Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 2003 chevy s-10 that displays "service engine light" constantly. Also, the horn does not work. I have replaced the engine coolant thermostat and oxygen sensor which needed replacing. The "service engine light" and horn still do not work. How do I reset the light or turn it off? Help.

    My temp gauge will not go higher than 1 notch above bottom. I have a 2003 Chevy 2D Blazer and it runs perfect. My temp just won't seem to heat up and my heater in turn isn't heating up. I believe its the thermostat but wanted some other opinions and if someone could help me locate it on the car.

    Thanks

Take it to your local trustworthy mechanic. They have a nifty little gadget called a code sensor and they plug it into your car and turn the light off. It takes about 2 seconds. MOST mechanics will do this free of charge, especially one that you frequent. It's a simple thing. You can buy a code sensor online OR at a parts store, but they aren't cheap and don't always work if you don't know how to use it. I suggest calling a few mechanics and finding a nice one that will reset your light for free.
Good Luck.
As for the horn, it's probably a fuse.

Hello Narisol,


Excerpt from the 2003 Owners Manual.


Passlock

Your vehicle is equipped with the Passlock theft-deterrent
system. Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent system.
Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is turned with a valid key. If a correct key is not used or the ignition lock cylinder
is tampered with, the fuel system is disabled and the vehicle
will not start. During normal operation, he SECURITY light
will turn off approximately five seconds after the key is turned to
RUN. If the engine stalls and the SECURITY light flashes,
wait about 10 minutes until the light stops flashing before trying
to restart the engine. Remember to release the key from START as
soon as the engine starts. If the engine does not start after
three tries, the vehicle needs service. If the engine is running and the
SECURITY light comes on, you will be able to restart the engine
if you turn the engine off. However, your Passlock system is not
working properly and must be serviced by your dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by Passlock at this time. You may also want to
check the fuse. See Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-85.
See your dealer for service. In an emergency, call the M
Roadside Assistance Center. See Roadside Assistance Program on
page 7-5.


Excerpt from the 2003 Owners Manual.

Testing the Alarm The alarm can be tested by following these steps:
1.
From inside the vehicle, Iower the driver's window and open
the driver's door.
2.
Activate the system by locking the doors with the power door
lock switch while the door is open, or with the remote keyless entry transmitter.
3.
Get out of the vehicle, close the door and wait for the SECURITY light to go out.
4.
Then reach in through the window, unlock the door with the manual
door lock and open the door. This should set off the alarm. When
the alarm is set the power door unlock switch is not operational.
If the alarm does not sound when it should but the headlamps flash, check to see if the horn works. The horn fuse may be blown. To
replace the fuse, see Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-85.
If the alarm does not sound or the headlamps do not flash, the
vehicle should be serviced by your dealer.

What does service tire monitor mean on a 2005 chevy tahoe means


It means you have a malfunction in the TPMS system. First you can try to do a reset as follows: 1. key on, engine off, parking brake on. 2. turn park lights on and off 4 times you will hear a horn chirp twice, you are in program mode. Start at L/F tire release air for 10 seconds, wait 15 seconds until horn chirp, after chirp go to R/F tire do the same until horn chirp then R/R let air out til the chirp then L/R do the same after the L/R chirp, turn key off and you are done, note you have only 5 min. to complete. If you do not hear horn chirp at each tire, you will have to start from beginning. When complete, remember to add air to each tire, 35 psi is recommended.
If that does not work you probably have a bad TPMS sensor, which will have to be replaced. Some auto parts stores will test your sensors for free, so check around.
