Please understand that I don't know your skilllevel. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies toget to satisfactory results.

If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.
There is some important testing in order at this point, all involving test equipment like a scan tool and a lab scope and DVOM. There may be codes stored in the computer also that don't illuminate the check engine light, but get stored into a different module. These test will confirm where the real problem is at.
It's not a reset issue or I would have suggested that already. It's unfortunate, but my suggestions are what need to be done now.
