Truck acting weird

Ok when im driving the gauges on truck go to 0 and check engine light comes on. I let it do a dump and wait a lil hile and go to take off and trck will cut out and lights come on and it says no bus in the odometer. Comp box is off the truck. I dont know what the deal is. When all this started my battery gauge would peg out while going down the road. I would kill it and then start right ack up and it was fine.

How are the connections at your batteries? Not saying this is the problem, but I had some real odd things happen with my electrical system for a while, until I put new terminal connections on and cleaned up my batteries real well.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

check the batt connections and have your alternator checked...im thinking it may be bad bushings in your alt.

I would also check the cable that runs to the power distibution area, conections and also check voltage from the batt to the other end by the power distibution area, the cable could be corroded inside and you would never see it.

Thanks guys since it has started doin this i thought it was comp box. I took it off and truck hasnt done it. I put it back on the other day and By time afternoon rolled around truck was acting crazy agian. But i was also have battery terminal problems too. My positive terminal on drivers side isnt the best and i have cleaned it real good and done what i could to get it tighter and and so far so good. But i also havent put comp back on it yet. Do yall think its the comp or connections? This thing is a dog and needs something.

That would be my guess, as mine has been acting weird with the Edge on as well. I am sending it in soon to be "checked out." Hopefully they can fix it.

Well i hate to speak too soon but 2 days with comp and so far so good. We will see. But i would think if it was comp it would act up regardless but we will see truck does have a mind of its own!

Mine started doing that a while back, randomly. You'd cycle the key a couple times, or wait a few minutes, then everything was normal again. Did it on and off for 2 months - then the alt. died. Replaced the alternator, and it hasn't done it since. MAYBE coincidence, maybe not..........
