Nothing shows on computer diagnostic scan
other mechanics stumped
Hey there Bob
Wowow! Ok…hate to admit it, but I’m stumped too. With that many things happening at once, I would suspect a grounding issue…or lack of a ground circuit…either in the battery/alternator or on the engine computer itself.
You just don’t see THAT many things flash at once unless there is a lack of power problem to the computer, or a lack of a ground which can cause all kinds of warning lights to come on.
If you own Alldata, you might check to see if there is a technical service bulletin out on this, but I am not aware of one. I would start by checking all the powers and grounds at the computer, battery and alternator.
Here is the Alldata link info if you are interested
