The shop said the fault indicated was a leaking "condenser hose." Well, it cam back on a few days later (while waiting at the same red light!?) and now they say it is the switch that engages the "winter" mode of the auto transmission that has failed. I'm not sure I believe it. They said to drive with the light burning until the part comes in in a couple of weeks. No other symptoms - engine is smooth and gas mileage and performance unchanged. Hmmm...
