My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

An electrical connection could have become damaged or disconnected or wiring may have become damaged or shorted out causing this here.I would have the work re checked to see what has been either bumped loose,damaged or disconnected causing this fault here.I would also have it checked over for any damaged sensors or components causing this fault here.Most likely this is what has occurred here as this is most common when a fault like this occurs after work has been done.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
