Expert:  Ted the Technician replied 8 years ago.

Did this problem and the warning light happen after the power pack and sensors were installed. What sensors were replaced?

Has you had the codes checked?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
i will have the codes checked on mon. That is when I will take it back to the shop. I am not sure of the sensors but when I left the shop yesterday all was well I even drove the car last night and early today without problemm , then it just went. At least I now have some idea of what the problem may be. Thanks
