2 possibilities: Starter or solenoid- When you turn the key if theres no noise, its probably the starter. but the best way to check is turn the key to "on" position and "jump" the solenoid terminals. The solenoid should be on the fenderwell somewhere, just follow your positive cable until you find it. Take a pair of pliers and cotnnect the two terminals. If the starter does not turn over, the starter is at fault.

Tire monitor


When you have tires rotated, you have to go to
a place that knows how to reset the TPMS for
the tire locations

No idea why your temp gauge has an issue

My girlfriend has an 01 Impala that just keeps costing me. Ive fixed several things and worked my way around others. The LOW TIRE PRESURE light keeps coming on even though there are pretty good tires all...


For the engine noise, all I can tell you is that you must locate the source of the noise. You probably have a bad bearing, worn out alternator, or something similar. You should try removing the serpentine belt and start the engine to see if the noise is still there. If it is, then there is something wrong internally like a timing chain or something. If the noise is gone, then you need to inspect all the pullies that are driven by the serpentine belt including alternator, power steering, A/C, idler pulley, tensioner pully, etc.

The tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) can be pretty picky.

1. Check all of your tire sizes to make sure they are all the same size. I have seen many problems with people putting used tires on the vehicles that don't match the other tires in size. I have also seen this caused by tires that are the same numerical size but one is new and the rest are worn-out causing a difference in the circumference of the tire. This makes the tires rotate at different speeds and makes the TPMS "think" there is a low tire.

2. the tire pressures need to be checked with a GAUGE. You could have one or more tires OVER INFLATED and this will also cause the light to come on. I have seen lots of problems with people that keep adding air to the tires, but don't ever use a gauge (they just use the "eyeball gauge"). This does not work with a TPMS. They ALL need to be inflated to the pressure that is on the lable inside the drivers door. They also must all be within 2 Psi of each other.

NOTE: After adjusting tire pressures, it can take up to 30 minutes of straight line driving to get the light to go out. Do not expect it to go out right away, it is not going to happen unless you reset the TPMS with a scan tool.

If you are certain that the problem is not being caused by tire sizes or tire pressures, then the TPMS should be scanned to check for fault codes. There could be several other reasons why the light could keep coming on (bad wheel sensor, communications faults, internal TPMS module failure, etc.)

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage or a key.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems. The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

We have checked the all four tires for pressure and even checked the spare tire for pressure. Light still stays on and yes we have tried holding the button down to turn off the light. please help!


You have a defective or lazy sensor in one of the tires. You can try letting out as much air as possible in each tire, then refill each tire,checking the pressure with a gauge of course. This may reset the TPM (tire pressure monitor sensor)

If the light that is coming on is the service tire monitor then this has nothing to do with the tires being low it means there is a problem with the tire monitoring system and they should check for codes.The low tire pressure or check tire pressure are if the tires are low and need air.There is a service bulletin on this it is 07-03-16-004B.If they can`t find the problem they should be calling technical assistance for help.This is a support group from general motors that advises them on what steps to take if they can`t find the problem on their own.I have not had any questions here for this concern.But I had a few when I was at the dealership.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2007 Ford F-150 a orange light with a horshoe with an exclamation point in the center is blinking in the dash. What does this mean?


well maybe u don't have a manual, so here is the difinition from the owners manual.
Low tire pressure warning (if
equipped):
Illuminates when your
tire pressure is low. If the light
remains ON at start up or while
driving, the tire pressure should be
checked. Refer to Inflating Your Tires in the Tires, Wheels and
Loading
chapter. When the ignition is first turned to ON, the light will
illuminate for 3 seconds to ensure the bulb is working. If the light does
not turn ON, have the system inspected by your authorized dealer. For
more information on this system, refer to Understanding Your Tire
Pressure Monitoring System
in the Tires, Wheels and Loading
chapter.

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.
