    Multiple error codes

    Following on from my earlier thread about problems with the audio in my 2011 Supersport, it's all gone a bit pear-shaped.

    We drove to McDonalds today, picked up some burgers, leaving the family in the car for five minutes. Afterward, the car wouldn't start. Simply didn't respond to the start button. So I locked it and unlocked it, and then it started, but threw a whole load of errors in the display - gearbox fault, stability control, handbrake, blindspot monitoring, everything. So, working on the previous theory of a possibly faulty battery, I drove slowly to Halfords and bought a new one. Fitted the battery, and then it started fine. The check engine light was still on, so I used an OBD tool and a copy of Torque Pro on a tablet to read off the codes - P00C6 - Powertrain, U0001 - Network, and U0103 - Network. These all seemed to come from the previous problem, so I cleared them and the check engine light went out. Great, I thought. So I turned off the engine, loaded up everybody in the car again, and pressed the start button.

    Nothing. Same as before. After cycling the locks a couple of times, it eventually started, but threw the same host of faults. From the OBD2 tool, I have -

    P057B - Powertrain
    U0001 - Network
    U0103 - Network
    B10AC - Body
    P00C6 - Powertrain
    P0500 - Powertrain
    U0100 - Network
    U0101 - Network
    U0104 - Network
    U0121 - Network
    U0128 - Network
    U0140 - Network
    U0151 - Network
    U0155 - Network
    U0402 - Network
    U0122 - Network

    So a whole raft of stuff. I'm going to take off the new battery and give it a good charge overnight. Other than that, any suggestions..?

    You are on the right track by giving the new battery a good charge, they don't always come fully charged when they have been on a shelf for a while.
    See how it goes when you have done that. In my experience, that should cure the problem.
    Good luck.

    Thanks, Corbelliere.

    While I was waiting for the battery to charge, I had a rummage around the engine compartment fuse box, to look for dodgy connections. I found the big bundle of cables that feeds up under the fuse box was very wet. It appears the drain at the base of the driver's side wiper is designed to dump water into the void under the fuse box, which seems a bit daft to me. Anyway, I cleaned it up a bit, checked none of the cables were chafing, and also checked all the connections I could find around the battery in the boot. Then took a deep breath and reconnected the new battery...

    It started, and didn't throw any errors. I'm going to take it for a longish run this afternoon and see if the problem recurs. Both times it's gone properly mad have been when I've had people sat in the car for ten minutes with the engine off, which could be a sign there was a battery drain going on that just tipped it over the edge. So fingers crossed...

    I had this, turned out to be the battery hadn't been connected properly which had in turn fried the alternator. Obviously the battery wasn't getting any charge.

    Would you get errors if the alternator was toast?

    I did. As because the battery wasn't charging, it began to throw up all the errors as the components shut down

    Thanks.

    All good so far, on a couple of 45 minutes drives with the new battery. Keeping all fingers crossed...

    Had a bunch of errors on warm-starting this afternoon. Turned the engine off and then on again - all fine once more. This is somewhat annoying.

    Where the wires were wet, I would give them a good spray of WD40.
    This also sounds like a low battery charge and if those wires are damp, I guess it could cause some form of voltage discharge.
    Good luck with it.

    Had the same error at the carwash today. Curiously, it's only a subset of the previous warnings, just brakes: EBD and traction control-related, so I wonder if it's to do with the rear pads being replaced on Friday. I gather they had a bit of a fiddle to obtain a replacement warning wire from Jaguar after the original broke.

    But that's a good shout about WD40-ing the wires. I gave the new battery about 12 hours on charge overnight. Do you think it might need more?
