I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated on a saturday. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

unfortuantely they are right, it does have to go on the computer.

it is either a failed general module or failed antenna

neither can be fixed, nor can the cause be verified, without putting the car on a main dealer computer

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
