Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

The warning is displaying because a failure is being seen. There are many possible causes for this warning and for the overheating, which may be related, and it's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a code reader or scan tool to see what fault codes have set and then testing can be done accordingly. Do you know what codes are currently setting?
