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.

The most common cause for all of these issues here is low battery voltage.This was a common issue on this model to trigger the lights and messages as well as can affect driving or shifting.I would start with having the battery and alternator tested to see if either is at fault needing replaced.If they test to be o.k. since this happened after work was done on the engine I would have the repairs that were done re checked for any loose wiring or connections to see if anything was left loose, bumped loose or damaged causing this issue.If it is found that the fault is related to the recent repairs that were done then you would want to see if the facility that did the repairs will cover the costs to repair it for you.

You can also have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool that can read all computers in your vehicle to see what codes are set with this issue.Once this is done any codes set will then help and will need to be diagnosed with then locate and repair this fault.

I suspect low voltage due to a faulty battery or alternator or wiring left loose or damaged.

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.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
