HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:
- Whats the alternator output at the battery?

Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.

Hi.
Are there other dash lights coming on? If so, I would say that your ABS module is at fault. We are seeing a lot of these fail and they knock out the serial data line.
Change-over units are available, contact your nearest Injectronics agent and they will be able to help you out.

All of these codes instument panel. abs . spark retard monitoring data link. tps signal. srs no fault codes bcm no faut codes engine no fault codes trans no fault codes. Lights that stay on srs and traction regards XXXXX XXXXX
Expert:  Matt replied 5 years ago.
This is really a strange problem and I haven't had this combination of codes come up before.
In just about every other case I can think of when strange things like this happen it turns out to be ABS module. I suppose it could be possible that you have an instrument cluster fault, as this has it's own control unit inside.
Other than that, I can only suggest a break in the wire that handles serial data.

Good luck, I hope you sort out your problem soon!

Matt.
