    I went out found load shedding relay. Took the red cable from the right side and put it on left side so both are now on left side. Turned truck on but still didn't have power to any of the buttons on right hand side...also forgot to.mention same day the ac/heater started to blow out opposite of the switch......I was just trying to do everything I can before taking to dealership....

    Ok, remove the kick panel to the left of the clutch pedal along the floor. Behind it is the body controller. There are about 5 connectors that plug into it. Make sure they are plugged in. Also, have a look up around where he reinstalled the rear engine cover and see if there is anything pinched between it and the rear of the firewall. It is hard to see up in there, but he may have caught a harness during reassembly.

    Heavyd. After messing with cab controller some of the buttons work now except the button for parked regen and the fog lights, and 5th wheel slide. I do not see a fuse location for either of those on the fuse panel?

    Those have no fuses. Those are digital inputs to the body controller. The body controller directly powers the fog lights or the air solenoid to the 5th wheel. The parked regen is a digital message to the engine, so there is no fuse for any of those. What is happening specifically with those switches?
     
    Krhaulin Thanks this.

    Sounds like engine is shutting off, losing ignition power and while everything else stays on. That is why it dies and you get the warning lights and messages. Check your engine related fuses in the fuse panel. Actually pull them out and check the terminal pins for tarnish and being spread loose. Other than that, you might have to get this towed somewhere to have someone look at it. With issues like this, I highly recommend a shop that knows Prostars and good with wiring.

    Hey heavyD. I have a international prostar 2012 maxxforce engine. First I experience trouble where my wipers would not cut off and lost have of the in cabin power, such as parked regen, susp air dump, along with cigarette lighter plugged. I reset the battery by unplugging the main source although that fix the wiper problem and got all the power back, the engine shut off on me while driving on full speed with no warning of any kind just comete shut off. Reset the battery, waited about 30 min and was able to start back up and ran about an hour before it did it again. When it shut off had a abs madule alarm and a electrical failure. Need help with this

    The abs module and electrical fault are messages that those devices are losing communication with the engine. So I would say your engine is losing electrical power, shutting off while the key is still on so the cluster and abs are still also on and expecting the engine to be communicating with them. Main ecm power fuse is feed from the mega fuse at the firewall. The actual ecm fuse is in a fuse holder nearby. Get the engine running and then start to wiggle the wiring anywhere you can see it and hopefully the engine quits at the bad spot.
