    You need to get the codes pulled on that vehicle. If it is done by someone with a little knowledge, get the freeze frame data too. That will give some direction to start with.

    Remember that a code does not directly point to a part that needs to be replaced. It could be caused by wiring, programming or a mechanical defect yielding a failed test. Testing is usually required to be accurate.

    Still in warranty at 26K. Let the dealer worry about it.
