Don't worry I'll ask someone else

Dear customer, I apologize for the delay I understand the problem that you present the dashboard indicator lights come on when the computer detects that one of the sensors is not working correctly, in this case it is one of the sensors that work monitoring the operation of the engine.

Knowing exactly which sensor or area of ​​the engine is getting affected is very complicated if not impossible if you do not have a diagnostic equipment.
If the engine is not suffering of power losses or driving problems there is not much to worry about, it is surely an error code that is being stored sporadically and this usually happens when there is a dirty sensor or something like that.

In any case, my recommendation is always that before making a purchase or any repair, to first use a diagnostic equipment to find out the exact error code and know from here start with the relevant repair.

I hope this info to be helpful, my goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.

Kind regards, Sebastian.
