EVIC - PERFORM SERVICE MESSAGE

My malfunction Indicator Light came on. A scanner was used to determine the problem which was the Throttle Postion Sensor. I had it replaced. Now when I start my vehicle, on the EVIC, Perform Service appears and I hear a series of beeps. How do I clear this message and stop the beeps?

To reset the perform service message , is as follows , turn ignition switch to the ON position , depress and release MENU push button until SERVICE INTV . = is displayed , press and release STEP button to step through available options. the last selected distance option displayed becomes the service interval at which the PERFORM SERVICE message will be displayed . if a new distance interval is selected , RESET SERVICE DISTANCE ? with a yes or no option. when yes is selected the accumulated distance since the last previous PERFORM SERVICE message will be set to zero because the service interval has been changed . when NO is selected , the distance until the next PERFORM SERVICE message is reduced by the accumulated distance since the last previous message . EVIC exits programming mode and returns to its normal operation mode when the C/T button is depressed or when the end of the programmable feature menu list is reached , whichever comes first .

Thanks for asking .

Where to find the traction control switch on a 2001 chevy cavalier


Doesn't have one ! The electronic brake control module turns it on an off when there is a problem ! Your light on ? DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .
Traction Off
The IPC illuminates the traction off indicator when the following occurs:
• The electronic brake control module (EBCM) inhibits the traction control system. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination. The traction control system is disabled when the following occurs:
- For Chevrolet only, the shift lever is in FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) gear. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the gear position.
- For Pontiac and Oldsmobile only, the body control module (BCM) detects that the traction control switch is pressed (signal circuit is low). The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the BCM indicating the switch status.
- The BCM detects that the park brake is engaged (signal circuit is low) and that the engine is on. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the BCM indicating the park brake status.
- The PCM detects certain malfunctions and is unable to perform torque reduction requests from the EBCM. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating that traction control cannot be performed.
• The EBCM detects a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives class 2 messages from the EBCM requesting illumination of both the service vehicle soon and traction off indicators.
• The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.

2003 sta fe hyundai give code 121


P0121 HYUNDAI - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch 'A' Circuit Range/Performance

Possible causes - Faulty throttle position sensor - Throttle position sensor harness is open or shorted - Throttle position sensor circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) What does this mean? When is the code detected? Malfunction is detected when an excessively low or high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) P0121 Hyundai Description The throttle position sensor (TPS) responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the throttle position into output voltage, and emits the voltage signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECM. Idle position of the throttle valve is determined by the ECM receiving the signal from the throttle position sensor. This sensor controls engine operation such as fuel cut. On the other hand, the Wide open and closed throttle position switch, which is built into the throttle position sensor unit, is not used for engine control.

Why is my Ford 500 wrench light


Hello!

The computer turns this light on when there is a powertrain malfunction/electronic throttle body system malfunction. It could be the throttle body, computer, wiring or a sensor into the computer used for the throttle body. You will need to scan your computer again when the code is illuminated on the dash. Chances are you will pick up a code when this is done in the computer.
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The APP sensor is an input to the powertrain control module (PCM) and is used to determine the torque demand. There are 3 pedal position signals in the sensor. Signal 1, APPS1, has a negative slope (increasing angle, decreasing voltage) and signals 2 and 3, APPS2 and APPS3, both have a positive slope (increasing angle, increasing voltage). During normal operation APPS1 is used as the indication of pedal position by the strategy. The 3 pedal position signals make sure the PCM receives a correct input even if 1 signal has a concern. There are 2 reference voltage circuits and 2 signal return circuits for the sensor. For additional information, refer to Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) in this section.

It should be noted that the ETC system includes a warning indicator, wrench warning indicator, on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a concern is present. Concerns are accompanied by diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and may also illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
You best bet is to take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop or the Ford dealer !

How reset oil change light 2011 charger


Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The "Oil Change Due" message will
flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds
after a single chime has sounded to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.

Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position. To
turn off the message temporarily, press and release the
MENU button. To reset the oil change indicator system
(after performing the scheduled maintenance), perform
the following procedure:

1. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the ON/
RUN position (Do not start the engine.)

2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.

3. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

Engine Malfunction Indicator- What does it mean


Hi!! The Engine Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) or Check Engine Light, is the visual signal the computer turns on when there is a problem with the Engine Performance. The Check Engine Light comes ON when there is a problem with the Emissions, Fuel, Evap., ABS systems among other things. The codes can be retrieved using an OBDII scanner if your vehicle was made after 1996.
If your Check Engine Light is ON, you can take your vehicle to AutoZone, Checkers or similar Auto Parts store to get the PCM or Vehicle Computer scanned for trouble codes. This is a FREE service they provide to all of their customers.
Good Luck and have a Merry Christmas!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello i have a 2001 jeep cherokee and the gauges were it tells me how many miles till empty is says preform service... so what kind of service does it need?


I expect your vehicule is equipped with an EVIC (electronic vehicule information center (overhead console). Different functions and displays should be described in depth in your owner manual.
I'm not 100% familiar with your console type but I expect that you get that particular message when the specific value YOU have determined as the being the threshold before your next maintenance interval (in regard to the millage) has been reached. The normal reading of the millage 'distance to service' before next maintenance should decrease until it reachs 0 then triggers the perform service alert message. Once your maintenance is done you should be able to reset the counter which will start a new count from the specified target value.
Based on usual EVIC operation mode I would try the following procedure to reset it.

- Turn your ignition swith on
- press step console button at repetition until you get the service interval display
- then press the reset button for few seconds
Hoping I'm telling right and that it will help

Yellow exclamation light


The car is indicating that a malfunction has occurred. Two options... take it to a repair shop and have them run the OBD2 diagnostic to determine what the problem is.
OR...
Go to an auto parts store and purchase an OBD2 scanner and perform the diagnostic yourself. Some auto parts stores will do this for you for free and tell you what the code(s) mean
