    I pulled the shift lever over with a bungee and the motor only runs for twenty minutes. Are you pulling back a little like it is going into gear? Any other hints? Company truck so I am limited.

    yeah I pulled the shifter back so basically it was almos in gear, there is a little spot where you can feel its not in nuetral and it pushing against the top gear. I had to have mine bungeed to the passenger seat so it wouldnt fall out.

    Hey yall i just finished my 28 days few days ago. got into a 13' cascadia with same issue i tried turning it on didnt work ....but i figured out a way to i guess u can call it bypass thw opt idle. turned truck on - turnes the cruise control on - then pressed the accel button - after that i kept pressing the decel. Button till the idle got little but above normal idle.


    Idk if that helps anyone or if that would mess up oil pressure or not
