Re: I think my ECU reset while driving
Today I finally got around to the truck (been driving the car since the issue). Opened the door, and the deck was clicking like it was trying to eject the cd, which was weird because the key wasn't in the ignition. I went to start the truck and nothing. I figured the battery was dead. I first thought that there was a short in the remote wire for the deck because it was definitely powered on. So, I pulled my car around to jump the truck. Opened the car hood, grabbed the jumper cables, opened the truck hood and saw tons of blue corrosion on the battery. Now, I've never seen blue corrosion, its always been yellow/orange. So I decided to clean the corrosion off of the battery (my truck door was open at this point). As soon as I cleaned the corrosion off, I heard the open door chime. Got into the truck and it fired right up. I guess the problem the whole time was corrosion. Now, I have another question. What would cause blue corrosion? Like I said, I've never seen blue corrosion in the past. Am I out of hot water, or do I still have an issue here?
