn't get the thing going again afterwards, that ended that service.

    When all else fails, read the instructions; if that doesn't suffice, follow them.
