  • System shutdown

    Has anybody experienced a total system shutdown? I was sitting at an idle when the switch lights went off and everthing stopped except my truck which, of course, switched back to diesel. I immediately checked the fuses but no burnouts. I have checked for bad wires and found nothing, however, I may have missed something there.

    This system is a little over 2 years but has had limited use,
    maybe 2000 miles. Any suggestions?

    Is the FASS pump running? Have you checked the pressure switch or temp switch?

          Check the resettable circuit breaker under the hood. It is a small rectangualr bos inline with the main power feed from the battery. We are looking for an alternative to hose at the moment. It may be covered by a red protective cover.

          Those operate based on heat, so what can happen under the right condtions are that the underhood heat during hot weather will skew the rating of those by a fair amount and they trip. Even though you have not reached it's "rated" amperage.

              Sure enough, that was the problem!! It had to be about 100 degrees out and I was sitting still with the engine running...had to be hot as blazes under the hood. I'm up and running again.

              Many thanks!
