Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My 2008 chev impala has been telling me to service my tire monitor system. I have just rotated back to all seasons which are the spec size for the car. The winter size I had on were 1 size smaller. I think the system just needs to be reset to re-learn the difference in the size of the tires. How can I reset the system or do I need to to go to dealer for this?

One of the tire pressure sensors may have been incorrectly installed or there may be a problem with this systems control module.
I recommend you bring it back to the shop that sold you the tires and tell them the problem.
Remember 2008 is still under warranty ( if milage is applicable)

Where is the wrench button on a 2008 saturn


Wrench button? If your service tire monitor light came on, you either have a tire pressure out of spec, or you have a problem with the monitoring system. First check your tire pressures, and if that does not turn the light off contact a dealer or reputable tire store.

2006 Chevy Impala SS. Engine light came on while enroute to Jiffy Lube. They said it is coming up as cam shaft. Am taking to Radley Chev. How long does this take approximately & is this dangerous to...


The engine light means you have a code stored that can be read.
A place like Autozone will read it for free.
Only with the code can we tell if it is serious or minor.

Replaced front drivers tire, rotated tires. The car starts shking at 30 miles an hour. What do I need to do?


Rotated and changed tire????changed tires then rotated? well see if this helps.....Check If the Manufacturer Specs on your driver side door. Make sure you have the right tire size and tire pressure. Inspect tires for lumps or uneven wear. NEXT check for a bent or warped rim, Missing weights if they have been balanced(balance if not already done) IF shaking happens in acceleration continue checking if the tires you kept are not worn out on the inside or if your wheel bearings are worn out. (If it happens when braking check your rotors) hopefully its not a bigger deal.

I got slightly larger new tires only on my 08 chevy 2wd silverado now got a "Service Tire Monitor System"


If the tires were the exact size the problem would not be there. Replace the sensor to the size tires or replace the tires back to the same size it was before

Tire pressure monitoring system needs service since it stays on. I had tires rotated recently an8d there were warnings. I had them reajust tire pressures 80 back and 55 front. A new light came on that...


Check to see if the sensors are reconnected. If they are, lower rear tire pressure to 55 to 60 and recheck status light. You will have to turn the engine off and back on to reset.

That is a stretch but it has worked for me on other Chev models.

P.S. Confirm 55 x units mbar KPa Psi with tire pressure gauge.

The abs and trac lights stay on when the engine is running. how do I fix the problem ?


Something as simple as a different tire size can cause the abs to go nuts. I even had it where the two tires were the same size. But a different brand name. Each manufacture has their own tire sizing so not all tires a equal in size. Even though it says on the side of the tire that they are the same size.

Sometimes the cooper inside the insulation of the wires going to the sensors corrodes. Especially on the front units. It reads more ohms than normal but not open and is very intermittent. However moving the wires my make it work for a while. That's why replacing bearings seems to fix the problem but it comes back after a while.

You can test the speed sensors yourself...
Front sensor specs:
956 to 1240 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
at least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand
Rear sensor specs:
950 to 1300 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
At least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand

Here is some information from service bulletins that could be related to the problem. The traction control, antilock brakes, and tire inflation monitor all use wheel speed sensor input.

This first bulletin seems like it could be the problem because engine movement is involved:

GM Corporate Bulletin 00-06-04-049B
This Bulletin covers a problem that can cause multiple failures, one of which is an Antilock brake problem, and covers 2000-2003 Impala and Monte Carlo built prior to 2/03.
Check to make sure the wiring harness adjacent to the AC accumulator/dryer is not rubbing against the ac accumulator chaffing through the insulation of the wires in the harness.

GM Corporate Bulletin 03-05-25-008 overview:
GM front wheel speed sensor harness replacement - 2001-2003 Buick Century, Regal; 2001-2003 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo; 2001-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue; 2001-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
This bulletin is about inspecting the harness going to the front wheel speed sensor for wear from contact with front suspension parts.
Repair harnesses/leads are available that can be spiced onto the main harness.
2001-2003 impala & Monte Carlo – Right side - 10340313
2001-2003 impala & Monte Carlo – Left side - 10340314

My car has been telling me to service my tire monitor system


The service tire monitor warning can come on for many reasons. A sensor may have gone bad, may have been broken if a tire was changed recently, the car needs an updated module and antenna. The system woiuld need to be looked at by a technician.
