Question moved from Cars and Trucks to Scales.

Home scales are not capable of being calibrated. They are done in the factory to a fairly strict standard. Only commercial scales are capable of recalibrations and that has to be done by a technician, stamped and certified by certificate.

The closest is a 'Tare' which guarantees zero. Normally, press on, and momentarily press On again.

Unless you have a certified weight, you have nothing to calibrate against. Even a pound of butter or 2 pounds of sugar, is an approximation. You would need an old scale shop keepers weight with the lead filled hole in the bottom, with the numbered, certified stamp impressed into the lead.

My 2007 checy impala read "calibration complete" what does that mean ????

CALIBRATION COMPLETE
Refer to Electronic Compass Calibration do you have an owners manual ?
Compass Calibration
The compass direction will show CAL if it needs to be calibrated. Before calibrating the compass, drive the vehicle to an area that is magnetically clean (free of large metallic objects).
  1. Turn ON the ignition.
  2. Before calibrating the compass, make sure the compass is set to the variance zone in which the vehicle is travelling. See Compass Magnetic Variation Adjustment below.
  3. Press the vehicle information button until the PRESS TO CALIBRATE COMPASS screen is displayed.
  4. Press the set/reset button to start the compass calibration.
  5. The DIC will display CALIBRATING: DRIVE IN CIRCLES. Drive the vehicle in circles at less than 8 km/h (5 mph) to complete the calibration. The DIC will display CALIBRATION COMPLETE when the calibration is complete.

Need to reset them they are only weighing up to 7st 11lb and i am heavier than that thnx

if they are digital then turn them on and wait until the dial settles down
it should read zero (00000) stand on the scales and wait until it flashes and then stops at a weight
if it is still 7 stone it could be a battery problem or if they don't read 00000 before you step on them there may be a small screw that can be adjusted to get the first setting right
you can test the accuracy by doing something simple like putting a known weight on the scale ( 1lb of sugar -new packet ) and see what he reading is
keep adding known weights and if the multiples do not equal what is on the gauge reading then they should be returned if new of junked if used

Electric window wont stay up

It sounds like you may have a bad switch. It could possibly be removed, cleaned and reassembled/ reinstalled and work fine, otherwise it will have to be replaced.

The oil pressure at idel is fine however when you put a load on the engine it will drop to 0 and when the load is off the pressure will go back off. Is it a oil pump or gauge?

to check the gauge you need to remove the wire from the sending unit and ground it for an instant with the ign. on. a good gauge will go to the top of the scale. if the gauge goes to top of scale then replace sending unit. if the gauge does not go to the top of scale replace the gauge. also check your wiring from gauge to sending unit for faulty wires. if all of this is good then your pump i partly pluged at the screen or faulty and u will need to replace it. hope this will help!!!

I have a 1993 Toyota Camry and it has been an excellent car to me. The ONLY probelm I have with this car is, it hesitates when I try to accelerate. What is the problem? Please help, Thanks!!

Try putting a can of fuel injector cleaner cleaner in the gas tank. This will not fix it instantly but will improve as time goes by.

Tire pressure reset will not reset

Labatche822,
The process for resetting your Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) is below.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards.

To reset (calibrate) the system:
1. Turn the ignition switch to RUN.
2. Press the GAGE INFO button on the DIC until
TIRE PRESSURE appears on the display.
3. Press and hold the DIC RESET button for about five
seconds. After five seconds, the display will show
TIRE PRESSURE RESET. If TIRE PRESSURE
RESET does not appear on the display after about
five seconds, see your dealer for service. After you
release the DIC RESET button, TIRE PRESSURE
NORMAL will appear on the display.
The system completes the calibration process during
driving. During the first 10 to 25 miles (15 to 40 km) of
driving, the system will not alert you if a tire is high or
low. After 25 to 100 miles (40 to 160 km), the
system will only alert you about pressure differences of
12 psi (85 kPa) or more. After about 100 miles (160 km)
of driving, the system will alert you if one tire is
10 psi (69 kPa) different from the other three tires.

2003 chevy impala low air pressure message light stays on how do i re program it?

If by low air air pressure, you mean the tire pressure sensor, here is the way to reset.
To reset (calibrate) the system: The tire pressure
monitor system can be reset two ways. With the ignition position at ON, pull the interior lamps control to the ON and OFF settings three times. It can also be reset through the radio using the
following steps:
1. Turn the ignition to ACC or ON and turn the radio off.
2. Press and hold the TUNE DlSP button on the radio for at least five seconds until SETTINGS is displayed.
3. Press the SEEK SCAN up or down arrow to scroll through the main menu.
4. Scroll until TIRE MON appears on the display.
5. Press the 1 PREV or 2 NEXT button to enter the submenu. RESET will be displayed.
6. Press the TUNE DlSP button to reset. A chime will be heard to verify the new setting and DONE will be displayed for one second.
7. Once the monitor has been reset, scroll until EXIT appears on the display.
8. Press the TUNE DlSP button to exit programming. A chime will be heard to verify exit.

The system completes the calibration process during
driving. The system normally takes 15 to 20 minutes of driving
in each of three speed ranges to "learn" tire pressures. The speed ranges are 15 to 40 mph (25 to 65 km/h), 40 to 65 mph (65 to 105 km/h) and above 65 mph (105 km/h). When learning is complete, the system will alert you after two to eight minutes if a tire is 12 psi (83 kPa) different from the other three tires. Detection thresholds may be higher and detection times may
be longer on rough roads, curves and at high speeds. The system is not capable of detection at speeds greater than 70 mph (110 km/h).

Almost all of the message center items are accessed through the menu on the radio. You should be able to find what you need be getting in the menu and looking around. Hope this is what you were looking for?
