Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So first we need to check the battery and the connections, make sure they are good and if its the original battery have it load tested at your local auto parts store

ok it may have some weird voltages built up in the system so I would suggest to do a total reset, pull neg battery cable then positive, touch both cable ends together for 1 min wait 15 more mins and install positive then negative, and then test drive
