    Fault light but no fault code

    Hi Folks,
    I'm having a peculiar problem. My 2016 is showing the yellow triangle fault code and some months ago my scan device showed a fault with the ground on my horn. Today I got around to checking things, and all looks good. Now the fault code does not show up on my GS911 and so there is nothing to clear, and yet the yellow fault light remains on. I'm at a loss for how to clear that light since my scan device shows no faults.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Not something silly like a low fuel warning or due service is it..??

    No, the low fuel light is a separate light on the right side. Not service either.

    Still no solutions to my problem. Can't access posting photos here despite many efforts but the fault light is right above the ABS light on the left side of the tach. Can't clear it because it doesn't show up as a fault in the system. Baffling, but any ideas or simple misses?

    you've accidentally switched off your Traction control.

    Go into the menu or whatever and re-enable it.

    That last bit of clarity...  Is it this light? If so that's your TC light and likely as Mareng said might have disabled it, simply hold the ABS button for 1 sec to re-enable

    Yes, problem solved. When all else fails check the manual, right? My problem was I had seen a fault with horn show up and I thought it was that light, but might have been the other since though they are different places they look identical to me. So that set off my confirmation bias and I kept thinking that was it. When I checked the manual, like you folks have said, it was Duh! Problem solved. I never purposely toggle my ASC or ABS and must have fumbled around bumping it while doing something else and paying more attention to the road than my switch gear.

    Went for a ride today to clear the light and what a gorgeous Fall day here in the PNW. Just heaven. The XR was like a horse that hadn't been out of the stable in a week, so eager to stretch her legs and pass people.

    Thanks for your patience and not being unkind with my foolish miss.
