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.

This can indicate a fault is detected with one of the electronics in your vehicle causing a warning light and sound to occur.What needs to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.

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 ( should be a link to click on here or above).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

Once again something has failed here . I paid $28 to get a fast response .Since l paid and asked my qestion I waited 4hrs for the Tow Truck to arrive, then 1hr to Mechanics Shop . The next day the Mechanic diagnosed my car and told me what was wrong . I still had no response from Just Answer ! Scammed $28 . Not good .
