A yellow light just came on on my 2008 Impala. Its a circle with an exclamation mark. What does it mean?
Tire pressure monitoring system. Start by checking your tire pressure and set to what the sticker on the drivers side door frame indicates. If this does not turn the light off you will have to re-learn the sensors to the vehicle. This is done by:
reset the tire pressure monitoring system, to do so, you need to get your key fob, and put your ignition key in the ignition, turn it to the accesories position, and simultaneously press the lock and unlock buttons on the key fob. hold them until the car honks the horn.
then take something to let out air in the tires, you need to start with the left front then go to the right front, then the right rear, then the left rear.
start at the left front, drop the pressure in the tire until the horn beeps, -usually takes 8 seconds or so. then repeat on the other tires in the order above.
After you finish with the final tire, the horn will honk again, then you know your done. usually honks 2 times.
and then you can turn the key off, and set your tire pressures.
