Engine quit and wont restart
sunday nite while towing my nephews chevy 1500 back from Reno I was climbing a moderate grade in the Sierras. Everything was smooth and fine.
The engine went into regen. A few seconds later the yellow engine icon came on. 2 seconds later a warning said to get off the road safely now. 2 seconds later the engine died. Managed to get into the only turnout in two miles.
After stopping the engine did not even attempt to start. Not even a solonoid click. I had it towed home. (10000 miles out of warenty) bought a code reader and drew codes P200E (cat system overtemp bank 1) and P242D (exhaust gas temp sensor circuit high- bank 1 sensor 3)
Still does not try to start. Battery is 13.6 V
Any ideas on where to start?
