Looks like you have a problem with an immobiliser, either the actual chip inside your ignition key is broken or the ECU has reprogrammed itself or for some reason it is not reading the chip. Have you tried your spare key? To reprogram the key you will need vagtacho2.2 or Vagcom and an interface.

I Ask a Mechanic to change Starter and now most light are dead.


i would say check all the fuses again, both in passenger compartment and under the hood. plus, the mechanic should be responsible for this issue. it also sounds like you battery is not fully charged. i would also suspect, the starter was changed without disconnecting the battery and something was shorted as he installed the starter. good luck

How to reset service lamp after oil change on a 2000 yukon gmc


I have a 2005 GMC Envoy and you turn the key to on, then press the gas pedal to the floor three time in 5 sec. The oil light blinks once and your done. I'd give it a try. Remember engine off but the key is on. Can't hurt to try it. Otherwise you'll need an owners manual to figure it out.

Recently the Maintenance Required light comes on and blinks for a couple of minutes, then goes off. We put new brakes on the front and we changed the oil and I thought the light would stop, but it's still...


the car is telling you that the oil needs to be changed/ the milage has reached the limit for needing to be changed. even if you have changed the oil it will still warn you after 7500 miles to change the oil. To make the light go off, press and hold the knob the resets your milage for 15 secs then turn the key to the on position(dont start the car) then continue to hold the knob in for about 30 secs, release, turn the car off, wait 5 secs, turn car to on position, then back off the start the car it should clear the maintence light.
