The SH AWD uses electromagnetic clutch in the back drive axle to change the power distribution to the rear wheels. It would have nothing to do with the P0171 error. What TPMS valve stem was bad? Because this could be a clue to what the problem is. If a rear tire is having issues it could cause the sensor to make adjustments to the system to compensate for the tire. The person that changed the TPMS might have also caused the issue when they worked on the tires.
u dont need to replace bulb-its workn--that emplyoyee needs a test---the lite is tellin u there are some codes--go git a scan done at a partplace etc--mite b an 02 sensor or other-----some peopl hav takn the bulb out to cheat-but car wont run------try disconnectn batt n see if the lite clears-cud b just a glitch
Your computer checks your cars many sensors for any signal that seem out of a normal range. If it finds anything that seems odd it will set a code and your check engine light will come on. Best advice is to take it to a garage or somebody who can retrieve that code with a scan tool. If it's a bad part replace it, if it's nothing clear the code. Then the light should go away. Sounds like the routine mantinence done is unrelated to your problem. But check your fluid levels to be safe. Otherwise get the code read, it usually is free or cheap to have that done.
Any code that puts on the check engine light is a failure for inspection. Your mechanic has given you bad information. What you need to do is fix the code causing problem then drive vehicle for a few days to reset all inspection monitors. You will not pass inspection with a check engine light on unfortunately. Hope this helps.
Did you buy this from a dealer? if so, you should have taken it back ASAP I dont know why you didnt have the Toyota Dealer fix the car, now your in the middle of a mess, getting 2 shops involved, and the car still has a problem. When you bought the car, whoever you bought it from, knew there was a problem, cleared the code and it took a while for the check engine light to come back on. So now you will just have to pay someont to fix the car. The trans shop told you it needed a converter and solenoid, the problem is still there, so make it their problem. I think you need someone who knows toyota . theres no recall that I know of. Recalls are free, anyhow. . ecm is warranteed 8 years or 80k miles. Have the dealer check it out. Have them Check Bulletin TC008-04 and T-SB-0378-08
I have not heard of an oil change causing a check engine light.
A good plan is to have your Kia scanned, to see what the code is that tripped the check engine light. Most auto parts stores, such as autozone, will do this for free.
Some codes are very simple, such as a loose gas cap.
Once you find out what the code is, you can then make an educated decision on what to do.
Apparently the code checker that they use tells them how long the computer has been recieving codes. If the battery has been unplugged recently, they may suspect that you have an engine problem, but the code has not shown up yet. It makes sense because I know of people who disconnect the battery to erase the codes then go get the car checked. One of my friend's engine light came on just after he left the testing station, so, he passed but had an engine problem. Run the car for a couple of days and try again.
