Have you checked the DTRL fuse? It is located in the fuse box under the hood. If its not the fuse try removing the connection to the battery for 30 min and reconnecting them. The DTRL have a modual that could be acting up and need to be reset, or it could be bad and need replacement.

Will the fuse be labeled DTRL or something else? In the owner's manual I looked for a fuse labeled DRTL and could find nothing. Thank you.
