How do I reset service engine soon on my 2002 pontiac Grand Am?


If its an OBDII system you can get it to go off by disconnecting the negative battery lead from the battery, leave it off for 10 minutes, reconnect and it should be off. Be aware if you do this you will lose all presets on radio etc.

My 2002 Chevy Trailblazer loses power at times. I wil be driving 60 MPH then suddenly I cant drive more than 30MPH it sounds like I have a flat tire. If I shut my car off and wait about 5 minutes it runs...


the running issue seems to be the convertor clogging up. need to have backpressure test done to see for sure. the electrical issue sounds like the ignition switch or the orange ,pink,or yellow wire going to the switch. both are common problems with the trailblazer.NOTE if the vehicle has less than 80000 miles the convertor will still be under factory warranty (EPA guidelines)

About 3 weeks ago a friend had to disconnect the battery to change the head light bulb. After reconnecting the battery, I know longer had use of the radio. If I try to turn on the radio power it states...


the radio is an anti-theft type and needs a code to reset after losing power. The code is usually in the paper-work obtained when the car was purchased. the code is 5-6 digits long and is on a plastic card with the radio serial number.

the oil life message will continue to show until it is reset. With key off, hold the trip odometer reset button down. now, while still holding it down turn the key to on but don't start. Count to 20. The oil life message should be out and reset.

tires rubbing. could be a plastic trim piece in the fender well area has come loose from when the headlight bulb was replaced. Look under there and see if you can spot where the tire is rubbing. Turn the wheel one way all the way and check, then the other way and check.

Low tire pressure light wont go out


The Low Tire Pressure Indicator must be reset using the Radio. This can only be performed if you have the factory radio installed in the vehicle. This vehicle does not come with an active tire pressure management system, and as such, this light must be reset manually.
1.) Turn Radio Off 2.) Hold down disp button for 10 seconds 3.) Setup Menu should display 4.) Scroll through menu to view "Tire Pressure" (use seek buttons) 5.) Select the Tire Pressure option (Press Radio Button 1) 6.) Reset should be displayed on screen (Press disp button) 7.) Tire Pressure Light should reset

1. turn the ignition key from Acc to on then back to Acc twice. 2. turn your head light switch on and off three times. This should reset the warning light. The change oil light can be reset by pressing on the gas peddle three times in place of the headlight switch.

A 2003 Chevy Impala with low tire pressue signal on


On a Chevy Impala or Monte Carlo with indirect TPMS, a totally different reset procedure is required. You can use the light switch or radio to reset the system. With the light switch procedure, turn the ignition on (engine off), the turn the light switch from OFF to parking lamps three times within five seconds. With the radio technique, turn the ignition on (engine off). With the radio off, hold the DISP button until “SETTINGS” is displayed. Use the SEEK button to scroll down the menu until you see “TIRE MON.” Press the PREV or NEXT buttons until “RESET” is displayed. Then press the DISP button again. You should hear a chime and see “DONE” to indicate the TPMS system has been successfully reset. Use the SEEK button to scroll through the menu until “DONE” is shown, then press DISP once more to exit from the learn mode.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Can u reset oil,tire,ect...without original radio on a 2001impala


You should be able to reset the oil life light.
TRY this...
put the key in and turn to the accessory point,do not start the car.
Once you get to "acc" on the ignition press down 3 times on the gas pedal but NOT fast,sort of slowly.
Turn it off then start the car,it should reset and the light goes off if not..repeat it.
Always works for me.
I hate the reminder set up,stupid if ya ask me,i know when to change oil etc.
