My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

First off, there is a regen fault. That is why you have the code. I siggesy having the truck scanned to see what the exact fault code you have for the system you have.

The regen module could be draining the batteries down and causing both issues or you have a short to ground on the CAN BUS at the module causing the batteries to drain.

I know you don't want to take the truck to the dealer, but this case you will have to. With the dash not working as well, there is definitely a module and/or communication proglem on the CAN BUS. Only a scanner/laptop with the software will be able to locate which module is acting up.

I would also test the batteries just in case one is bad and causing that. If one has a dead cell, it will cause low voltage and then you will have the problems you have. Most likely a short to ground on the CAN BUS will be the cause.

You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see,

touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.

I see you viewed this and this is still showing as an open question due to no positive (3 stars or more) rating.

Were you not pleased with my service to you or is there a rating issue? Please let me know if you still need assistance with this, if there is a rating issue, and/or you need more time to respond.

I like to make sure all my customers are satisfied since you did pay a deposit for me to assist you, whether I’m paid by a positive rating feedback or not.

We can continue where we left off or start over if needed. Also, if you need diagrams, instructions, etc please don’t hesitate to ask.
