3100 0 Suddenly the main screen displayed "Engine failure" and the engine became extremely weak. They ran some diagnostics but couldn't find a cause, it fixed itself. It looked like overheating to me. Rescheduled for a software reset next Tuesday. Engine failure warning, no acceleration, diagnosed as acceleration body failure, sensors not reporting back to main computer. Repair delay due to replacement part shipping and testing.
