    Some times the cleaning works for a short period and sometimes it doesn't work and the VSS must be replaced.

    Glider,
    I pulled it and no metal shavings at all, i wiped it off and reinstalled. Doing a midnight run thru DC tomorrow night. If the light comes on again i'll have to get a new one. Luckily, it has a disconnect right on the unit itself. Thanks again.
