    Default ETC light

    Hey all, first post...
    Yesterday, my wife went to the store, no issues. She gets back to her car and starts it. After about 10 seconds it sputtered and stalled out. Since then, it will crank but won't turn over and the TEC light is on. Did the key dance and it comes up with nothing. I've searched Google for an hour and came up with nothing. Anyone have any idea what it could be?

    She has an 07 Caliber with the 2.0. Roughly 40K miles

    Have you done the first tune up on it yet? Plugs MUST be changed every 30,000 miles. Stay with the OEM plugs. They're in there for a reason. And you might try resetting the TIPM by disconnecting both battery cables and holding them together for 15 minutes. Clean them and the battery posts then reattach them and see what happens. These cars are also very sensitive to voltage drops. If that is the OEM battery, odds are it's on the way out. Get it load tested at your closest auto parts store. If it fails, don't be surprised.
