Why were the sensors re set? Does not make sense.

Why was the battery replaced? Did you have this issue prior to the repair?

You have some other issues. You need to have the alternator checked to see if that is working correctly.

As far as the sensors, which still makes no sense, if they can retrieve codes for us, that would help

Code C0551 ABS/TCS Module not programmed due to low voltage no other faults were found so they cleared codes and programmed module $475.00

Yea, anyways whatcha think the prob. Maybe if it was the alternator wouldn't the new battery be dead cause it has lots of power from thr battery and the starter is turning over it not crancking tho wtflizle I am frustrated about it

Ok, the battery is good, then you may have a starter motor issue. I dont understand why all this happened from this event. It should not have effected this system.

You will need to have them check the starter for power when you turn the key to start,

the 551 is a program code but still puzzled about why it lost the programming to start with.

O well, I hate to say it but another trip to the dealer
