Bad battery? Clear the code and drive it around and see if it goes away.

Check voltage of battery first: low voltage can throw all kinds of codes. New Battery should be 13.7-14.2 volts.

That may work, but could be an expensive lesson ZME. Straining the starter and other components with low voltage will wear them prematurely. I just replaced my oem '13 battery with an 800 cca (75 more than oem) for $100.00. Cheap insurance, and jut what you got to do with your toys: maintain them. 4-5 years on a battery, especially at $100, is nuttin'.

Check the battery every year it’s perfect. A maintained battery will last a very long time, the key word is maintained. Maintaining the acid level/ changing it, and using a top notch charger that exercises the battery. For a battery that’s only getting used 6 months a year of the warmest months, and less than 1800 miles a year, it will be just fine.

Advance Auto with code (I had 30%) will get you right near $100.00.

Thanks everyone for the answers and different way to get it back to sniff
Late yesterday I went for a little drive and when returned home I turned the car off for a few minutes (~ 15) and restarts and just like that it was all clear !!! Just like that , just as added info this is my second battery , itís about 2 years old , I think that because I donít drive it much , and in the last 3 weeks Iíve just about pull it from the garage early AM. and bring it back in late in the days the battery went down . But itís all good again and just needs more miles I guess
Thanks everyone for the input , stay safe out there

Thanks again
