Unfortunaltly you can't turn the light off unless the repair is made. It is a safety feature. And yes, the little monitor inside the rim has gone bad or cracked. These are easily replaced by a tire technision, but the cost of the (TPMS)tire moniter is pricey.

Chevy Cobalt TPMS issue


Most GM cars can be done by holding both lock and unlock buttons on the key fob. The horn will then sound and the you let the air out of the tire. The hot will sound once detected. Start at the left front and then the right front, right rear and left rear. The horn will sound again indicating the procedure has been completed.

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.

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

My service tire monitor light came on on my 2008 cobalt. What should I do.


This means you need to check the pressure in your tires. One or more is below the recomended limit. Fill it up and drive for a mile. Light should go out.

SVC Tire Monitor


If this warning came up soon after the tire was replaced then the most likely cause is the tire installer damaged the pressure sensor inside the tire. They are easy to damage.

Error message "svc tire monitor"


The owners manual will not give the following information but chapter 3 around pges 40 -49 will tell you how to get into tire monito learning section. 1. Take all four valvestem caps off. 2. Find a tool such as a small diameter philips screwdriver that will work to let air out of the valvestem. A common aluminum 1/8" rivet (round end into valve stem) works very well. 3. Add air so that the tire pressures are all 40+ psi (do not exceed the tire's max. inflation rating on the sidewall). 4. Turn key to on position. 5. Apply parking brake. 6. Press and hold lock/unlock down at the same time (for about 3 seconds) on the key fob until the horn honks and left front park light flashes. Without keyless or remtoe entry fob use the Driver Information buttons on the left of sterring wheel. Press and hold bothe DIC and reset button at the same time for abot 10 seconds this will bring up the personal menu use DIC button to get to Tire monitor menu press and hold reset button untill horn honks and left front light flahes then continue with step 7. 7. Start at the LF tire. 8. Let air out for 4 seconds - count it out (one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four one-thousand). 9. Wait for about 15 seconds* for the honk (sometimes it'll honk right away). 10. Repeat 7 and 8 for the RF tire. 11. Repeat 7 and 8 for the RR tire. 12. Repeat 7 and 8 for the LR tire. 13. With all four now done, the system will give it's final multi-honk completion note. 14. Use a quality gauge to set your final pressures (a good gauge will exactly match the sensor readings). 15. Replace all four valvestem caps. *If you've waited fifteen seconds for the honk and nothing has happened. Don't panic - Simply repeat 8 and 9 again as there is a two minute window to do each tire sensor.
