If ir is a brand new car there is a safety latch that should hold the hood down. You can pull on the hood to be sure the safety latch is doing its job. Drive the new car take it back to the dealer or where ever you bought it.
They will slam the hood down and smile. Better them breaking the new car than you,'
It may be out of adjustment
You can manually activate the hood latch. There is a hook like assembly that follows the hood latch down when closed. You can activate this assembly by hand. Be sure to release it before attempting to close the hood again.
If it is a used car make sure the handle in the driver side has returned to the home position. If it has I would gently slam the hood down.
Look for a contact switch in the trunk. Sometimes, when the trunk (or door for that matter) gets slammed, then button gets set deeper. What's happening is door and trunk switches are "self adjusting", and a slam "Self adjusts" too far. It is hard to reset the switch without killing it. Just get another one if you find this to be your situation. Test the switch before you buy a replacment.
The only way to have the light reset is to take it to a tire shop or the dealer. Most of the time the system does not need reset, the actual sensor need replaced. The TPMS sensor only have a shelf life of 5 years if your lucky. With that said, I would first confirm that the tire pressures are set to 35 psi. IF the Low tire light is still on then I would take it to a tire shop or dealer to have the sensors checked. As for the Radio I have never seen the "tire mon" on it.
On a Chevy Impala or Monte Carlo with indirect TPMS, a totally different reset procedure is required. You can use the light switch or radio to reset the system. With the light switch procedure, turn the ignition on (engine off), the turn the light switch from OFF to parking lamps three times within five seconds. With the radio technique, turn the ignition on (engine off). With the radio off, hold the DISP button until “SETTINGS” is displayed. Use the SEEK button to scroll down the menu until you see “TIRE MON.” Press the PREV or NEXT buttons until “RESET” is displayed. Then press the DISP button again. You should hear a chime and see “DONE” to indicate the TPMS system has been successfully reset. Use the SEEK button to scroll through the menu until “DONE” is shown, then press DISP once more to exit from the learn mode. Thank you for using fixya and good luck
did it quit making the noise when you lightly push down on the trunk? most people slam these trunks and your not suppose to you are only to put light pressure on them and they pull it closed theirself.. you might check your relays under the hood and look in the box lid to see which one it is.. if this is not the problem you might have to replace the motor to the latch .. you might check with a test light to see if there is power to the motor first though .. thanks and holler if you have more Jerry .
if you look under the hood there is a black box it is the fuse box. pop cover off and you will see a little red button in there this is your oil reset. Turn key on engine off and hold button down for 15 seconds light should start flashing this will indicate it is reset.
hi air bags are very delicate things its very dangerous to any one fitting them as any sudden bangs and electrical surges may set them off so please be carefull if trying this your self . there are 2 thing to do befor doing this disconnect the battery and the fuses to your air bag before changing it
no it will not reset it self when fitted but you can take it to your local garage to be reset in fact you maybe better of taking the hole thing down there to be fitted and they will reset it for you too
most garages wll do this now you dont have to take it to the main dealers to sort out this problem the cost at a dealer doing this is very high but for your local garage it should be half the price for the same job
i hope this helps you sort your problem out
thanks all the best to you
