SOURCE: WHAT IS THE REDUCED POWER LIGHT ON AN 2005 CHEVY

It means that there is a problem in your throttle actuator control system.The PCM will limit power until the problem is resolved.You should probably take your vehicle to a GM Dealership for further diagnosis.

SOURCE: 1999 chevy silverado service 4 wheel drive light

I had a similar problem with the Service 4 Wheel Drive light which came on intermittently then became more consistent in the message center display. It would go into 4 wheel drive if the message center did not display the Service 4 Wheel Drive message in the message center, but not when the message was displayed. I found the transfer case switch module in the dash was defective, and it has been working with no other problems for three years.

If you get an ABS (anti lock brake system) light on as well, you probably have a bad front wheel bearing (the ABS wheel speed sensor is built-in). Check the harnesses going to the sensors first, they may be damaged from turning. If no ABS light accompanying the Stabilitrak message, then you will need to get it scanned for a diagnostic code to further evaluate.

2008 Chevy Equinox, I'm getting an alarm for'Traction control' and check engine alarm. Is this something that only a dealership can correct? David


Could be out of alignment or a wheel sensor. If you take it in for an alignment it has to a shop that can deal with traction control sensors. The days of old wheel alignments are gone. IF the computer senses the wheels out of alignment then it believe the vehicle is slipping and gives an error.

There is no "cheking"to be done other than what you have done already.The movement,ANY movement,only means the universal joint is shot and needs replaced.I'm sure you've noticed a steady vibration.It's coming from bad U-joint.Replace it.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox but no owners manual. There is a light on the dashboard that comes on that show a picture of a car with what looks like a tool in the center. Can anyone tell me what this...


I believe that would be your "maintenance due" light. Most GM vehicles as of 2005 or so have a program built in to the vehicles computer that will let you know when it is time for your normal service to be performed. It measures this by how many times the vehicle is started, how long it is run for, etc. Sometimes it will come on after 3000 miles, sometimes 5000 miles and sometimes more. GM says that once the light comes on, they recommend you have an oil and filter change and any other necessary work done within 500 miles of the light illuminating. On average the light will come on about every 5000 miles but it can go to 8000 miles. I would suggest no matter what that the oil and filter be changed every 8000 miles at most with regular and not synthetic oil. You can always do the service sooner than that. Transaxles should be serviced at 30,000 miles or less on front and all wheel drive models on the Equinox. Please rate me on this answer.
