My truck shut off 3 times today once driving to work and truck shut off but started back up on its own. on the way home hauling a trailer doing about 70 it shut off again but stayed off til i restarted. the 3rd timeit happen the same as it did the first time. I did a scan test with my matco scanner and got p0605. I have done some searching found similar problems but no answers on how they fix the issue. checked my chip and its tight and taped in so i dont think thats the issue newer ipr and icp about 6 months old and if it was that i think maybe a code would be present.

Sounds like a bad cam position sensor. They can fail intermittent and not throw a code.

Are you sure the truck is actually dieing? If the TPS starts to fail it will go to idle while driving.

If the tach is reading 0, but the engine is still moving some, then it sounds like a cam position sensor problem.
