The truck runs. I have tried a different ICU and a different bulkhead. Didn't fix the problem. Check fuses.

Good evening
Yes that message that your are getting means the truck data link is shorted out and the vehicles ecu's are not talking to one another thus the message you are getting on the dash, whats causing the issue? Well the most common issue is the chassis module, this module is mounted on the frame left side midship.. Usually just behind the cab, it has 5 connectors unplug all those connectors and inspect for corrosion, let me know what you find..

Ok. I will check it in the morning. I did notice that the owner before may have replaced it. It appeared to be new.

Not getting any fire at the body control unit

I found a blowed fuse by the batteries. When I unplug the top right plug in the body control unit the gauges work. When I plug it in it blows the fuse and they stop working.

Are you talking about the bhm module at the firewall,? If so please tell me the plug number, the numbers should be cast into the module..

The chassis module. C3

have a look at the link

that fuse at plug c3 is for the following outputs on the link,you have to remove 1 wire at a time and see what wire is popping the fuse..once you find the wire we will take it from there,let me know how you do..

I didn't get to look at the diagram but I did what you said earlier today and drove the truck 500 miles tonight and everything was fine. I found the J1587 wires that are twisted together (green wire and orange wire). I cut the green wire, plugged in C3 and everything is working fine except for the fuel gauge works 3/4 of the time. Mainly while driving it is working but when I stop it stops. Also, I can plug into the ecm inside the cab and read all the engine information now.
