At any speed truck stops running. Pull over and restarts then goes for a while and dose it again. Start truck and key stays on have to turn it back by hand. Replaced starter once already in three months.

My ABS and emergency brake lights have been on ever sense I have bought the truck (mid 2014) and I can't seem to figure out why. I have read several places that say that some of the solder points in the ABS module have probably cracked and need to be repaired if it throws a certain code (and mine does). Haven't had the time or money to fix the problem as my truck is my daily driver. Have noticed some slight pulsing in the brakes when stopping, but not enough to annoy you. The lights on the dash will annoy you though. I have also been chasing several vacuum leaks. One was by the brake master cylinder and another (from inside the cab) sounds like it's right above the transmission housing at the back of the engine (where you can't see). It's so bad that when I first start the engine and start to drive at 1/2 throttle, it has absolutely no power, but then picks back up again after about a 1/4 mile with no power. Because of the vacuum leak, I'm guessing, it sounds like I have a turbo on the truck from inside the cab. If you turn the radio off, you can definitely hear it.
