walawdog is on a distinguished road
Default No Tach, no speedo and no charge

OK, so I have a 1997 2500 with the diesel and auto tranny. Just the other day the truck was running fine until I jumped into it at night to run to the store. Low and behold, there was no speedo, no tach and the alternator was not charging. Also, the tranny seemed like it was stuck in 2nd and will not shift up or down in drive. In addition, I cannot preheat my plugs, and the cruise control does not work. I replaced the battery and also the alternator with no luck curing anything. I am thinking that since all this happened in one shot...I think my trucks engine control unit is shot....what do you think?

Thanks for all the help.
