Question about 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT

1 Answer

Stabilitrack icon comes on frequently whilte drivin, turn ignition off and itdoes not appear again. Driving the next day it likely will. Is there any harm while driving with the icon on?

Stabilitrack icon comes on frequently while driving and the indicator instructs you to seek service. Next startup the indicator is off. The next startup and some driving the icon frequently comes on again, no real pattern. Can you do harm by driving with the icon on? In northern Michigan we often drive with the auto or 4wheel drive selection. How important to get this serviced? Thanks, Tom Whittingham.

Probably going to be the steering wheel position sensor. Keep track of how you park, keep wheel straight when you park will keep the light off. Most of us just live with it and park with wheels straight.

SOURCE: How to reset Service 4wheel drive warning light on 2005 ChevTahoe

I have a 2005 Tahoe that recently had a similar problem. To resolve, I did the following.

  1. Change the transfer case fluid (Which you already did)
  2. Change Gears to 4L while in neutral, change back to drive, and drive slowly 50 yards or so.
  3. Change Gears to 4H while in neutral, change back to drive, and drive slowly 50 yards or so.
  4. Change Gears to 2H while in neutral, change back to drive, and drive normally for a couple of miles.
This will cycle the fluid within your transfer case, and hopefully clean out the sensor. I did this, and my Service 4WD light went away after one day of normal driving. Hope this helps. Note: When I went into 4L the first go around, it had a hard time shifting due to non use. I changed between 4H and 4L a few times until it got smoother.

The system will need to be scanned for "trouble codes" These are codes that are stored in the computer systems to give an indication as to where the problem is.

SOURCE: 2004 trailblazer. Service 4wheel drive light comes

The 4WD in this vehicle is computer controlled. There will be diagnostic codes stored that will aid in proper diagnosis and repair of this problem. As there are several common / expensive failure items, it is best to have the codes read using a proper scanner. Some of the cheaper code readers may not work in this instance and a more professional scanner may be needed to retrieve the codes. Once you know the codes, a better, accurate diagnosis can be made.

FWIW - The encoder motor on the transfer case is a common failure item. The instrument panel switch module is also.

Reseting Mercedes service light 1998-2001 BMW


The "Wrench" symbol will appear in the odometer field to indicate it is time to service the vehicle. To reset, turn the ignition key to position 2. Immediately press the button next to the display twice within one second. The present status for days or distance will be displayed. Within 10 seconds, turn the ignition key to the 0 position. Press and hold the button while turning the key to position 2 again. The status for days or distance will be displayed again; continue to hold the button. After 10 seconds, a signal will sound and the display will show 10,000 miles (15,000 km). Release the button.

Sometimes car shuts off while driving and then comes back on the next day


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

Can I reset the idrive on my BMW 645 as it works for a couple of weeks and then stops ?


Hi there,

Well you may follow the step below to reset idrive -
Firstly with the ignition switched on, set the odometer trip meter back to zero by pushing it once. Then switch the ignition back off again.
1. Switch the ignition on so that the battery, Oil and Parking brake lights are displayed and the key is ready to start the engine, but note you don't actually start the car.

2. Press the odometer reset button for between 5 and 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the center appears in the top window between the clocks (where the outside temperature / time or date normally appears) - this is the "Service" icon.

3. Release the odometer button briefly and press again straight away which brings up a picture of the Brake Fluid symbol (same as the one that the i-drive shows when you look at the Service menu).

4. If you want to reset the Brake Fluid interval for another 2 years then keep holding the odometer button until the word "RESET?" appears at the bottom of the lower window.

5. Release the button briefly and push it in again and hold for about 5 - 10 seconds until the new date appears in the bottom window. You can then switch the ignition off and the new Brake Fluid date will appear in the service menu on the i-drive screen next time you switch on.

6. If you want to reset the Oil, Microfilter or Brake Pad indicators then you will need to follow the same sequence as steps 1 and 2 above, but when you get to step 3 and the brake Fluid icon appears, just release the button and press again and the next service item will appear.

7. You can continue releasing and pressing the button until the required service item icon appears for the one you want to reset. As soon as it does then hold in the button in until the word "RESET?" appears again as in step 4 above. Once the word "RESET?" has appeared, you need to release the button briefly and hold it in again for about 5 - 10 seconds until it is replaced by the new service interval figure (as per step 5 above). hope this helps...

Good Luck
Regards

I have a mitsubishi lancer cedia model 2000 frequent stall when driving i switch it off and on again in the ignition and come to live again for a few miles and does the same again what could be the cause


If you have the GDI model,they were designed to run on very lean air/fuel ratio.
Once the mileage is up a bit a lot of problems can be traced back to a high carbon build up in the intake manifold.

The Water light? you may have over heated the car, also you may have caused a crack in the engine block by driving the car after the Temp light came on, Check the Thermostat, This may have caused the Light to come on and can cause some major problems if not replaced. Good luck!

Well when you turn you key on can you hear your fuel pump come on in the back? you should... does your key switch give you problems putting the key in or out or even turning it. it could even be your ignition switch.. both of them can run up to 200 bucks.
