Hello. Since this could be a variety of potential issues, I would recommend hooking the car up to an OBD scanner to download any trouble codes that may have registered as a result of the light coming on. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose using an OBD scanner which should help to narrow down your search.
