That is great news. Baba, once you get the hood open and get a jump start. You need to leave the vehicle running at idle or while driving for at least one hour. Also, the vehicle may run a little differently till the computer relearns, which can take 5-10 days. Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed. Press reply if you need to follow up. Moose

Thanks appreciate it
