Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

I would check all the fluids and make sure everything is ok waiting about a hour should be enough time for the system to cool and restart, just to play it safe, but if your getting it towed anyways, why not just get it towed today from where you are at to the dealer?
