crazy dash or?
OK this morning I used the remote start on my truck to start it, truck had been sitting for 3 days outside, , weather has been NUTS< the past 3 days here! 20 degree's, rain, sleet snow, ice, and into the 70's?
it was DRY this morning and about 48 degree's!
truck started fine, I let it idle about 5 minutes before heading outside
got in truck all seemed ok
inserted key fob, turn to RUN position, put truck in reverse to back up some
and dash idiot lights started flashing all sorts of things
one said, ANTI LOCK BRAKES NEED SERVICE, next was Traction control lights flashing?
then all my parking sensors stated NOT working or on?
the on switches for them(have two) both were lighted up and would NOT allow me to change them, I could push them and NOTHING would happen!
Check Engine light was also on?
put truck in park, and still coul;d not turn on/OFF the parking ensor's
everything seemed fine? truck ran great before parking it?
NO puddles of anything under it??
SO< I shut the truck off, and re started and ALL is GOOD, no idiot lights on and everything seemed to be workinga s it should??
truck has 44,000 miles on it, and a 2016
any clue what this is about??
and I'll add a second issue I had happen recently!
and forgive me if this is known info and I just don;t know about it?
I was driving down a rural back road, was expecting fan important phone call some time during the day, and as always, got the call as soon as I started driving
SO, I pulled off the side of the road(low traffic road here) as I knew I would need to write a few things down!
I was stopped on the side of the road, and for what ever reason I just sat there with my foot on the brake, truck trans in PARK, but again I had my foot still on the brake petal
call lasted about 5 minutes, never shut truck motor off, BUT when I TRIED to put truck back in DRIVE, it would NOT let me, the shifter had been locked out , ZERO movement was allowed??
Had to again shut truck off and re start and all was fine??
I gather MAYBE something to do with me sitting so long in park with my foot on the brake(5 min or less)
but never had this happen before, so, made me wonder WTH< is this normal, safety feature I am NOT aware of ??
SO< any thoughts??
besides get my foot off the brake when in park LOL
thanks in advance!
