hi there,

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech.

i have seen this a few times on these and it has been because the fluid was low because of a seal leaking.

this will have to be scanned and read the trouble code stored.

it is a very sensitive differential unit and if it is low or it notices slipping than it will activate the service message and store a code.

I am thinking it is to do with fluid level as i have seen the axle seals leak on these a few times before.

other possibilities are the differential clutch control module and the differential unit itself.

i would make an appointment and have them scan it and check for leaks

let me know what you find!

i am always available for follow ups after initial rating.

thanks and i appreciate positive ratings!
