Default Engine Error

After a wonderful day driving in Los Angeles heat, parked at home, engine stayed on a little while, then turned off. Plugged in and went back 2 hours later. Won't start. All lights come on, except engine Error symbol and won't drive or engage gears. Car feel hot, but not sure what to do. Ugh! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Depending on what software level the car is on after a error and doing a key cycle letting the car go to sleep and trying again to put in ready mode.If all else fails try a hard reset

I did the hard reset and that worked. While driving, yesterday, it was 112 degrees. I felt a vibration in the steering wheel every 5 to 10 seconds. In stealth and sport mode. When I parked at home, the engine stayed on, I assume to cool down. Then 2 hrs later error message and didn't start. I waited until morning and still didn't start, so did the hard reset and worked. Is this reoccurring issue once it happens or a sign of something more serious? I appreciate your input! Thank you

@Fedkrma - out of curiosity, do you know what version of software your car is running? If your engine cooling fan "runs for a while" after you shut off the car, it kind of sounds like my Karma used to behave in Phoenix after driving in hot weather on an older version of code. That older version of code was 5.10.

There have been 3 releases of code since 5.10, and you may want to consider getting the car updated to 5.35 (the 3 releases since baseline 5.10 are 5.20, 5.30 and 5.35). 5.20 changed the behavior of the car to shut off the fan immediately upon shutting down.

Sorry if you've already done these upgrades, just wanted to throw that out there.

P.S. I'm not suggesting this will fix the problem(s) you encountered the other day, but the 3 code updates fix lots of other issues with the car (some seen, many unseen). Good luck!

I had the software updated, but not sure the version. I requested from my service tech to confirm. The car drove beautifully tonight. Love the car! Just pray that it stays operable. Thanks for your input!

It appears that I have the latest version of software which is 5.35.

One way to tell if the car has 520 installed is the light that lights up the gear selector if goes out in 45 seconds you're on 520 a few minutes 510. Still sounds like a problem between the stop/start switch and the VCM.
That's fine the car isn't going into ready mode

Thanks so much for your input. I appreciate it. Software is up to date. Seems to be working well now, but might have AC issue that contributed to what happened. Getting that looked at soon. Thanks again

Is this for sure?
On my car, which should be on 535, it still takes about 2 min and my CSP told me, that he double checked and that none of his own or customer cars has this fast Shutdown

They never did the seperate VCM software during 520. If they were using configuration manager that flashed all the necessary modules automatically, there is an extra step to flash the VCM seperately with sw file you need to select the CAL file according to spec with or without backup camera. Have them email or call me I can walk them through it.
