That code's definition is "battery disconnected within last 50 starts." If your battery has died or recently been replaced that might set the code. Also are your terminals corroded? If so, clean them using a solution of baking soda & water. After everything is dry, coat both terminals with Vaseline. They'll never corrode again. Also check your connections at the alternater. After doing this, using a scan tool (because you're OBD II), clear the PCM (computer). Drive the car & see if the code resets. HTH. -Jim
