Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Have you had the fault codes checked at all to see what codes are set using a scan tool that will plug in and communicate with all computers in your model here?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete
