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 try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Have you had the fault codes checked/read out at all using a fully compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model that can read all computers in your vehicle?

Let me know,thanks Pete
