Hello. When you have this many codes you either have an issue with the voltage system in the vehicle being low due to a bad connection, a battery that is failing, or a faulty alternator.

It can also be a failure in the fuse box or commonly the main control module. I usually start by removing the battery and load testing it and also with voltage drop testing the battery cables. If all of those are fine I charge the battery and reinstall it and test the alternator. If that is also fine, then I use a scan tool to monitor the functions of the computer as that would be the most likely cause if all of the other voltage readings are correct. If you are going to have this issue with all of these codes repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the underlying issues for each code and move forward with the correct repairs.
