Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

When this light comes on, a codes is being set in your computer and needs to be extracted to see what it is.

Most parts store will use their code reader and get the code out for free, but that code reader doesn't give data that we may need. To acquire data, we need a scan tool. Try the code reader first and let me know what the codes are.

Thanks, Ron
