Torque Pro and the 6.0

I wanted to ask here first since I don't know anyone over at the 6.0 forum. My BIL recently bought a 2009 E450 motor home with a 6.0. Anyway when they were here to visit I hooked him up with my old Acer tablet that worked fine on my 7.3, and we got him an ELM 327, the good one that Rich uses, MX or something like that. So everything works fine for a while, like 20-30 min then gauges begin to drop out. If he keeps driving, all the gauges will quit. Also the ABS light will flicker on faintly then go out, and two other dash lights (but not the check engine light). Once he unplugs it everything is fine. He is now on his way back up to Vancouver WA and I can only help by phone. Any ideas? Is it possible the MX is shutting off?

This sounds more like he has a PID that's either configured wrong or doesn't belong there. He can either sift through the PIDs by testing each one, or he can install FORScan and just run that ugly thing as he drives.

OK thanks. I told him to delete all his gauges and start bringing them back one at a time. We will see what happens.
