yes...the battery and cables are often overlooked...they must be able to pull 40 amps ....that is why they are so big and hearty...so connections....they must be cleaned with a wirebrush...even if clean, the battery must have 12 12.5 volts and will put out 40 amps for the starter~ connection from battery to motor block and the one that goes to the fender/chassis...these must be happy with 40 amps~...in summation...get a new battery if yours is older then 6...and new cables...black splits in two one for the engine one for the chassis...be sure these are there and happy~ systems will return to normal once served correct voltage and amperage~ these systems are fussy....even more so with modern airbags, communication systems etc.~


Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.
