Okay, the light is VERY helpful. And, don't worry about your prior knowledge. I'll help.
The first thing I need you to do is have the car's computer scanned for trouble codes. This is how it works. Your vehicle has an On Board Diagnostic (OBD) system. It will be referred to as OBD 2. Using a scanner, a person connects to the car's computer and is able to see a code. This code, known as a trouble code, will help identify where the problem is coming from.
With that being said, I need you to have the computer scanned. Most nationally recognized parts stores will do this for free. I don't know where you are located, but if there is an Auto Zone, Advance Auto or a place similar, take it there and have the "Scan the computer for trouble codes." Once they do it, let me know what the codes are that they found. I can then direct you.
I'll watch for your reply.
