They discovered the pump that was to pull vacumn to check the system was bad. It was replaced and no more codes.

I would get the dealer to state in writing that they will fix this if it happens again or ask them for a smoke test now. All they have to do is put the car on the lift and get their smoke pen.

good info to know here
