This morning, I went and double checked the battery terminals. I opted not to dig into the grounds as frankly I was intimidated by the degree of work necessary to reach that part of the engine.No problem sir!
A loose batt terminal can cause ALL sorts of bizzare problems in any vehicle. I'm willing to bet that is the issue, as typically the simplest solution is usually the right one. But there very well could be a faulty plug, a loose ground, or a million other manufacturing defects that could have happened during assembly.
I would def, still have it given the once over by a service shop and tell them the details of the problem, how you resolved it, and why you feel it is electrical in nature. Then hopefully someone more familiar with the wiring of the engine can ensure that everything is buttoned up properly, since it is under warranty.
Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.
Went for a drive on the same offending road as yesterday. After about 4 miles of washboard, the CEL and ESC lights came on again. Engine rpm drop again at 3k.
The "key dance" does not display any code. Tried a couple of sequences.
I suppose on the bright side I eliminated the battery terminals as a causal factor. I did check that they were still tight.
I have not reset the computer, and am not sure if I should. If I do, will I lose the history of the CEL events?
I have a service appointment scheduled for 7/18/14.
