Talking fixed!!

Thanks guys, I guess we need to help Kamal now.
Since I have only had the car for about 4 months now, I have been replacing parts, which required disconnecting the battery from time to time.
So every time I hit a bump on the road the CE would come on and it would code #17.

FORGOT TO tighten the battery clamps to the post!!!
No more CE!!!

Thanks a million guys,

Maybe Kamal should try cleaning the battery post and clamps with sand paper and tighten them up??? Thats what I did just to be sure contact was being made.
