Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This message coming up indicates the engine computer has detected a fault with one or more components on the engine.This can be a sensor or solenoid fault or even a mechanical engine fault.

What has to be done from here is to have a fully compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicle to read all computers in your vehicle for any codes that are coming up.There will be at least one code that comes up with the message you see.

Once you have this code read out then the code can be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.This has to be done since there are allot of different components that can fail or act up causing this warning to come up like you see here.

If the engine is running o.k. with this message on you may be o.k. to drive it for now until you can have it looked into but I recommend having it checked into as soon as possible.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).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
