Thank you. One last question. Did this seem to come on gradually or all of a sudden?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Suddenly
Expert:  fix it man replied 2 years ago.

Thank you. Most of the time then this suddenly comes on like this it is due to a failure in the valve body or it can be a programming issue. You need to start by checking the fluid condition. If the fluid looks very dark or smells burnt then it may be much more serious. If the fluid is fine then the issue might be solenoid hanging up in the valve body.
