Don't say his name. If you say it three times he appears.
I think the PC member "who shall not be named" is now hanging out of the Leaf boards and we're safe for now.
No DTCs on the paperwork?
WHO/WHAT IS EVPV? I'm new here..is it bad?
And 2009prius, No, no DTCs were listed on the paperwork!
Darn it, that's twice. No one say his name a third time.
Sounds like the OP's problem was traction control kicking in due to the low tire and/or temp spare. I didn't see anything in the dealer report that they actually fixed. Clearing the codes may have been all that was necessary.
*clicks heels together* EVPV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for following up. It does sound as though the nearly flat tire was the cause; a good reminder for everyone to go check their spares, before they are needed.
Since you may want toreplace that junk jack, I would suggest a elec 12V that works off the accessory plug. ( Bought at Harbor freight ) It works great, but I still carry a mechanical jack from a Civic I once had, as a precaution. After the original tire was reinstalled, a reboot "may" have removed all warning lights. :cheer2:
Do you have more info on this 12V jack? I don't think I've ever seen one when I've been in HFT before. I did just buy a nice, low profile racing jack from them a few months ago for swapping my winter and summer tires on and off the car. My small little floor jack just wasn't getting it high enough and was a lot less sturdy.
I have never seen this Electric Jack, but will keep my eyes out for one! And the REALLY weird thing was the fact that it was accelerating AFTER I took the spare off too.
Just ask, you may have to order if they have run out.
