Whenever this warning light or any\012other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control\012module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil\012pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then\012disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL,\012CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must\012now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and\012"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the\012problem(s)
