when all else fails thru professional diagnostics then the only other option is to replace the computer. not knowing what diagnostics have been performed I dont think anyone can give you the correct answer at this point. Also not all mechanics are created equal. You may need to get an older and wiser one.

2 things come to mind. first a trickle charg will take about 8 to 10 hours to fully charge the battery, so you might need to charge it longer to see if the battery takes a full charge. did you try jumping the car with another.
second is it possible the charger was hooked up backwards (pos to neg and vice versa)

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.

I had the same problem "fuel flow error". Ford dealership could not figure it out. They said it was probably a bad harness.

I replaced the main engine computer myself (about $120 for a rebuilt one), and the problem went away.

Do yourself a favor , don't play the swap parts game ! Take it to a quailfied repair shop . Every body thinks they can fix car's .They read a little an assume that's the problem . There are specific test for checking fuel pressure an testing the fuel pump electrical circuit . If you want to fix cars go to school . You can't just replace PCM'S - powertrain control modules , they need to be programmed . This requires a factory scan tool or a J-2534 pass through device .

Just hearing the pump alone is not enough. You may be right and the fuel system could be fine. But you have to know what the line pressure is on fuel injected engines.
When the tune-up was done was the air and fuel filter changed. Sometimes people get a tune-up but the filters were not done or included in the service.
I would guess that it has to do with the fuel system.
Did the engine light come on and if so were any codes stored and/or retrieved?

Tach data error and engine temp data error lights are on, engine wont turn over, but acts like it wants to start.... what do i do?!


you say the engine won't turn over yet it acts like it wants to start which sounds like it is turning over. Please clarify. If it is turning over but not actually starting it could be related to the temp data error. for most cars the two main sensors for fuel delivery are the oxygen sensor and the engine temp sensor. It would help you alot to get a scanner to read the computer. this would reveal a code which says where the problem really is. good luck
