Hello. The issue may not be incredibly complex or major. With newer vehicles being equipped with more complex diagnostic systems, it is not uncommon for one issue being related to two separate warning lights. The first step is to have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic codes. This can be done at most automotive parts stores or by a technician. Once you have that information you can make repairs or continue testing. Your vehicle in particular has a large number of sensors, one of which may need to be replaced. The repairs needed may be more complicated but there is no way to know until the codes have been scanned. For more help with diagnostics and repairs, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
