I started up my cat a few days ago and a get ABS light check engine and sport mode flashing. My scan gaugeII said code P1700....I looked it up and it said Malfunction Indicator Lamp requested by trans control module. wtf that mean? i wonder if it could be the vechile speed sensor? The thing that really has me stuck is that i got in after and started it up and everything was dead and car barely wanted to idle, and i couldn give it any gas. the cluster didnt work and my battery was dead. i got a feeling gonna be another expensive fix.

This sounds an awful lot like it is your alternator.
