Engine running
Thanks for the information.
Sounds like if it was low on coolant. That’s what shut it down. I’ve seen this many times.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.

If was coolant how come battery light and all gages get missed up
Oh I see.
That sounds like a loose connection at the starter or batteries. Could also be a faulty or corroded battery cable.
