Got in today.. turned the key and it almost sounded like a dead battery. The message says...Traction Fault..ABS Fault...Service Stab system. No warning...I drove it two days ago...everything was fine. This is a 2010 V8 z71 crew cab with 31000 miles. Driven carefully by a 69 year old man. Ok... I do get on it every once in a while to exercise the EFI Live tune by Vengeance Racing.
Anyway I'm ready to call AAA and have carried to the dealer.
Any thoughts on what's going on?

Sounds like the battery is weak. Put a charger on it or jump it and I bet it'll start. The original battery in my 2009 only lasted 3 years before it started to act up. The BCM does all sorts of strange things when the voltage is low.

I would also inspect the ground pack (G106) on the drivers side fender.

Well I've ready been drinkin' to drown my sorrows and to get ready to see Kyle Busch get slammed....so I'll jump it tomorrow... I really appreciate your input. Hopefully that's all it it is. Any thoughts on which battery?
Thanks again, Paul

Have a real nice day my friend

Any factory replacement battery will be fine.

Take it to a parts store and have it load tested. If it fails, purchase it on the spot and they may even keep you from having to get your hands dirty. :)

Plus it will save you a trip back to the store with the bad battery once you've replaced it. :)

Then hopefully all those dash lights will shut off for ya.

Thanks to "08 Canyon" and Rich for all the help in choosing a battery.

Wifey and I are going to proceed with the "jumping" process this morning. ( I said that for all you smart asses out there.) You may now proceed with flaming.
