Service vehicle soon like comes on after 25 minutes of running then it locks out my radio and causes the security light to also come on. I've had it on 3 different scopes & was told the codes were


I don't know who told you that , a semi- clogged catalytic will cause a low power issue an maybe a couple of DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes P0420 - P0430 ,Has nothing to do with the alarm system ! Do you mean Service vehicle soon or SERVICE ENGINE SOON ?
SERVICE VEHICLE SOON
The IPC illuminates the SERVICE VEHICLE SOON indicator in the message center when the PCM or the BCM detects certain non-emissions related malfunctions. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM or from the BCM requesting illumination. What problem are you having with alarm system ? If you have a starting issue it's the Anti-Theft system not alarm system . The alarm would go off if you vehicle was broke into . I don't know what shop you took it to but did you try a dealer ?

2006 chevy aveo check engine light (code # p0315)


I took it in to a different mechanic and am told that the car will not "learn" the cps. It will clear the CEL but as soon as the key is put in the ignition it comes back on He suggested putting in the original crank sensor but that one is cracked so do I need to get an ac/delco or gm sensor instead of what I got from autozone or how do I get it to recognize the sensor we put in?

We did check the fuses and that is not the problem.

You have a bad intake or exhaust valve

Check Lights are just an indication of a system

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. What does it mean when the anti brake light, service engine soon, and traction off light comes on at the same time?


I am assuming its not the service engine soon light it is probably the service vehicle soon light, There are 2 lights service vehicle soon upper left side, and service engine soon upper right side.

When all these come on at the same time it is the wheel bearing sensor. Usually the wheel bearing needs to be replaced which houses the sensor. A sure way to check is to press your sls button by your shifter and see if the light goes out, If it does not, u will need to have a wheel bearing put in.

Low acceleration on incline but P0101 code gave bad maf sensor


Unless the inclines your talking about are high elevations above sea level, I would have an ASE MasterTechnician do a compression test on the vehicle. These guys will know right away where your engine or powertrain stands.

Service vehicle soon light came on, but I should not need service. Oil recently changed, brake work done, car running fine. Thanks


This is a warning from the computer to let you know that one or more of the many sensors monitoring the systems in the vehicle has a problem. With the light on, take it to Auto Zone, NAPA or Schucks to have them attach their code reader to determine what the problem actually is. They will usually offer this service for free as they want you to purchase the needed parts from them to fix the problem if you do the work yourself. If not your mechanic can resolve the issue. Many times the problem is simply an O2 sensor needs replaced. Good luck to you

2001 chrysler sebring oil pressure light comes on when the car is stopped at red lights while moving the light never comes on .Another question i have is why does the air conditioner sound so loud outside...


The oil pressure light is a serious problem...this needs to be looked at right away, or you face a seized engine (one that no longer moves). It sounds like the oil pump will need to be replaced. The reason the light goes out while moving, is that the engine is running faster, so the worn-out pump is able to create enough pressure to shut the light off. Don't hesitate to get this fixed ASAP! As for the A/C, it could be due to a lack of oil in the system (due to a leak) or a worn out drive clutch or belt.

Blue smoke but no lights on the problem


blue smoke on startup is generally from worn valve guides or bad stem seals on same (not really terrible as long as it stays the same) It will run rough for a minute 'till the oil in the cylinders is cleared out. Service engine light is pretty much on its own timer and does not mean anything but it's there to annoy you into going to the dealer. If O2 sensor was bad, it would eventually put the red check engine light on.

Anti lock light and so on , is on


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems.
