Yes. It is an absolute fallacy that a creditor/lender has to accept any payment other than the full amount that was agreed upon in the original contract. Many consumer's are under the impression that as long as they make a payment of some type to a credit card issuer or lending institution, respossession or legal action is not possible; that is totally false. As soon as a borrower misses a scheduled payment the contract has been defaulted on and unless there is a "grace" period, the creditor can take any action deemed necessary. Additonally, the lender can continue to accept lesser payments and apply them to the interest and penalty fees and be within their legal rights to file a lawsuit, repossess a vehicle or begin foreclosure proceedings.

Yes, your truck can be repossessed even if you are using it to earn an income, however, you can tell your creditor that you are earning money with your truck, and that if the creditor does not repossess the truck you will use that income to make payments on your loan.

Can you default on a car loan when the lender stops your automatic payments?

Assuming they haven't actually repossessed the car yet, you should contact them immediately to find out what's going on and begin making up the missed payments. If they made an error, they should stop repossession proceedings and remove the ding on your credit report (you should probably also contact the credit bureaus in the meantime to dispute the report). If they HAVE repossessed the car...If the lender stopped processing your automatic payments without notifying you, and you did in fact have the funds available to make the payments had they tried to process the automatic payments, then you might want to consult an attorney; it sounds like you probably have a case against the lender.If they did notify you that they would no longer be accepting automatic payments, or if they notified you of a failed attempt which you would need to pay manually and you didn't bother to do it, then it's a lot more obviously your fault instead of theirs and there's not going to be much you can do about it.
