Look for any leaks at the firewall and underneath the carpeting in your car. Mine did this a while ago and stopped when it was dry out. The check tire pressure is resettable by a little button under the right side of your dash next to - but under the instrument panel. Low coolant could be a leaking head gasket or intake manifold gasket(common), or a clogged radiator try having it flushed and look for any excessive coolant consumption or fluctuating coolant temps.

Low tire pressure light keeps coming on, even when tires are at correct pressure


First, check the tire pressure of the spare. If all tires are properly inflated, then one of the sensors are bad and must be replaced.

A/C not working?


First of all coolant is only for heater and engine cooling. If you meant refrigerant that is tested by hooking up a A/C pressure gauge. A quick
check would be to look at the compressor to see if it s spinning. A jumper wire from the battery and from ground will tell if power is not reaching the compressor. The force feeding the compressor bypasses all the safety devices so just do a spot check. Next get a gauge set and measure the pressure with the car off. It should read over 20 pounds about the limit of the low pressure cutoff switch. It the pressure is too low Put no more than 2 14oz cans of Freon and then check the pressure after shutting engine off. To get it started putting freon in vent the system from the high pressure side by holding down the spring loaded valve. You can find this usually by removing the black cap and it looks just like the valves in a standard tire stem.
oops the fuse should be in the fuse box.

Fuse # 2 keeps burning out


Put a taillight bulb in place of the fuse. It will light when wires are shorted. Wiggle and check wires until the bulb does not burn. You can also get fuses that light up when blown.

The Wiper fuse keeps blowing? Any Ideas?


Does the fuse blow as soon as you turn on the switch? Or do the wipers operate for a bit then the fuse blows? Will the wipers work in intermittent mode? Can you move the wipers by hand? Unless other wiring work has been done (eg radio replaced) I suspect the wiper motor is toast.

YOU CAN CODE SCAN CAR TO SEE IF YOU HAVE FAULTY PCM, FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY.IF COOLANT FAN AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OKAY,YOU HAVE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IN COOLANT SYSTEM, THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP BEEN REPLACED, YOU COULD HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET BLOWED ALSO WHEN HEAD GASKET BLOWED YOU CAN DRIVE CAR SHORT DISTANCE START OVERHEATING AND YOU LOOSE ENGINE POWER SUSPECT BLOWED HEAD GASKET.

Low tire pressure light wont go out


The Low Tire Pressure Indicator must be reset using the Radio. This can only be performed if you have the factory radio installed in the vehicle. This vehicle does not come with an active tire pressure management system, and as such, this light must be reset manually.
1.) Turn Radio Off 2.) Hold down disp button for 10 seconds 3.) Setup Menu should display 4.) Scroll through menu to view "Tire Pressure" (use seek buttons) 5.) Select the Tire Pressure option (Press Radio Button 1) 6.) Reset should be displayed on screen (Press disp button) 7.) Tire Pressure Light should reset

How to turn tire pressure light off.


Shouldn't really be necessary to do anything to reset it if the system is operating properly.

"The system will automatically update and the TPM warning lamp will extinguish once the updated tire pressures have been received. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 10 minutes above 15 mph (25 km/h) to receive this information."

"A system fault can occur by any of the following scenarios:
1) Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same Radio Frequencies as the TPM sensors.
2) Installing some form of aftermarket window tinting that affects radio wave signals.
3) Lots of snow or ice around the wheels or wheel housings.
4) Using tire chains on the vehicle.
5) Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM sensors."

Also, if you have the premium TPM system, the spare tire being low could trigger it, or with either the base or premium system, if you have a flat and change to a spare, the original flat tire could keep it from re-setting. And of course, a faulty sensor could be the problem.

There is a re-setting tool, but that should only be needed if the tire positions are changed (like if you rotate your tires), and that's only so that it can accurately tell you which tire is low, as opposed to turning off a warning light.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Reseting the Lights


To reset the low tire pressure light, take off the fuse panel located on the driver's side when you open the door it should be right there. There is a red reset button hold it for 10 secs then let go and push it again which will cause the low tire pressure light to flash, then hold the button for an additional 5 secs or until you three beeps then it will go off. The same goes for the change oil light as well. Hope this helps.
