I have ...
I have order a obd thru Amazon. Will reach next Tuesday!

This car does not charge continuously ... the charging circuit has some algorithm which accounts for load etc (eg no charge going uphill to remove alternator parasitics, moderate charge at 14V cuz the battery needs it while cruising, full charge at 15V when going down hill or coming to a stop kinda like regen)
But if 12.4 is typical when static then its dying though in both cases for me battery death was immediately after a short trip no warning and was <10V with trunk pop etc
Ok noted.. the intake manifold pressure sensor error came up again this morning... looks like this is my main issue...
Car stalled again, this time the cluster and radio went black and came on again, I’ve upload a photo for the following errors
Car is measuring 12.4-7 during uphill, highway cruising and even slow drive...
Thats quite a few under voltage flags
If you dont see any charge activity (monitor the battery section) then the alternator or charge circuit may need help?
Low voltages can cause all sorts of sensor issues so keep that in mind
Until the obd reader arrives just wire a voltmeter to the obd port and see what the numbers are to at least see what the alternator is really doing
Watch out for shorting those inserts are close together
Did monitor using xentry.. volt was around 12+ did not went up to 13 Nor 14.... I just changed my battery last week so I doubt it..
Looks like no or weak charging ...
I feel the same way too. What I found out today is that when I come to a stop and the car will off by itself due to the eco function when it try To start up again my screen will go black and came back. My auxiliary battery didn’t push any warning light. And also for the logging what should I log? Intake manifold pressure, fuel rail pressure, voltage and throttle position?
i log everything! one never knows ...
