    I got a 1997 peterbilt 379 With a Detroit series 60 in it and when you try to start it the stop engine light and low coolent light flash. It is full of coolest and has a brand new censor and has power to the censor. I believe it may be a wiring issue any tips on where to start

    But is the return wire ok? Power side is only half the circuit.

    Does it have a shutdown override switch. Hold it down and see if it will run.
