    Wouldn’t hurt, as they can often assist with scheduling the visit and finding a dealer that has available service appointments.

    If the dealer can’t figure it out or makes multiple repairs and it’s still not fixed, you can request a field rep from customer service. Their criteria for engaging a rep is based on time down and repair attempts.

    I got the truck back and the dealer found a loose ground which was causing a communication error and causing the systems to shut down. I was a little skeptical, but to be fair, I did dry fit an Up Down Air controller a week earlier and it's possible I overtightened a ground screw and unknowingly stripped it. It's hard to believe I wouldn't notice that when doing it or when checking the grounds later, but it's possible and makes sense. I also haven't had an issue since I picked it up.

    It looks like this one is on me and not the truck. They used oversized self tapping screws instead of rethreading, which I thought was weird, but whatever. Either way, I'm glad it's fixed, but I feel like an idiot that it was something so simple and I may have caused it.

    @Booth9999 good call on the diagnosis. I appreciate all the help from everyone.

    Glad to see you got this corrected. Just had something similar on mine and it ended up being melted wiring on O2 sensor too close to exhaust.

    Sure was interesting and a pleasure to see how everyone jumped on this Forum to give you a helping hand.

    Just so I can learn from your experience, there are a lot of different ground points in a truck.

    How many grounds did they work on?

    What was the actual bad ground point that caused the failure?


    Thanks
