    My dash shows traction control off and engine light on. Dealer has been round and round with no answer. Gave me a rental for a week and could not figure it out. Said flexfuel sometimes needs to use a tank full of high end premium gas and something about starting 10 times and light goes out. Well I have done that and occasionally light and traction control off goes away but comes back soon after. Auto parts store used scanner and said misfires and looks like plugs and caps. Does any of this sound familiar?

    What the dealer said; I’ve never heard of.
    Since it’s FFV, have you had any updates on it?

    Did they find the issue? Mines doing the same. It’s not flexfuel though.

    Dealer found dirty fuel either bad ethanol or dirt in tank...drained tank and cleaned filters use regular gas no more ethanol and problem solved
