Wife was driving home yesterday and the car died. She coasted to the side of
the highway. Attempted to start again immediately and it fired right up, but
the speedo didn't work right aways. She said that once she got to around
40km/h, the speedo kicked in. She made it home with no further incidents.
I did a few checks when I got home. Checked fluids, checked for CEL.
Nothing. The idle was super low, like around 200RPMs or less.
Then I checked battery posts, and the positive battery clamp was loose.
My question is, could a loose battery post cause the car to stall when at
I understand that the idle is low due to the computer constantly being reset.
Or could this be caused by something else?
