I have a serious issue and need help. Vehicle is stranded on the side of the road (safely) and here's what happened. Driving (normal) 1/4 mile away from the house, motor shut down. Pulled off, tried restart. Motor turns over normally and all gauges work (temp/oil/volt). The only weird thing is that the O/D light on the end of the shift selector stays on even after pushing it on and off. I plugged in my OBDII reader and it will not link with the system. Yes... the ignition is on Is this indicative of a fuel, computer, electrical issue? or all the above. Worst case scenario is i have it towed to the shop tomorrow and they diag it. I don't have the proper tools to diag this Thanks for the help all!
bubbles was lack of fuel. EIther you have a fuel pump problem that causes pump to quite now and then, or you had a slug of water / ice in the line that changed / melted overnight. If it happens again, or even daily test... when you turn the key every morning, do you hear the fuel pump run for a second and build up pressure ?

This would be the first time it's ever done this. I live in Tampa FL, so there's no ice. At least from weather conditions. Yes, I do hear the pump run. I went for a drive this morning and it drove fine and no issues. The thing that bothers me is that when the truck shut off, the OD light came on and stayed on.
