Question about 2007 Chevrolet Colorado (Extended Cab) New Cars

1 Answer

Trouble light on dashboard just came on

I just got home from work and there was a yellow light that seemed to be a picture of an engine glaring at me from my dashboard. It sits right below the red seat belt light.

I have a 2007 Chevy Colorado with 13,000 miles on it. It is a 2 wheel drive and a 4 speed auto.

Now what? I can't seem to find my handbook

Check all fluid levils if all are fine trying to disconnect + batt. cable for about 15 min and then re connect that should reset your coumputer... or for about 15- to 35 $ you can go to any shop and they can dyno it and let you know what thwe problem is if none found ask them to dump the code

Car stays in 2nd gear all of the time. (Limp mode) Fix Engine light stays on, D green light blinks constantly for automatic transmission Honda Accord 2005


Ah, I see. You want to outsmart the computer? Right logic, wrong computer. I think the problem is not in the transmission, but it is the engine computer that has communicated with the transmission computer and put the car in limp-in mode. The fix engine light is sent from the engine computer, and this is the main computer in the car, the main drive train computer, if you will.
The short answer is yes it will reset, by just unhooking the battery. Won't do any harm. Start it up about an hour later, and be sure and let it warm up to normal operating temperature (closed loop) before you take it out for a test drive. Otherwise you may be miles from home in 2nd gear limp-in mode again.
The real fix is to talk to your car...like communicate with the computer and get those trouble codes read...talk to it nice, not the abrupt tone of the glaring idiot light, and maybe it will respond in a kinder, gentler easy to fix diagnostic code!!!!
Good luck.

The yellow "check" light is glowing on my Honda's


That is your Check Engine Light. There is a trouble code detected by the car's computer. Have the codes read to find out what the problem is.

WHAT'S EPC MEANS ON THE DASHBOARD


EPC = Engine Power Control it's the engine control module yellow warning light.
You need access and erase the EPC memory by DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to reset the EPC, and turn off the EPC yellow light.

Car starts and engine running but then cuts out the yellow motor sign on the dashboard stays on


that dash ligfht is called the check engine light, this means a fault has occured in the electronic engine control system, there are many faults that trigger this light, well over 200, to find out what the problem is you will need to have the system tested for the trouble code that is stored in the computer, anytime the check engine light is on there is a code set in memory

GOOD! I assume the CHECK ENGINE (yellow) light comes on!... correct? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
