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.
I am here Sundays through Thursdays from around 5 am to 2 pm Mountain time.If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

This is a safety alert light.This is to alert to you that a component is acting up in the vehicle that requires checking into and repair that can affect occupant safety.This can be a fault with a component like a wheel speed sensor affecting how the brakes and traction control operates or an issue with another component acting up as there are several components that can cause this issue here.

What has to be done is to have the fault codes checked/read out with a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model that can read all computers in your vehicle.Once this is done there will be at least one fault code set and this code will then need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.

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
