Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

All those warning lights are the modules telling you there are codes stored. Those codes will help by telling you what is wrong or where to begin diagnosing. I do recommend you do that rather than diagnosing by symptom alone.

I am going to get you the service steps but I need to know what liter engine and what trim level like (R, i GT, premium, limited)

Please make sure to rate my answer prior to logging off, as this is how I get credit for helping you. If you have not yet received 5 star excellent service from me. Please follow up so you get everything from me that you expected from the deposit you have already paid, which I get nothing of till you rate me. Rating does not close the post nor prevent replying at a later date.

Thanks Moose
