    Yes, I removed it right before starting this thread. So it's been a few days.

    Another Update: they came back on just before I got home. Seems intermittent.

    Could be related to battery temperature. Are you monitoring it?

    Same codes? Or just the same warning lights?

    No, I'm not monitoring the battery temp.

    At least the same lights, I will have to recheck later today to see if the codes are the same.

    The idea of the codes in #16 being related to battery temperature has just left me staring blankly into space, powerless to save any day at all.
