Hi Mike there are no warning lights coming on.

Ok since the vehicle is going to first this means that it is going in to safe mode due to a fault being detected in the system,this is likely just a failing sensor,the first step is to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes to determine the proper failing sensor.
