alot of cities have a laws about idleing trucks,someone must have ordered an automatic shutdown, you should be able to bypass it.
WHAT I MEAN IS EVERY TIME I GET OUT OF THE TRUCK (03 CL) WITHIN A COUPLE MINUTES THE TRUCK TURNS OFF. wHEN I USE THE PUMP I CAN SET THE CTUISE AND IT WILL STAY ON BUT I CANT RUN INTO THE STORE WITHOUT IT SHUTTING OFF. IS THERE A WAY TO BYPASS THAT OR HAVE THE ECU REPROGRAMED?

Theyll hook up their laptop to the socket under the dash, and disable the auto shutdown.
Also the road speed limiting can be disabled or set to a higher MPH the same way.

They can also program the Maximum PTO speed, so you don't overspeed it, if that's a concern.
Your problem with the engine shutdown light flashing was likely due to low coolant level. I would also idle my truck up when sitting for a while 800 - 1000 rpm.
Have the tech go through the menus with you, and have him explain what the parameters are & what they do. You also have the option of changing the action of the foot throttle - whether it work as a percentage of power, or percentage of fuel flow. (or something like that...my memory fails me on the specifics right now.)
