A nice -44 here today with the wind.  Went to my aunt and uncle's out of town for Christmas and I guess my uncles plug in didn't have power.  Truck struggled to start but it did.  Then it went into low power mode, which I never heard of before and I could only get 12 mph out of it.  Luckily I was able to reset the ECM and it worked again, otherwise it would have been a long road trip.

Check YouTube. Low power mode is usually the TPS. Happened to one of my trucks.

It was actually the low battery that set it off.  I already verified the battery tripped the code.  I put the battery on the charger 2 nights in a row and the check engine light cleared and everything seems good now.

Rough morning!  I told my buddy at work, not to lock my truck because I had to reset the power locks and it takes 2 days before it starts working again.  He locked it and my manual lock was frozen.  It was only -44'C this morning.  It took about an hour to get it open but I was able to.  Just before that I looked at a steam coil at work and it was frozen and spitting water out of the bottom.  It probably froze because it couldn't get rid of all the condensation.

Love the cold weather! :(

As I get older I tend to like it less.  The guy I worked with last night said it was probably colder than where I grew up in the North.  I said, NO!  We would get down to -56'C in over night and warm up to -44'C  and that is with no wind.  Sometimes it is windy and we are in the -60's with the wind.  Now, that is cold!!

The -34'F is definitely cold!  We had 2 weeks here and still going of -30 to -37'C and with the wind as cold as -48'C.  I spent an hour on a roof at work cleaning snow from an intake which goes to a Research Facility on New Years Eve and I was on the roof a couple more times.  I literally had brain freeze!!  But the Researchers don't like it when there medical research goes bad.

When it is this cold I like to use it to assemble things which are tolerance fit.  Rearends, rocker arm trunions, etc.
