HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Did the dealer happen to tell you of any stored fault codes found and if so, what they were

I also need the last 8 of the vin number to pull the schematics

Eric good morning. Thanks for the response. The garage never mentioned anything about codes. The vin number I'll send it this afternoon cause I'm working far away from my hometown and the car is not with me. Thanks.
