Dear customer I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know with whom I have the pleasure to talk, also if possible I would like you to send a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you obtained any error code, it would also be convenient. Keep in mind that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional charge to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you for now dispense with the call, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

Dear customer, do you have indicators on your dashboard?

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 7 days ago.

Dear customer first of all I want to comment that the error codes you are finding are generic U type, this means that there is no correct connection between the diagnostic tool you are using and the ECU, it is likely that your vehicle has a fault that you are not being able to diagnose on your own by the limitations of your scanner, I invite you to perform a new diagnosis from a scanner that has the software of the gear, as what you say seems an emergency mode perhaps due to a fault in the crankshaft position sensor which is one of the most characteristic elements when the vehicle is cut at low speeds, however this sensor can not be diagnosed from generic equipment.
