jamesg Posted July 16, 2005 Report Share Posted July 16, 2005 NO CURRENT CODES, ALL HISTORY Codes IO52 KEEP ALIVE MEMORY ERROR, PO16 VOLTAGE OUT OF RANGE, PO109 KEEP ALIVE MEMORY BATTERY LOST POWER, PO110 GENERATOR L-TERM CURCUIT PROBLEM. READ OUT ALSO STATES NO BATTERY CHARGE AND TRACTION DISABLED. BAD DIE HARD BATTERY OR ALTERNATOR???? I went to a Funeral today, after the Eugolgy at the church, the AC running on HI, and at the request of the Police and Funeral Director, the emergency lights blinking and head lights on. SUNNY Raniny, hot muggy southern weather. Car running fine until we reach the cemetery in the sunny rainy conditions. Traction Disable light comes on, the car shuts off and would not start, the factory mobile phone beeping low battery. That has never happen before. I got out of the car went to the grave side services. Car started back up after the grave side honors. I then drove from the cemetery, OK I said fine maybe the deceased was reminding me of a incident that I announced a promotion for him getting his hopes up and it turned out I errored, the promotion was for someone else in the organization with the exact same first name, last name and the same job title. As his supervisor I had to go back and apologize. A good man he was, he for gave me, for one in a million someone in the same organization, same last, first name and same job promotion, however the kicker different cities. Anyways when the grave side services were over, the car started right up. Relieved me of the ideal of being stuck in the cemetery at dark. I drove about 5 miles in the wrong direction in another city and the car shut down again in the 5:00 pm after work traffic. Of course I pushed that big 03 STS a few feet by myself off the roadway until I got help. I got a jump start and the car started up. When I put it in gear and it cut off again. Time for a tow truck. I got the car to my house and tried to charge the 3 year old die hard battey. Car started right up, ran for over 5 minutes and cut off. Read out on panel, Battery NO CHARGE. Before I go buy an alternator, any other suggestions? Could it be the battery???? PLZ ADV ASAP!!! All that power running at once and the hot sunny rainy muggy weather must have shorted something out!!!! I know the alternator is recharging the battery. v/r JG Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
