Odd H&S issue

First time this has happen. Driving down the road at 55mph and my Minn Maxx truns off and then truns right back on. Like it was reset its self. And now it happen again on the way home about the same speed. The truck acts fine and runs normal. This all happen in about 120miles of driving today. Everything is hookup good.

Check and make sure the power wire has a good connection to the purple wire. If you used a displacement connector try twisting it on the wire a little.

Had mine do this on me, ended up being a faulty HDMI cord, switched to a new cord and no more issues. Wiggle everything you can to try and narrow it down but it will be tough sometimes to find still.

yes standard HDMI cable. You can order them on line for a fraction of the cost of a store but I wouldn't think the HDMI cable would cause it to reboot. That sounds more like a power cord issue.

Yup normal HDMI, I used the one in my BlendMount so that was perfect timing but you could borrow your TV's if you wanted to just check it first. The unit restarts because the display is only powered by the HDMI cord, if there is a problem with the cord it is going to affect what you see and how the unit reacts as everything is run through the one cord. The module is powered by the purple wire and that may not reboot itself but you don't see what that unit is doing you only see the screen.

To check for voltage issues you can also put the voltage gauge on and drive around for a week or so. If you have a loose battery terminal or loose ground somewhere on the truck you may never see full 14.3 charge and may find things like 10v and 11v on your screen and random reboots. They may feel tight as well but there isn't a lot of wiggle room with some of the connections so put a wrench on just to make sure they are tight.

This just happen again this time when it happen I was just rolling back into to keep speed(45mph) I had a loud bang and the truck shudder (I was think maybe ice falling from the sign we were going under.) At the same time the minn maxx power off then back on. Everything looks good I check all the hookups, the truck still run fine.
