you need to service your 4wd.

It means that the computer that controls the 4wd has detected a problem and set a code. You will need to have the system checked with a scan tool.

If the service engine light keeps coming on and the code reads?æevap?æ?ævacuum that means the part needs to be replaced. A auto shop can help take care of the repairs.

Go to the engine oil life display. Hold the display button in until the engine oil life reads 100 percent. Release the button and the service light will go off.

Seems kinda crazy but GM started adding that warning light to its cars and trucks in the early 90's. This light comes on when you first start the car (along with many of the other warning lights) so that you can verify that the light bulbs in all those warning lights are working and not burned out. BUT, if the CHECK GAUGES warning light comes on while driving, it means one or more of the engine monitoring gauges is reading out of a normal range. Example: The temperature gauge needle usually reads at or about halfway up the gauge when the car is at proper orperating temperature. Should the engine begin to overheat and the gauge reads into the upper portion of the gauge (the red area) then the CHECK GAUGES light will illuminate along with a high pitched buzzing sound. For many years most American cars had all warning lamps and no gauges save for the fuel level and speedo. Some cars had an option from the factory of gauges to monitor engine temperature and alternator output/battery voltage and oil pressure, but few were ever equipped with these gauges.... Then in the mid 80's or so many cars came standard with AT LEAST an engine temperature gauge....But drivers still failed to keep a watch on the gauges and GM elected to add the CHECK GAUGES light.....Kinda like warning lights DELUIXE!!!!! Now you have gauges, warning lights, and audible waring to let you know, you are not going to go too much further in this vehicle without making some sort of repairs... You can get a check engine light reader from Kragen -- they will usually let you borrow it at the store if you are just going out into the parking lot -- it will tell you what went wrong so you can then repair it

ive been lucky enough to have driven a few of these vehicles. The "check engine light" is usually on the left side of the dashboard indicators and is actually a small message that reads "service engine soon".

There are too many codes to list. You must get the code read at a service center to figure out what the problem is. The single most important thing to remember is that if a check engine light is flashing you must shut the vehicle down immediatley.Autozone reads codes for free.

It indicates the mileage before the next service is due. If it reads '0' then the service is due now. If it reads with a minus '-' then it is overdue by the mileage shown. Note: this is easy to reset (no tools required) and is usually done by the garage mechanic after a service but can easily be done by a competent DIY-er.

i would recommend getting gas when that happens. perhaps take it to the mechanic to fix the gauge

It is quite simple. Turn ignition on, but do not start, press MENU, until display reads "service interval". Check the interval value displayed, and simply change it to another value using STEP. Press and hold RESET for approximately 3 seconds. Scroll further and display will read "change service interval". Select yes. Turn off ignition.

The person who is having a bar mitzvah reads a certain part of the Torah, depending on when his bar mitzvah is. He also sings various prayers with the Cantor and gets blessed by the Rabbi and his parents. After the service comes the party!!

it reads if your motor is knocking. say bad rod bearings or loose valves. it will kick your check engine light on if it reads knock from the motor.

Need help resetting the maintenance service indicator on the 2007 GL450. I changed the oil at 6500 miles and reset the indicator 1st time (service A). Now the Service B light is on and odometer only reads 11,000 miles. I read the manual, it says light should not be reset for oil changes done outside of recommended service. I accidentaly reset it first time now it is out of sequence. Any help would be greatly appreciated. __________________

try checking your brake fluid level. some of the older vehicles had a sensor that would "alert" the driver of the fluid level. some cars the brake light in the car would remain on until the fluid level is back to optimum. it may have disabled your abs from a lack of fluid

go to your service provider and tell them that your sim card is faulty.
