    A simple code reader will only read simple Engine Codes and not and Body Control Module codes. The Body Control Module is involved with the operation of the dash lights.
    Really need a data streaming scanner that can stream the Body Control Computer to see what is going, could be that the instrument cluster has an intermittent problem.

    i am going to replace the trans range sensor. after reading through the factory manual the problem points to this sensor. I fixed it.......by getting rid of it.
