Power - Legacy

We have a 2014 Legacy SR Model LSA340KP-300. Several times now as we are traveling down the road, it just stops. Fortunately we have been on side roads or have just pulled into campgrounds and it's after we have driven just little over 100 miles. We let it sit for a few minutes and it has started right up for us. Trying to figure out what is wrong with it. Has anyone else had/have this problem? And if so what was the solution? We want to take off but afraid we will have issues with it while we might be on an interstate....
Thank you!

Check the battery disconnect switch where the engine batteries are. Remember seeing something about these switches going bad and causing symptoms like yours.

There were some posts on this back in 2015/16. You should be able to find them here. I would also call the freightliner direct number. Iíve found these guys to be very helpful .

As the previous poster said. Check the cutoff switch in the back by the chassis batteries. They go bad, faulty part or something. Mine did the same thing and it drove me crazy. I bypassed the switch and I've been fine <knock on wood> since doing that.

I have a 2014 Legacy and it had the same intermittent power loss prior to failure. Change it now not later......

I donít know how this isnít a recall. It is by far the most dangerous failure on a vehicle I have ever had. You lose all power, in addition you canít even run your hazard lights because all chassis power is dead.
