I was wondering if you had any service/maintenance done on your new ED already.

Wasn't expecting to for a year or 12000 miles, but at 5000 miles, I started getting a 30 day warning. I haven't followed up yet to get it reset, as temps are too low for me to get to the dealer and back home on a single charge.

im at 5600 miles and still nothing. only light that does come on is when the charger is plugged in still, and when you start up the car, it goes into a steering wheel warning light, and it wont let me put the car in gear. always gives me a 0 sign....

None at all. I've had mine since July & it's our main & only vehicle. Only 1800 miles on it. Oddly though, the battery coolant level is almost below the "low" mark. Rather strange. Anyone have any ideas?

I have had the TPMS sensor on for the last month. I have checked the tire pressures and they seem OK. I read somewhere there was a reset procedure but I can't find the button they refer to in that procedure.

If the TPMS light flashes then stays on solid, it indicates a problem with the system, usually a faulty transmitter in one of the wheels. The dealer can tell by using their diagnostic tool. I had one transmitter that kept failing and it was replaced under warranty. If the light just comes on, no flashing, then it indicates a change in pressure beyond what is expected. A change in outside temperature can trigger this. Check the pressure and reset the alert by pressing the TPMS button on the panel in the middle of the dash below the radio and holding until the indicator on the dash clears.

I found the reset button, which was clearly labeled on the bar below the radio. That same bar has the lock and unlock buttons. The TPS came on because I had to repair a slow leak.
