So you drove it to autozone? Make sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all clean and tight. Check the starter circuit.

I couldn't find those codes in MOD. I did find some of those codes in a generic list, did not have codes listed according to year--make--model. I can't be sure they pertain to your vehicle? You might check the computer for voltage and grounds.

No these are the codes they gave me I think its a wiring problem just removed the radio and hook it back up but all lights came on like normal but soon as I hit the brakes it turned off I think wiring maybe check voltage and grounds on what part

The starter S terminal goes hot with key in the crank position. The starter B terminal is hot all the time. Any testing, make sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the e-brake is set.

You only need to check starter circuit circuit, if it won't crank. Otherwise, I don't know.
