Hi Moose, It says "Initialize wait to shift" i read online its say change the 12v battery and I did but not with AGM battery. Would that make a diiferance?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.

When trying to start will it at least produce a click noise?

Do the electronics inside the car work?

Hvae you done any of the diag steps for this car yet?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It's does not make a starter clicking sound. Everything works all electronics. And I just used my scan tool and give me those codes
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.


Of all of your codes the only one related to getting the vehicle to crank is this one.

Can you do those tests and report back?


Thanks for letting me help you & for leaving me a ~5 STAR EXCELLENT~rating when ready. Rating results in the website paying me from the question fee you have already paid. Although I appreciate customers saying "Thank You" that alone does not result in me being compensated if you were pleased.

Thanks Chris

Just a little confused what exactly you would like me to check?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Checking a fuse in the fuse box? Under the hood? Thanks
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.

Diagnosing this is going to be far more difficult than replacing a fuse. Since your not able to perform the tests outlined at the bottom of the file I sent. I do not feel like this is a concern I am going to be able to help you address. I will remove myself from this post and let another try to help you.
