Question about 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Have a 2008 Chevy Cobalt, tire sensor is staying on all the tire, not reading the tire pressure at all, has 2 dashes instead. Called and talked to dealership mechanic, he said that re-registering the tires would solve the problem. Manual says to hold the lock & unlock on key fob and it will start the registration process. Can get the registration to start with the first tire but will not move onto the second tire. After the first attempt to re-register the tire sensors the light went out for about 30 miles and then came back on with the same problem. Don't want to have to go pay $30 to get someone else to register the tires.

On vehicles equipped with keyless entry, simultaneously press the keyless entry transmitters lock and unlock buttons until a double horn chirp sounds indicating the Learn Mode has been enabled. The left front turn signal will also be illuminated....Next

  • Increase/decrease the tire pressure for 8-10 seconds then wait for a horn chirp. The horn chirp may occur before or up to 30 seconds after the 8-10 second pressure increase/decrease time period has been reached. Once the horn chirp has sounded, the sensor information is learned and the turn signal in the next location to be learned will illuminate....Next
    1. After the horn chirp has sounded and the right front turn signal is illuminated, repeat step 2 for the remaining 3 sensors in the following order:
    1. Right front
    2. Right rear
    3. Left rear
    4. When the left rear sensor has been learned and a double horn chirp has sounded, the learn process is complete and the RCDLR exits the learn mode.
    5. Ignition OFF, adjust all tires to the recommended pressures. Refer to Vehicle Certification, Tire Placard, Anti-Theft, and Service Parts ID Label

    Engine power reduced appeared on the DIC of 2008 chevy cobalt

    Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

    Yellow exclamation mark on dash

    thats tire pressure its a sensor that reads your pressure and once you get low it light the dash indicator (yellow exclamation point) and if you check the pressure yourself with a tire gauge and it reads fine then you have a bad sensor.

    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

    All you should need to do is check and set all tire pressures and make sure to check the spare also, after all tires are set with air you then drive a few blocks and the light should reset if the light does not reset then you will need to find out which wheel has a bad air pressure sensor, this is done with a tool that is put on the valve stem or a scan tool to see which tire is showing the wrong pressure, hope this helps.

    Why does reduce engine power light comes on chevy

    That is a hard problem to pin point without knowing what codes the computer has stored. It can be any number or sensors or engine problems.
