Honest mistake. Ive been there before. I hit the gym, but only worked out my arms. Legs are weak though. I bet ya were hitting the brake pedal a few times to make sure your bulb replacement was properly done. Then ya went to start it, but you dont have leg strength to push past the lack of vacuum and panic set in! Donít skip leg day!

I had the same warning pop up also , mine was right front apparently It seems to be a common problem , I read a lot of older posts and what I could gather there was a lot of trial and error solving this problem . So I went the easy rout first , I checked the wiring harness that's housed along the top of the front bumper apparently It gets trapped between the rebar and the bumper and shorts out mine was ok you can check that by taking out the head lights . The next post I read said with the engine off lower your tire pressure to 15 psi switch the engine on then inflate to 40 psi then drive It for ten minuets above 15 miles an hour eurica warning went out so that worked for me , that was about two weeks ago all Is still well . Hope this helps GL

Press and hold the START button BEFORE you step on the brake pedal. All it takes is a tap of the pedal to start the engine. Inadvertently pumping the brake pedal makes it harder to start and you have to exert all your leg strength to depress the pedal far enough to make contact with the switch.
