    Hello everyone,

    I apologize if this has already been discussed somewhere, I searched and could not find it. This also tells me that I should probably know how to do this, but don't.

    Can someone help me with some instructions on how to perform an onboard diagnostics? My check engine light came on today at 240 miles.

    Thanks!

    At the risk of sounding real stupid (probably already too late) I just went out to the car and cannot see option 9 even. Do I need to be in an app for this? Settings? All I see is climate, radio, media etc.....

    Sorry!

    No problem. It is in the screen over the wheel.
    Crank it up, on the left side of the steering wheel, use the up or down arrows to change to screen 9. Diagnostics. Then press ok.

    Excellent info!

    My guy told me he could do it while I waited. Is he being overly optimistic?

    if all he is doing is a software update, it should take less that 1/2 hour.
