Check Transaxle light?


#1

My battery died yesterday and after I got my car jump started the check transaxle light (exclamation point) came on and my A/C stopped blowing cold air. I checked all of the fuses and they are all fine. What could be causing this?

The problem might be caused from the battery dying and thereby the computer/modules have lost their adaptive memory and need to go thru a relearn process. You can read what disconnecting or a dead battery can do to modern vehicles with these components here. http://www.aa1car.com/library/battery_disconnect_problems.htm

Drive the vehicle for a while and see if the computers/modules will go thru the relearn process. If not, a scan tool may be required to reprogram the computers/modules.
