Default Re: Battery Change...Lots of dash warning lights

I tried disconnecting the battery and no dice. I tried my scan tool when the problem first popped up and it didnt show any codes. I will get some more miles on it and try again.

Lots of warning lights often means you are low on voltage.

2 likely causes are the battery needs to be better connected or it wasn't fully charged when you got it.

I put the new battery on a charger before i installed it. Checked it before i put the cables on and had 13+ volts.
