Anytime you get a warning light, PULL THE CODES. Otherwise you can keep typing and we can keep guessing and we will likely never solve your issues. The holy grail to all engine troubleshooting is PULL THE CODES. Otherwise you may as well put on a blindfold, pick up a wrench (any size will do), open the hood and fix your problem. Fix what, you say? It doesn't matter. Without the codes, you are just guessing where to start. And your odds of fixing it are about the same. Totally random.
