What is an s light?
Check your manual, there is a pamphlet, quickstart guide, something of that nature that should explain all the lights.
What year, package?

Is your Check Engine light on as well? I've seen some people talking about this before. Check your gas cap. Also get the code read if the check engine light is on.

If I disconnect the battery, the light goes off but ultimately returns. I got this code: p26a5
That error code is associated with a defective thermo control valve. Recently a more common problem. It is being covered by the power train warranty.

It is a warranty item. I believe it is a $1,300 job. Contact your dealer.

Call SOA and ask for an exception. That part has been failing at a more than normal rate. The first stop should be the dealer. They may be able to ask on your behalf. They can also verify that the part is bad.
