Peake Code 6b - Pre-drive check of drive-by-wire system
I went to start my car to head to work today and have an indecipherable warning on my dash (dead pixels). Car is in limp mode, cant gas it and cant bring RPMs up. Peake tells me 6b. I have had this 2 times in the past, let car sit for 5-10 minutes and it then works fine.
Any ideas on what might be causing this? Seems to have happened after leaving car sit in garage most of weekend.
I am off to try to start it again, crossing my fingers that it works, as I don't have alternate transportation to work right now..
If anyone has any ideas what might be causing this intermittent problem please let me know!
