need help fast!!! truck cutting off

my truck has started cutting out when i hit a pretty good bump in the road it only does it sometimes. when i hit a bump my radio cuts out,my wait to start light blinks and unless i let off the pedal i have no throttle what could cause this? i had codes read and it wasnt showing any idm of pcm codes. could my chip be causeing it,possibly not getting good contact and the bumps are causeing it to throw the computer off?

If you don't correct that soon you will most likely burn out your PCM and chip. If it were me I would take the time to address that asap.

You are gonna have to look over all of your harnesses and check for loose connections. I would start at the PCM connector and unplug it and look for corrosion bent pins etc.. Then I would look at the vss connection at the rear axle since you are getting the abs light.

Re: need help fast!!! truck cutting off

well i belive i found it i am only running on one battery cause my negative terminal broke and i havent had time to fix it so i zip tied the cables out of the way as not to touch but the one on the positive broke and it was barely off the battery tray but close enough that a bump would cause it to hit it.

Re: need help fast!!! truck cutting off

Yeah that would do it. I would make sure that I insulated the exposed ends real good and make sure they are secured away from eachother and metal objects unless you want to replace all the expensive electronics in your truck.

Re: need help fast!!! truck cutting off

So whats the word? Has the problem resolved itself or are you still having issues?
