Oh that's a first I never heard that one before. I bet u have an electrical problem. The 2005 and 2006 Cobalts are notorious for a wide range of problems. I guess GMC couldn't work out the bugs. If your car is still under warranty you might want to take it to the dealership. If take it to Autozone or any where they have computer scanners that won't charge you an arm or a leg.

Where are all the ground wires located on a 2008 chevy cobalt?


It wouldn't be a ground problem If it were the whole instrument cluster would be dead . Checking the BCM an the IPC for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes is the proper way to diagnose this type problem . Not worrying about grounds .
Odometer
The vehicle odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the body control module (BCM) and is sent via the serial data circuit to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) for display. The BCM calculates and stores the mileage based on the vehicle speed serial data information from the PCM/ECM. The IPC displays the season odometer information from the BCM in the driver information center (DIC). The odometer will display error if the IPC detects an invalid odometer data from the BCM. After an invalid odometer data is received from the BCM, the IPC will display the last known odometer reading for 1.5 seconds before error is displayed in the DIC.
Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed based on serial data message from the body control module (BCM). The BCM receives vehicle speed data from the PCM/ECM via the serial data circuit. The speedometer will default to 0 km/h (0 mph) if:
• The PCM/ECM detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit.
• The BCM detects a loss of serial data communications with the PCM/ECM.
• The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the BCM.

Your best bet would be to take it to the dealer !

Turn the ignition key to 'ON' and press the odometer button until the display reads ODO (not Trip A or B).
Turn the ignition key to OFF.
Hold in the same button you used in step 1.
While holding the button in, turn the ignition key to ON.
The ODOMETER will change to:
5 dashes - - - - -
Then 4 dashes - - - -
Then 3 dashes - - -
Then 2 dashes - -
Then 1 dash -
THEN all zeros 0 0 0 0 0

Then the Maintenance Required light should blink and go out.

Chevy cavalier 2005 87000 miles remote flakey, odometer won't display milage but will display trip data?


Hello William,

The key fobs are wearing out and need to be replaced. Sometimes taking them apart and cleaning the switch contacts and battery contacts will extend their lives but they are not built to last.

I believe your vehicles ECU sends the mileage data to the instrument panel cluster...in which the LCD odometer display has failed.

I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu and I used the radio buttons to switch from degrees F to C and it changed the odometer from kilometers to miles and I can't remember which buttons i used. Could you help with...


With the radio off, hold in the tune button in, until it says " setting" on the radio display. Then push the seek button until you find the odometer setting, and then push the tune button in again, and this sould change it back.

I need to reset the maintenance required light on my 2005 toyota camry le


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change2.gif.
