YOU ARE MOST LIKELY EXPERIENCING A BATTERY OR CHARGING ISSUE

HAVE THE BATTERY AND CHARGING SYSTEM CHECKED AT A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE. THEY WILL USUALLY DO THIS FOR FREE!

IT WILL NOT BE LONG THAT YOUR RIG WILL NOT START, YOU WILL JUMP START IT OR CHARGE IT WITH YOUR PERSONAL BATTERY CHARGER. IT MAY RUN FOR A WHILE

BUT.

THE SYMPTOMS WILL NOT GO AWAY!

WHAT WILL MAKE THEM GO AWAY IS TO COMPLETELY DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FROM YOUR RIG. FOR 10 MINUTES OR SO

AND ONE OF THE FOLLOWING WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO BE DONE

REPLACE/ REPAIR THE ALTERNATOR

REPAIR PROBLEM PREVENTING THE VEHICLE FROM CHARGING--FUSIBLE LINK, WIRING, ETC

REPLACE DEFECTIVE BATTERY, WITH A FULLY CHARGED ONE

OR AFTER REPAIRS, FULLY CHARGE YOUR EXISTING "GOOD" BATTERY AND INSTALL

REGARDLESS OF YOUR ACTIONS, THE COMPUTER WILL NOT RESET UNTIL THE BATTERY IS DISCONNECTED AND A "GOOD TO GO", FULLY CHARGED BATTERY IS RE-INSTALLED

KEEP US INFORMED. MAYBE IT'S SIMPLE LIKE A LOOSE WIRE OR SOMETHING

GOOD LUCK
