Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident
we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill
level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to
get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.
If it won't take a charge, then the battery is shorted. You need a new one.

Thanks, Ron

Not the battery
Because it was tested. Actually, it has since decided to simply start.
I was able to drive to a local autozone and have the little thingy connected to it....
Says that lost communication to TMC and misfire

My repyl to you is based on what you told me. What is a "little thingy"?

Thanks, Ron

Haaa, lol. Sorry about thatIt can connected to a machine that tests for problems
I had a code that said random misfire and lost communications with body control module and list communications with TMC

Okay, then you have a BUS line issue that needs to be tested with the scan tool in bi-directional mode to see where to go next. It could be a simple bad connection on the BUS line between the 2 nodes.

Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep our link in case you need me again later on.
