You may need to adapt the throttle body if the battery was disconnected, it can affect the shifting too.

01336 - Data Bus for Comfort System: Faulty
01315 - Transmission Control Module: No Communications

00592 - Seat Belt Switch; Passenger (E25): Resistance too High
01218 - Side Airbag Igniter; Front Passenger Side (N200): Resistance too High

Could you have missed any connectors when you put the seat back in ?
I thought about that too but I did double check that

I guess I can google that, but how does one do that?

do yourself and all the contributors a huge favor, unplugging one connector at a time ! , check and clean the rest of them while you are there.....and great work by the way, a Sherlock Holmes of the RCMP ! I have to double check some issues and go into that area, so am going to use these posts as a reference..... thanks
Definitely in the plans... like I mentioned; there’s about 110 connections to check in there. There’s probably other functions that’ll come to life when I’m done under there

Looks like you have your plenty to keep you occupied for a while with all those connectors.
I hope you are applying something like a dielectric grease to all those pins.

I did get some dimethylpolysiloxane with the spark plugs, so I’m set

Fixed it! ABS is no longer an issue. About 50 (not as many as I expected) connections later, with dielectric jelly on every cleaned connection.

Most of the other plugs are simple and don’t have the tiny pins like the TCM connector

The plug big pin section separates from the small section by sliding the small pins forward

100042


100043



100041


The top of the small pins slides off to the side, away from the snaps on the front and back (release both to slide the top)

100044


100045


The pins themselves come out by inserting a micro micro screwdriver into the slot above the pin from the front of the plug; that releases the catch and then you can pull out the lead. Same with the socket side.

Did you use a special fluid to clean the pins?
No. If there was corrosion, I’d use 400 wet/dry sandpaper to reveal the metal. Otherwise just wipe the pins clean. Then apply the dimethylpolysiloxane goop. Always seat plug carefully.

Question:

I am still trying to find the source of the low voltage code.
Pulled the TCM harness apart. Cleaned the pins.

Is there a ground/earth point in the car that I should check and clean?

I vaguely remember Chief saying something in the A pillar. I am not sure.

I am inclining toward replacing the whole wiring with junk yard one by removing the carpet .

The OPs low voltage code was caused by a corroded connector on the RHS "A" panel.
There are a number of connectors and a couple of ground connections in that area, you should check them all.
Read all of this thread.

It would be much better to start your own thread.
