    Western tornado electric salter has continuous beep error. This is not listed ad one of the error codes in the owners manual, I tried a search but this doesn't seem to have been covered. Anyone else dealt with this?

    Its most likely just one beep. But since its the same slight pause between each beep it seems like its a continuous beep. Sounds like a poor connection from the spreader wiring to the truck wiring.

    I agree. Continuous flash / beep is a one.

    Found a bad fuse, replaced it with one off a brand new salter we have sitting in the yard and that did the trick.

    I have downloaded and keep a copy of the manual error sheet on my phone so I can quickly reference it to see what the beeps mean!!!

    I have used it a couple times already this year!!!

    The fuse that he changed was probably the big one. Without that fuse the decoder module has no power so cannot respond to commands. The controller fires up because it gets power from the ign fuse.
