So about a month ago I had a problem with my truck not wanting to start when it was cold. Then all of a sudden the battery went to crap. Luckily it was still under warranty and thus I got a free new replacement. I thought all my problems were fixed. However it still didn't like to start when it had been sitting long enough for the engine to cool off completely. ( 1 hour or so)
I started doing som research and found possibilities of the mass airflow sensor could be bad, etc etc.... Then one day when I was driving to class my check engine light came on and i got a message on the DIC that said "Traction Control Off', "Stabilitrack Off", Service Stabilitrack" and "Service Traction Control".
After driving it like this for about a week I finally took it in to the shop. They called me about 3 hours later and said they found the problem. The fuel trim codes were wrong. Basically the computer thought that the gas in my tank had 55% alcohol in it, when in fact it was 0%. (unleaded) They reset the codes and reprogrammed the computer and so far it seems to have fixed everything surprisingly enough.
I just thought I would post this here in case anyone else had a similar problem and were stuck on what to do.
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
