Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The P0562 is a low battery/system voltage DTC. Most likely the battery. If that is the original battery, then you most likely need a new one. As far as the other codes, the P0700 means that a transmission code exists, and needs to be checked wit a scan tool that can read transmission DTC's. The P0440 and P0442 means that there is an evaporative emission system leak somewhere. Maybe just a loose/bad fuel cap so check that first. But before doing anything, get a good battery in the truck and then see which codes come back.

I hope this information helps, and if so, would you please take a minute to rate my service using the just answer star rating system? I would really appreciate it and can still help you with this even after you rate me.

Thank you!
