  17. ok i have a 2006 mack mr688s (032711) with a concrete boom sitting on it. The truck would act like it was shut off but never cut out, the code is coming from vecu. It was happening once a month then once a week now 2X daily i checked from the batteries to power relays and everything in between and cannot find anything, the starter, alternator, engine grounds, frame grounds, the ground relay on drivers side by air filter behind little black cover its very annoying especially while pumping concrete any other trouble shooting advice would me great thanks!!!
