Can you provide the last 7 digits of the VIN? Is this the ONLY light illuminated in the dash?, is it accompanied by a traction control light? Does the clock in the vehicle reset? Does the light disappear after driving for a bit? Did the dealer give you a copy of the work order with a description of the cause of the fault that they found when they cleared the light?

5102879 are the last 7 digits.
It is the only light illuminated.
Cloak does not reset.
Light does not disappear at all..
I did not receive a copy of the work order. Was told the battery might have been low and the computer had to be reset. Not believing that.
Light was gone when I left the dealer. Started the car later that night and light was back on.
