Tow haul flashed... truck unable to start. Need help fast!

I am currently broken down on the side of the highway with my 2005 F-350 super duty. I recently had my transfer case replaced, and shift motor. I was passing a vehicle, and the truck seemed to slip. The tow haul light began flashing, and I lost substantial power. I guess safe mode? My engine temperature also rose dramatically, so I pulled over to asses the situation. I shut down the truck, and am now unable to start it. I have disconnected the batteries, and reconnected them, but no success. I have plenty of power, and all my fluids are good. It just seems as if there is something preventing power to the starter. How can I bypass this to get my truck fired up. I am sure this is a safety feature that has been engaged.
