I had a similar problem with my Toyota Camry just a month or two ago. (maybe)

I would park it, and when I tried to start it again I would get NO power. I called roadside assistance and they sent someone out to jump me, but then it died again while I was driving, again, everything electrical cut out suddenly.

There was a bad ground wire on the alternator. A neighbor had it fixed for me in about 20 minutes.

Gear display data error, check traction control and fuel flow data error


CHECK THE PCM DIODE. Apparently these get loose over time.... I had the same symptoms, car would randomly not start. Drove me crazy for months. Then one day I was pulling the relays in and out and noticed the PCM Diode suddenly made a CLICK when I pushed it down. Apparently it was creeping out of it's socket over the years. All I had to do was push it back in, and voila! problem went away!!

Btw, in my car, Lincoln Continental 1999, the diode is to the left of Relay 7 (PCM Relay). This solved the mysterious "GEAR DISPLAY ERROR", CHECK TRACTION CONTROL, etc., and PATS code 16.
