What does these cods means, U0073 U0101


XL-7 (dash 7?)
"engine not starting" sure... but that is step 2, not 1.
but you failed to say does it crank robustly
yes./no?
if NO, those silly dash messages are a waste of time.

ever herd of jumper cable starts, or calling AAA and asking the man do jump start your dead battery?
are headlights dim?
charge your dead battery with a charger?
or replace it with borrowed charged battery?
or if dischanged, and you charge it and it starts now,does the alternator work> and give you, 13.3v to 15v battery voltage
no? then dont drive too far or this will strand you. as battery dies again,



is the battery good, 12.6vdc rested and 11v min, cranking?
if the battery gets too weak, it cranks too slow and voltage falls too much and the ECU/PCM/BCM (brains) will fail and dump lots of codes.
one code is low battery.
the FSM book covers all code, buy one or look at alldata.com?

0101 =
Lost Communication With TCM 0073 (can-bus network failure)
The module setting the DTC has attempted to establish communications on the serial data circuits more than 3 times. BCM, DRR, HVSM, PPS, PSCM, Radio, RCDLR, ROS, RSA

1997 gmc sierra. interior light left on, battery dead, jump started,ran for 15 min. tried to restart after shutting off only thing that happened was drivers lock locks and 3 guages, oil , gas, and pressure...


You probably didn't run it long enough to charge up the battery. Put a voltmeter on it and see if it needs charging, or get it charged up, or get another jump and run it for a half hour and then see if battery is charged up enough to start the engine.

If the security light is on or flashing, you may need to reset the security system.

2000 Chrysler Sebring w/year old battery.  Advise, what could have occurred when AAA jump me???  Left tiny interior light on under my mirror--battery dead.  After AAA came, I let it run


I doubt the service person did anything wrong. In today's cars with both engine and body computers, jump starting a car can be risky.
You're better off having the battery charged for an hour or so then trying to start it.
You may have to have the body computer scanned and possibly flashed to get everything working again. The body computer controls everything you mentioned. It could have lost some of the factory programming when the system was dead.

2003 chev suburban.battery went dead.replaced battery,now it wont crank and security light blinks


I have ran into this problem many times. Insert the key, and turn it to run. After 10 minutes the security lamp should go out. Turn the key off, and then back to run and let it sit another 10 minutes until the security lamp goes out again. Now repeat this one more time for another 10 minutes until the lamp goes out again. This should be a total of 30 minutes so make sure your battery is fully charged when you start the procedure. After the third time and the lamp going out you should be able to restart the vehicle.

2006 Toyota Rav 4-My battery went from fine to dead in :45. Help.


Answering your questions in order:
  1. No, there's no such device to prevent the car from starting; a battery that requires a jump start would require more than 5 minutes running time to recharge. The battery needs to be charged to work again, (unless it has a dead cell, inexpensive battery testers will confirm). A jump start is still possible but wouild require leaving the jumper cables on for at least 15-30 minutes to provide enough of a charge to start the Rav again. Charging on a battery charger is preferable.
  2. Yes; short trips and lack of use will kill a battery over time.
  3. Yes; Here is a link to the basics of checking a charging system http://www.aa1car.com/library/charging_checks.htm
In summary, most should get more than 3 years out of their battery. You've already determined that the acid levels in the battery are good (most don't even check for fluid levels). Constant charging and discharging will kill a battery and this isn't apparent in your case.
If a battery charger isn't handy, try hooking up the jumper cables and leave the other car running for at least 15 minutes. I hope this answers your questions. Best of luck.
