Greetings all...
I have a 93 convertible. Yesterday my car started flashing "SYS" on the trip monitor. This annoyed me but the car was running good. I was on my way home and the car just died going through an intersection (some really fat slob in a beat-up station wagon full of kids started laughing histerically, I got pissed but realized how he probably wished he was in my position, car running or not, so I laughed histerically too) after coasting through the intersection I was able to start the car as though nothing ever happened. The car kept flashing "SYS", so I checked my codes (with a paperclip) but could only get a code 12 out of it. The "SYS" message is gone, and the car starts and runs fine. It is scheduled for a trip to the dealer this week, but I was wondering if anyone might have a lead as to what this may mean, or what I should be expecting to hear.

The SYS light could mean lots of things. You can disconnect the neg side of the battery and clear the codes. If you have already scheduled a trip to the dealer, I would tell them what happened and let them check into it.

"sys"

The battery is a few years old, not real old, but it did do alot of sitting. If I don't use the car, it will go dead after a few weeks. The car also seems to hesitate a little sometimes if I gas it hard from a dead stop. The car hasn't stalled again yet, but the SYS alert is still flashing, and the car reads only one code...12. It's not a real comforting feeling to drive it wondering if it is going to quit on me.:WTF
