TPM, ABS, ESP, Check Engine, Traction Control lights all on

My friend has an 06 and all of these lights are on. She said they've been on for a while and the car seems to be running fine. I had the codes read at the local auto parts store and they came up with the following -

P0700 - Read Fault Memory of Control Unit ETC
P0562 - System Voltage Low
P0740 - Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Circuit

Does anyone have any ideas where I should start to get this fixed ?

Thanks

First thing I'd do is check the battery connections for a tight clean fit (Corrosion). Check the grounds too and the battery itself for weakness. These things do all sorts of weird things if the battery or connections are weak.

Was the battery recently replaced? Has it gone dead in the past? P0700 is a standard transmission fault code that says there are transmission faults. When it is set, there will always be a trans fault code with it, in this case a P0740. Unless you are having electrical issues with the battery and/or alternator, you may have a transmission starting to slip in overdrive. Often times it takes a decent scan tool and someone knowledgeable to drive it and see if there is slippage detected. Note: the control module will set that code often times long before a driver can feel it or tell anything, and your tachometer isn't accurate enough to tell a thing. The P0562, that could be the key to the problems. Poor battery connections, a bad battery, one that has gone dead, or someone replacing the battery without using a memory saver, can set that fault.

One new piece of information. When talking to her today she said that she believes most of these lights if not all of them came on when she had new pads put on and had the tires rotated..... I'm going to check the battery today but didn't know if that gave any new clues...

Coincidence most likely. None of that has anything to do with the transmission. Now if they let the battery get low or dead, that would explain the low voltage fault.
