CAT 305 CR Mini Excavator Shuts Off

I have a 2004 CAT 305 CR mini excavator.  During operation, the engine shuts down intermittently with no warning or indication. 

 

The only way to keep the operation going is to remove the wires from the shutdown solenoid.

 

Is there a common issue that causes this? Where is the best place to start looking for the false shutdown signal?
