Forgot to mention, both headlights replaced a few months ago and the igniters, prior to that the high pressure power steering. Other than that just the typical major service (timing belt, tune up oil changes and such). Thanks looking forward to your questions or advice

Hello sorry for the delayif this battery is in question the first step here is to have the battery charged and tested. when these systems see low battery voltage they will code up.

no recent work done on the car ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just the hid bulb and ignitor to solve the flicker issue. Work done 3 most ago. No other work for a year before that.

then I would get this scanned as the lights are on could be a coincidence or a fault in the system do you have access to a scanner ? to see which codes are stored so we can continue.

I don't but I just pulled my car back into the garage and only now the emission light is on the AFS and the transmission lights are no longer blinking
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.
ok. well you can try to reset the system by disconnecting the battery and letting it set or do a master reset to the system,

Please advise on doing a master reset to the system
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.
ok disconnect the battery and use a wire to connect both battery cable ends together for 15 minutes .you will need to place something over the battery so you don't short the leads to the battery post.this will discharge the entire system and clear all hard codes and memory. you will need to reenter your radio code and navi code once this is done.

Thanks, ***** ***** it a go in the morning. It seems that while two of the three codes have cleared maybe a hard reset to an order
