Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try my best to help you with your vehicle issue. Did you have any recent service work done?
YES. I CHANGED THE TRANS FLUID AND PUT A THROTTLE POS SENSOR ON
Did you hoist the vehicle to work on it or ramps?
NO IT WENT UP ON A LIFT , BUT THE LIGHTS WERE ON BEFORE THAT EVEN HAPPEND, THEY WERE ON WHEN I BOUGHT IT,

I CHANGED THE FLUID BECAUSE IT TOLD ME TOO, SO THERE MUST BE A WAY TO RESET THE LIGHT RIGHT.??
Yup, is yours a "touring" ?

This message will appear on the Driver Information Center (DIC) when transaxle fluid change is due. Change fluid in both the oil pan and side cover. To reset display, turn ignition on with engine off. On the climate control panel, press and hold OFF and REAR DEFOG buttons until TRANS FLUID RESET message appears in DIC (about 5-20 seconds).
DIC = Driver Information Center
OK WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER LIGHT ?

Turn ignition on. Simultaneously push OFF and WARMER buttons on A/C-heater control panel.
A segment check of all LEDs on the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) should begin. See Figure. During this check, all segments except the turn signal indicators should illuminate. If all segments do not illuminate, replace IPC. After segment check, diagnostic code display will automatically begin.
After trouble codes have been displayed, PCM? will be displayed. (At this point, to return to diagnostic code display, press OFF button, otherwise, continue procedure.) Cycle through systems by pressing LO button until desired system is displayed, then press HI button.
RSS DATA will be displayed. (At this point, to return to SELECT SYSTEM MODE, press OFF button, otherwise, continue procedure.) Press LO button to cycle through tests until desired test is displayed. To enter desired test, press HI button.
Press HI button to advance to next test or LO button to return to previous test. See Figure. (At this point, to return to SELECT TEST TYPE MODE, press OFF button, otherwise, continue procedure.) A description of available tests follows:
Press AUTO or DEFOG button, or turn ignition off. This will NOT cause codes to be erased.
