Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

Check Engine light (not the one with the wrench)

My 2005 Equinox runs what seems to be fine. The light came on and I took it to the dealer and they said that it needed an Anti Lock Traction Relay Valve (ATR Valve). What is this? and What does it do? and where can I find it for cheaper than what they're asking?

It runs your Anti-lock brake system and makes your car stop safely, Most relays used in modern cars are dealer specific and therefore need to be purchased there for lack of options. My best advice is leave it up to the professionals, you took it to them because you could not figure it out. When people tamper with things they do not understand that is when things get messy. Good luck.

2005 equinox problems


check the air intake ducting for any wear , splits etc also try a fuel addative that covers the cataltic convertor may need the carbon deposits etc cleaning away , follow the instructions , for those that don't like fuel addatives it's the eqivalent of the old fashioned decoke but that is inpractical on a modern engine due to cost and time , just thought i'd give the reason for using a GOOD fuel addative that has been developed for a modern engine , not one that was made in the 60-70's and does more harm than good on a modern engine

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox LT and am having the same issue that you are having. Took it to the dealer and the say it is the Equalizer, which is located under the right passenger seat . First they quoted me 650.00 to replace then said they could do it for 200.00 cheaper. Oh by the way, have you ever had a sunroof leak because I have had 5 before they fixed it and this can corrode the wiring. But apparently my dealership does not think so. Hope this helps. :(

I have a 2005 equinox that I have purchased one week ago today and I started the car up and now the engine symbol is lit up. I checked the oil and it is just fine. What else could be wrong?


that would be your check engine light, it could be many things, you will need to have it scanned at a dealer or some place with a scan tool and get the codes, when you do that, reply back and i can help you
