Thanks Eric, that is right. But right now I don't have a clue where to start. One more thing, today I went to work and the car wouldn't start at my lunch break. Hooked up the starter battery and went straight to O'Reilly where I did a battery check, seems that battery and alternator are ok. The battery was even 93% charged. What can be the issue that it wouldn't cranck. I don't think that the alternator can charge to 93% in <2miles driving?

It seems to me that you have a bigger problem brewing and really need to read out the fault codes before this car lets you down all together. Always best to tackle a problem when it starts to show signs of failure rather than wait until the thing breaks down.
