Came out of work and started the car, only to find the traction light on, and the abs/brake lights flickering. Tried to drive around a bit, and things got really screwy. Speedo flickering, intermittent power loss, clutch dumping, and random revs. Tried to shut it off and restart, but it would only just bump the starter. Threw a host of codes,
U0001,U0122,U0073,P0500,P0700,P0811,P1600,U0100. It finally came to it's senses enough to get it home. After dinner I'm going to check the battery and cables.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Sounds like battery - you are on the right track. :)
Thanks for the confirmation, I'm pretty sure it's the original battery, so It's probably about time. I know the engine was replaced just before I got the car, There's a date on the fuel rail that shows November 2015. I have no idea what else they replaced, though. Most likely not the battery. I'll probably go ahead and build a couple of new ground cables while I'm at it as well.
