You have 4 ASR cables that needs to be checked, often one or more need to be changed, dealer may not want to work on these because of the corrosion, find the parts then find a good mechanic who's not afraid of getting dirty nor use a hammer. The cables will cost around $100+ if the cables are good then you will need an analyzer to check while the fault light is still on.
