Re: 2.4 jtd cuts out under hard accelleratoin
As suggested already, and as you're "lucky" to get the injector light on, getting the error codes read could eventually give an indication of the fault. Because it's cutting out completely it would seem though that the fault is regarded by the ECU to be serious enough to do that.
I haven't heard/read that overboosting would result in complete cut out but to drop down to limp mode.
A problem with the rpm/crank sensor will result in cutting out the engine, even though here the symptoms are not exactly the typical ones.
I'm not sure but maybe also a problem on the fuel pressure (real) or sensor could result in cutting out the engine....
