your computer has picked up a reading from a sensor that is "outside" operating protocal. I would take it in and get it scanned. The garage will be able to tell you what went wrong. Sometimes it is just something simple, or it could be a larger issue and if you get it fixed now it might save you some money in the long run. If you let it go it can turn into a huge bill. Hope this helps and best of luck.

Thanks so much for your help.
