Depending on what could be wrong. I hoping to do it myself. I have not checked the code yet.

The very first step in repairing this issue is to see what is wrong and to do that you will need a scantool to retrieve the codes from the modules.. Once you get the codes post them here and I will tell you what is going on and how to repair it..
