Is it showing TBC fault on your dash? TBC = Trailer Brake Control

TBC... Sorry I was thinking something else when I opened this thread (trailer brake control). Not going to be much help for you right now other than a bump.

What are you using to scan the truck and what P codes are coming up?

Did it show TBC fault on your dash, as in a read out on the gauge cluster?

I've never heard the term turbo boost control used before. That "sounds" to me like a bad VGT solenoid, but even if your solenoid was bad that would not shut the truck down. It would run like crap, but it would run.
