    Truck shuts off after a couple minutes while in park. Pressing the brake or the accelerator will restart the timer for shutdown but then it still shuts off a couple minutes later. Setting the cruise control does not work. Setting the trailer brake and releasing the truck parking brake does not work.

    Go to KW shop tell them to turn the perimeters to 0/turn off idle shutdown.

    Or get a stick on acceleration pedal for now.

    Already tried sticking my winchbar down in there and revved it over a thousand rpm but that does not do it. The shop is the only way to get it done? I am in Atlanta out of hours, First day in this truck and I hate it already.

    I don’t know where the sensor is on those new ones, should have a temp range set, I thought.

    Go get a motel, charge it back to company, tell them to pay or you’ll get a job without a pos truck..

    Doesn't it have some kind of optimized idle mode ??? Or that it'll idle above certain temperatures??

    Push your yellow valve in but leave the trailer breaks set. That's the only way we can idle ours.

    Not sure on the new ones, but check the bottom of the drivers side mirror. The sensor should be on the bottom.

    Take a hot hands hand warmer pouch, tape it over the sensor, it should heat up your outside temp gauge and let the truck idle.

    Ours idle above 90 degrees or under 20 degrees without that though!

    on kw we used to run with a cat in it just before the truck would shut down the idiot light above the winsheild will blink on and off think it was 5 times on the 5th blink it would shut it down but if you caught the light right befoe the 5th blink just push the clutch down to the floor back up that over rode the shut off good to idle as much as you can
