I had nothing when I turned it over...now I jump it and get EPC, ESP, ABS and self leveling warning lights on....do not recall leaving tail gate open or such...will charge battery to see if that is it but wanted to know if the combo of codes above are meaningful to anyone? Thanks in advance for any help out there in allroadland:)

be fine. You might be able to recharge your battery but my experience is that if discharged to nothing and recharged, they are never quite reliable agin and the life expectancy is cut about in half. If the battery is 3 years or more old, it's likely junk anyway. 5 years is about average for a GOOD battery, OEM's about 3.

I'm not sure the age of the battery if it was the original or not, but it just so happens I am due to my indy shop on Wed for new front brake rotors and pads (don't get me started again on why) and I will probably just have them replace it then and reset all the codes. Thank you for the prompt response, the allroad board is the BEST!
You may want to consider aftermarket?

The ECS rotors and mintex redbox pads I'm getting are half price of the OEMs I was quoted by my dealer. Given the warping/dusting problems of OEM and the testimonials here this should be automatic. Perhaps uber_ar can mention this in the FAQ.

Unfortunately out here in the sticks finding the right indy dealer with the right products to put on this orphan is hard. I was going to go Zimmerman drilled rotors (this is the front remember) and better pads (my shop won't use the others) but I guess I am going to go Zimmerman OEM style for about $200 less...again if I weren't so uncertain about having this car over 86k when my extended warranty wears out I would go the higher quality, which I am sure is also a better value in the long run. Thanks for the input. I just wish any of you folks lived near as I'm a pretty quick study and I'd learn how to do some of this myself....like when they want $50 to change out the very expensive battery...I said for that I'd get dirty myself and do it and told them it is easy to get to and they lowered it by half...this is what I have to deal with here. Sorry for the rant:)
