Cold start problems

Recommended Posts

So I went on vacation this weekend and had to leave the truck at the airport. No way to plug it in. I have known for a while that the batteries were getting a little weak but like a :banghead: I figured I could squeeze one more trip out of them. When I got back last night it was a toasty -7* F in Fargo, ND. Batteries didn't have enough juice to crank her over. Had a guy give me a jump and we finally got it started after a couple of times worth of cranking a few seconds, let the batteries recharge, run the grids. Now the check engine light is on. Gonna go by a autozone or something and use a scanner. Ill post what I find. I got some new batteries today so I shouldn't have a problem anymore hopefully:pray: Didn't have a CEL before I parked it there for the weekend so I'm interested to find out what codes are hiding in there. I was gonna use the key trick but I wanna see EVERYTHING that's in there. Ill keep ya posted....

Too bad you aren't closer. I could turn your CEL off for you.

It might just be p0562, system voltage low. I've come across that one a few times on Volvos with dead batteries.

Ok so I pulled the codes. P1689, P0232, and P0215. I haven't gotten a chance to look them up yet. I cleared them and none have come back at the moment. I drove about 15 miles after clearing them. Thanks for that MnTom!!

When I replace the batteries this weekend I am planning on checking/cleaning the ground connections. Sounds like I might be having a bad connection somewhere. I am not sure there is anything that would link these codes apart from bad grounds maybe. Thanks for that code info!!

Don't know why that happened^^^^ I am just hoping I don't have an ECM issue :pray::spend:

Most likely from the batts going dead. I've seen random codes be thrown from low voltage. If you cleared them and they haven't returned I wouldn't give it another thought. JR

I would have to agree with the above.

I am straight south. About 15 minutes over the border from Minn. St. Croix Falls area. Shell lake isn't too far.
