probably need a NEW battery if yours is older than 2006 )check the "knock- off" labels on the top of the battery and with a coarse wirebrush restore the Main ground connection off the 1/0 black battery cable to ground...this is an important one as the ECM doesn't work so hot on reduced voltages and "brown power" so clean it up with fresh power and problems should vanish~

work the keys in doors lock and unlock, unhook bat. cable 10 seconds or more ,reconnect, now check light! do the key thing run position 10 minutes , not running

on some cars you hold the trip down then switch it to "on" and completely off...five times and release the trip...not sure if this is the same architecture, but worth a try...~

some cars just using the manual driver's door lock resets everything~

something about the stereo holding the 1 and 6 buttons simultaneously and watching for a message.....again NOT your car, but interesting on how some of these auto makers try to make it all so sneaky~
