    Are you SURE there are no "C" (chassis) codes?

    Always post the code definitions along with the codes. No one has them memorized. You want the OBDII link in the DTC sticky.

    Yup, I'd suspect the battery. There is a LOT of electronics in these cars and low voltage wakes up the gremlins to come out an play and wreak havoc.

    Re: Traction problem

    You should get at least 12.6 volts with the key in the OFF position, and 13.6-14 with the key in the ON position.
