Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This can be due to a fault with the air flap motor for the radiator that controls air flow through the radiator or on some models there was an update to the engine computer software for this issue here.A dealer will have to check to see if the software needs installed and test to see if the flap motor needs replaced.The cost for diagnosis can run around $100 and if programming is needed another $50 to $100.If the flap motor needs replaced in some cases this can run around $300 to $500.

This will need to be checked/tested further to locate which is the cause then repaired from there.
