Dear customer, sometimes when we are driving the exhaust can be hit in some part as pothole every time it is hit, cracks can be generated, what is it that you may be presenting but there are sensors that work with the exhaust that can activate error codes and lit the indicators that you currently have.
My recommendation is based on two things the first that you do a visual check at the exhaust and to the lower area of ​​the vehicle, for this in the garages they use a bridge or jack that allows us to easily enter the internal one, the second thing I recommend is that you do a diagnosis to check which sensor is being affected, it is very likely that it is one of the exhaust sensors such as the catalyst sensor.
The advantage is that this type of repair is not very expensive and the sensors can be obtained at good prices and also these exhausts can be welded easily.

Ok thanks, ***** ***** case I’ll take my car to the garage tomorrow and see if there’s any hole that needs welding, if there’s no hole I’ll do a diagnostic
