I got up today, my car was dead.
No remote start, locks or trunk, had to use the key for the first time since I bought it.
Tried the ignition, key wouldn't come out, wound up getting a ride to school.
We came back tried to jump it, power came on, and got
"Starting Disabled Service Throttle"
She wouldn't do anything else.
Took out the key, and disconnected jumpers, and she died again immediately.
I know she wouldn't want to live this way, hooked up to jumpers and monitors, so do I just take her out back and shoot her?
Any help would be appreciated.
When we tried to jump start it, all the electrical systems came up, it just wouldn't start.
Since I don't want to run out and replace my battery if I can just charge it, do you think if I used one of those plug in charger things I might get a better result, or same as jumping?
I really hope it's nothing major. I just bounced my rent check and I just can't get ahead on bills right now. IRS needs to hurry up with my money!
How did you get a "starting disabled, service throttle" message? through a scanner, the dash, or some other way? I'm not sure how much variety there is with the in-dash displays for trouble lights and codes on the 06+.
If you haven't had it scanned... you should. Maybe it'll turn something up.
