    i read your entire post and I have had similar, but my abs and traction control coming on and then going into limp mode turned out to be a bad ground connection at battery. these electrical gremlins are a nightmare. end of 2018 I ended up replacing the ecm when the car went nuts, and shop couldnt figure out what was up. I get absolutely no check engine lights, no codes, nothing. it just stalled and we have been driving our ccadi that has no heat unless we are moving so now that i see I an just keep getting it started I will drive with heat instead. this truck runs great smooth and what not, but man the gremlins are crazy. I had the trans control module removed after I bought it and the wafers replaced or the little membranes that go in it. but I dont have any trans codes. my buddy has snap on scanner and it doesnt come up with anything. havent done live data yet but we will. I will buy a scanner here soon.

    Based on your input, I'm suspecting a faulty throttle position sensor (built into the throttle body) or an intermittent open circuit in the harness, like at the plug.

    This stalling while rolling to stop torque converter problem and the electrical problems caused by ground connection problems are well documented here on the forum. Many threads about dirty MAF and throttle body cleaning as well and a bunch of fuel pump problem scenarios. IMO, these seem to be a top 5 of many hair pulling problems on here.

    Agreed... I am really struggt with this because I still owe money on this thing and throwing more and more into it. I might do throttle position sensor and go from there. I ordered the transmission protectant mentioned earlier so I will put that in as well.

    Please let us know what happens. I hate to see someone still owing money going thru these types of gremlins.

    This failure will throw a code. If there isn’t a code, it’s almost certain a mechanical failure.

    If you must though, buy from amazon warehouse and you can just return it when it doesn’t fix the problem. That’s what I did.
