Radio keeps turning on/off, clears out clock,service engine soon
The radio on my car keeps turning on and off, and sometimes, will clear out the time on the car clock. and after a few days, the 'service engine soon' lit up. please help.
the same symptoms happened a month ago. i had it looked at and realized the water pump had to be replaced. i had that fixed and replaced the hosts too. and now the symptoms are happening again. what could be wrong?

You can buy a hand scan tool and turn it off. If you can't get a scan tool, you can remove one of the battery cables and wait for 10 mins before hooking it back up. But keep in mind that you need to reset the radio and clock
it may have nothing to do with it or it might, you will have to let them scan it and see what code pops up and then go from there. maybe something got lefy off or got knocked off during the tune-up.hope this helps.
You should not reset the ck eng light until you have repaired the problem. Its just going to come on again, unhooking the battery MAY reset it. To reset the change oil light, turn the key on and floor the gas pedal 3 times, that should reset the light.
No it will not. If you just bought the car. no doubt it has problems and the person you bought the car from had cleared the codes. After you have driven it a few days, the light has come on. because the engine computer (ECM) has run the tests and if a a component fails the test 2 times it will turn the light on. Sometimes a good scan tool (tech2) can tell you the "miles since cleared" and you how how many miles ago that the computer was cleared of all codes.
Disconnect the battery for a minuit and turn on the light's to power down any electrical power. Reconnect the battery and that should clear the "servie engine light soon",but if there are any DTC codes, the "Service engine light" will come back on.
On board diagnostic (OBD) was designed on vehicles equipped with electronic fuel injection so you can generally retrieve the codes yourself. No need buying a scanner or running to any parts stores to check the Engine Light. This system is called obd1 and applies to most vehicles made before 1995 for domestics and 1993 on imports. For GM domestic vehicles made before 1995, the diagnostic connector is located under the dash panel by the driver side. To get the check engine codes to flash in your dash panel, use a jumper wire or a paper clip and connect terminals A and B of the diagnostic connector. Turn your ignition key on with engine off and the codes should start to blink. All codes should start with code 12 which is one long flash followed by 2 short flashes. This code 12 means the diagnostic system is normal and will repeat itself continuously if there are no trouble codes. Otherwise, code 12 will flash 3 times before flashing the fault codes. the codes can be erased or cleared by disconnecting the battery negative terminal for 1 minute and reconnect. Just make sure to check your service manual in case you have electronic equipment such as radio or clock that needs reprogramming in which battery disconnection is not recommended. Finally after performing repairs on the culprit code, always go for a road test to confirm if the problem is fixed. Good luck and hope this help, here is a link to the DTC codes.http://www.gmtuners.com/OBD1_DTC.htm
hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.
