Fixed a few cars in my time.....lol 5 years shop service and a lifetime of vehicles being thrown at me for repair. Emergency services and maintenance for family and friends and friends of friends...you know how it goes! The more info. you give the better the solution you receive. Remember......your car could be 2000 miles away from the person taking his personal time and expertise to try to solve your issue..........for FREE!!! Not a bad deal!

P0170 = Fuel trim malfunction probably MAF sensor... Po171 = system too lean bank 1....P2195 = o2 sensor stuck lean bank 1 sensor 1....could just be a bad o2 sensor. All these things are covered under warranty for a vechicle as new as yours. Take to dealer.

Question Answered: 

Take to dealer and see if they can recode keys to your vechicle. Unless the actual ignition is bad then refer to answer #1.

Question Answered: 

Most likely one of the door sensors is not functioning properly. This makes the vechicle sense that a door is open and the interior lights come on like when you exit the vechicle. Otherwise you have a short somewhere else in the system.
