Default Codes

New car to me, 08 touring with 204,000+. Thanks for the Utube link to the key dance and the other info. I know a little more now than before. My traction light stays on. My key dance runs clean. "done" no codes. My odometer check has no "P" codes. Is that normal? Car was a delivery vehicle and there were 4 years worth of service invoices in the glove box. I can't find anything that shows Tranny service or break/differential service, just oil and filters and tires. Would your best advice be just start over and do complete fluid replacement?
Thanks again for your help....

if you plan on keeping the car, YES, start over with a complete change of fluids. The biggest thing is to check to see if the timing belt has been done. Should be changed every 100,000 miles.

Go through all of your receipts and see if there's any mention of the belt and or, you can pull the top part of the timing cover out to see what the belt looks like, although appearance doesn't always tell the whole story.
