I guess you don't know what code 53 is or don't feel it's related. Solenoid, relays, voltage regulator and starter needs to be checked for starting problems. For a newer car there is so much manufacturer profit assurance in the cars it could be a long list of items to pick from to fix.

Greetings j sproles,

Your code 53 that you mentioned means that you have system overvoltage and indicates that there is a basic generator problem and will set if voltage at ECM ignition input pin is greater than 17.1 volts for two seconds. [img]graemlins/beers.gif[/img]

Hope this helps a little!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
