The LCD is on. Did not remedy the problem. Still showing red warning light. Have to wait 3 hours to call roadside assistance again. Shop does not open until 7am. Have to preserve my phone. Low battery. Need phone to call assistance again.

Ok let me know once you get to the dealer and they run a complete health check of the systems.
