Hi my name is***** will try to help. Are you getting any fault or error messages through the monitor panel? Is it overheating? Any smoke, hydraulic functional or operational issues on any particular functions? Please provide further detail on the symptoms you are having.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
The hydraulic operations are fine, there is no smoke.
When the engine heat reaches 3rd or 4th point mark on monitor it turns off
Expert:  Dan replied 8 days ago.

What fault codes are logged in the monitor panel? If it is shutting down there will likely be a fault or error code in the monitor. Check all your fuses and relays as well and the wiring harness to the VECU and ECU for corroded, burnt or damaged connectors/wires in behind the seat in the cab or possible faulty VECU. Let me know.
