2010 GU 713 shutting off while driving

Question

I have a 2010 GU 713 and the truck has been shutting off while I am driving and the ABS light comes on.  This happened about 2 months ago a few times so we took to the dealer  They said EGR valve was clogged., so we changed the EGR valve and truck has been running ok  Today it shut off twice again.  Has anyone have these issues

Check & clean any sensors on the egr system? According to my books on the earlier aset engines, the computer would only put the truck in limp mode to prevent catastrophic damage to the engine. But that's limp mode, not total shutdown. Check for bad power or grounds to the engine, including battery terminals. I had a 99 dodge Cummins auto that would slip in and out of overdrive due to voltage fluctuations caused by a barely loose battery connection. If you can wiggle the battery cable at all its too loose. Could also check your battery cells to make sure you aren't losing a battery. Computers rely on sensors operating in a very specific voltage range.
