The speedo needle stepper motor is defective, remove the instrument cluster and send it out for repair. This is a common problem on this year of GM all models.

2010 cobalt need 2 know how 2 reset low tire pressure monitor


The low tire pressure warning should go out if you set all of the tire pressures to the correct pressure, then drive the vehicle for about a mile. You should not have to "relearn" the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) unless the tires are (A.) rotated into different positions or (B.) There is a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.

For more information, you can read the information in your Owner's Manual. Here is a link to a pdf version 2009 Cobalt owners manual. (The information and procedures are the same for 2008 - 2010 Cobalts) The TPMS section starts on page 5-64

P0501 code on 2004 dodge ram, how to repiar


Causes A P0501 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
  • The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not reading (functioning) properly
  • There is a broken/frayed wire leading to the vehicle speed sensor
  • The vehicle's PCM is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle
Possible Solutions The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
Next, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.
If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor. Again, the exact procedure wil depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Speedometer registers lower speed than car is actually traveling.no check engine light. dealer says can't diagnose without light


If the wheels are stock? The speedometer is a stand alone computer for the speed, And if its not correct the dealer can send it out to calibrate it back to factory specs. Some clusters allow techs to put in tire size to correct calibration, And im pretty sure yours can be set. But only by a dealer.

Stabily system diabled - error


Your stability control uses the ABs wheel speed Sensors and the steering collumn sensor to know "when you need more stability". It sounds as if the front wheel speed sensor is sending bad info due to:
A) corrosion under the sensor causing erratic readings
B) front wheel bearing failing causing erratic readings
C) column sensor failing causing erratic readings


The GM dealer is the only place I know to have THOSE components tested. You can change any of these sensors yourself once you know which one it is. The "service stability" indicator is on because one of the sensors is not giving correct data, and the default mode is to disable the system. 

Good luck and hope this helps,

Clunking sound when going over bumps, especially at lower speeds


The lower control arm bushings in this car are not the best quality you should check them and also sway bar links and bushings are very common.
