This happens all the time. It comes and goes as it likes. It beeps and its getting annoying to drive as it keeps beeping. What is the problem? What does CS mean?

Do you
have the same problem?

It is an internal issue with the digital dash. Have it checked by a shop with a scan tool to verify.

The scan toolcan look for codes and do sweep tests. It is not a code reader, it is a real scan tool.

You do not repair it, you replace it.
