Warning light popped up in gauge cluster last night & remained on after numerous restarts.
The manual lists the light as"Exhaust gas values on Canadian Models". There are no warning triangles flashing and vehicles status on I -drive shows everything normal.
Any suggestions?

Found other posts... check for a loose gas cap. Otherwise you might want to bring it in, looks like that light is the equivalent of CEL (check engine light). Is yours a Canadian model?

it's not same but might help. I had numerous times gas fill cap warning msg, I was ready to buy a new cap, but car went for service at dealer, and SA called me back said he will keep a car for one more day, because some check valve on fuel tank failed, they replaced and since I don't have a problem. I looked underneath a car and saw this small plastic valve, it's located outside the tank easy to replace. So it might help it, I don't know.
