Show me someone who doesn't make any mistakes and I'll show you someone who doesn't do anything.

That's one mistake you'll NEVER make again!

You got that right.
I have always heard that good judgment comes from experience,
and experience comes from bad judgment.

Back to the original topic; SeaLevel Ram I'm glad you solved this problem.
I think putting extra restriction on the exhaust when the engine is idling would likely cause it to die also.
Obviously the diode fixed it. I guess this means the exhaust braek is a on/off device, (not variable).

Not to prolong this discussion too much, but I have to say that my unit DOES have a Jake brake. It is a Cummins ISL, 400 HP. It talks about it in the manual.

As I learned some time ago, some ISL engine's in the first stages, came with a exhaust brake. As far as referring to your equipment as a "Jake Brake" , that is a company/brand name , and they manufacture both compression and exhaust brakes. Sound like your ISL has a 2 stage compression brake on it.......
When talking about this subject, I always use the word "Engine brake" , that covers them both

There's a solenoid that allows the injector pump to get fuel in keeping it open is what keeps the engine running in an electrically powered my guess is power to that solenoid is being interrupted so I would get to the engine find that solenoid on the injector pump and then start tracing back. Mine is a mechanical but it may use the same solenoid those things are known to go out sorry if this sounds rambling but I'm using my phone.

Well now that I'm at a keyboard I can see you already fixed the problem so obviously disregard the above. FYI when you get a chance I'd still figure out where your fuel shutoff solenoid is..I've had one go bad and my buddy with an ISL has too (luckily when they go bad if you turn the key off/on the sometimes will re-engage). I've got a mechanical engine so I can just zip tie it open
