: FYI battery dying

06-22-10, 08:49 PM
For those of you who run your batteries out my car went in a limp mode and wouldn't shift.

If you saw a silver v going down 635 in Irving with his flashers on that was me :P

4k rpm, doing 40mph, windows down, heat on high to keep temps down.

Fix is to clear all the codes because power was lost to the tranny module.

Needless to say I will be carrying my efilive cable from now on just in case :P

Could you not have just undone the neg terminal on the battery in the rear trunk? No tools are needed to do that. It would have then reset the tcm on its low bat shut off.

Is this a stock car or is there more to the story?
