    Can anyone please tell me how to cancel the idle shutdown in an '08 International Prostar? I hope it is something simple like on the volvo. Thanks for the help!

    When the shop hooks the laptop in the truck, they have an options screen to set the truck up how they want.

    One of them is idle control. They can set an automatic shut down or give the driver the option of bumping up the cruise to maintain idle. There are other options, but if you can't bump the cruise, then yours is probably set on auto shut down.

    Next time ask your shop when you are there or give the shop manager a call. But they probably have it deliberately set up that way.
     
    Tapeworm Thanks this.
