My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If there are never any fault codes set when this light is on and no running or shifting issues here either this can be a fault with the instrument cluster itself as it may be shorting out causing the light to come on or an issue with the engine computer commanding the light on when it shouldnt be.This would need to be checked/tested further to locate which is the cause here and from there then repaired to resolve this fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
