Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

You have failure codes in the system, you need to get this scanned to diagnose. You can take this to any auto parts store and get a free scan. Write down the numbers of the codes. Let me know what you come up with. This could also be done at the dealer.
