If a Cummins ISX 15L goes into engine protection torque

Customer Question
derate can it be run...
If a Cummins ISX 15L goes into engine protection torque derate can it be run and if so will it do any more damage.. I think I have a wiring harness issue because I have about 10 active codes relating to the body controller and the engine and the truck stop can't fix it and the dealership is 100 miles away should I be towed or can I risk driving it

It should be towed when the engine is in protection mode and if it gets worse you would be limited to 5MPH . You can do damage if something other than the harness is wrong and Cummins or a dealer can use that info that you continued to drive after being warned by the lights. Its best to just tow it.
