99.9% it is related to the oil and service reset. I would think the onboard system has detected degradation of the oil viscosity. Very likely the 'service people' used the cheapest possible oil.Get it drained down and the FULL GM recommended grade put in it. Then reset service setting.
Comeback and report again then if still a problem.

The only other possible, although I dont think it applies to the Trax, is a software programming problem.
There was I understand on the Aveo a software glitch bringing up code 89 but no reports I can find show this to apply to the Trax.

I havent got a copy of the Trax handbook but I suspect the oil would be 5w-30 C3 Dexos 2 rated.Double check your Handbook maintenance specification.
