A week ago I changed my battery myself. It was hooked up just as the last one but it wasnt starting right away. After several tries and finally getting it started I went to get my emissions test 2 days later. At that time it said they could not read and was told that the system has reset and must drive a while. I drove several km/mi as I was told and reset the time on the clock etc and found the following day the time was incorrect. I thought something may have happened but nothing much had changed. 6 days later I had the system cleaned (unsure of name) because my car was cutting out when coming to a stop and gearing down. This seemed to have fixed the problem. Now 8 days after the battery change I start and drive the car no problem. I come back to my car open the door using the power lock and start the car. The dash lights up and cuts out completely. NO POWER. I try one more time immediately and no response. I wait 5mins and it works but again I notice the time and stations reset. I go to get my emissions test right after and they tell me it cant be read again. I know at this point I have driven at least 300km.
I'm no mechanic put I'm assuming its electrical but I don't know where to start since the diagnostics test shows nothing and it not doing the same thing when the mechanic looks at.
have the same problem?
