I'm afraid you need a new mechanic, first of all. It doesn't sound like your mechanic is equipped to diagnose these issues for you. If you received an error message on your display, then there IS an error code stored in the vehicle. Your mechanic simply may not have a scan tool that is capable of retrieving this data.

I strongly recommend letting your dealer service this for you, unless you know of an independent mechanic that is fully equipped to deal with the systems on your SRX. This is a complicated, electronic system, and you need high end tools to be able to service it.

Please take the time to rate my answers, that's how I get compensated. If you have further questions, I am happy to follow up with you.
