I have been experiencing issues with the onboard computer.

While driving, the Power Steering goes out, followed by the transmission which shifts late when this is happening, also, the Traction control goes out and the Alarm activates.

Talking to one of my buddies who tried to run a diagnostic on the system, I should reset the computer to see if that fixes the issue?

Does this sound right? And also, how do I reset it?


Thanks!

Probably will try to flash computer and is good first step. Have him check for codes, write down then flash. If it fails post codes will advise.

Reseting the computer seems to have fixed the isssue. Thanks! All I had to do was pull the battery for an hour.

Great news did not know battery removal would have any effect. Will enter that in my memory bank.
