Check lights at night. Make sure head lights high and low beam. Also check licanese Plate light bulbs. I hope this should do the trick.

Also you can clear that msg so you can see your outside temp mileage etc by meshing on the R button(right beside the msg console buttom button) to reset any error msgs. This is just a temp solution but do check on the light as hsahai as mentioned above, good luck.

thanks a lot. I've checked all lights. they are working. today I drove the car, the message came out again after a while, sometimes couple of mins or one two house.

One thing more before you erase the message. this heppened to me one time. check lamp inidcator was coming on and off intermittently. What I notice that one of the tail light bulb was loose in the bulb socket. if you move the bulb little bit it will flicker. So I change the bulb and then problem was solved.

today I found that the message came out only when I press brake. but brake light bulbs are good. I remember that they replaced the front brake pads months ago. there is a sensor there, they pull it out and insert it in the new pad. I'm not sure about what the sensor for, I gues it's for thickness of pad. is there something there to traggle the message on?

please help.
