Hi, my name is***** sounds like your PSE module has failed. You first need to check fuse 71 in the rear fuse box. If the fuse is good you can try reinserting the fuse to see if it will reset the system. If the fuse is blown you will need to replace the PSE module located in the trunk. The module controls all of the functions that are not working on your car.
