Re: Safety issue? "SVC TIRE MONITOR" alert

I did follow the procedure in the manual to test which tires were synched with the monitoring system -FL sensor was not working. Miguel at Harbor Chevrolet assured me that it was *not* a safety issue to drive. As it is a warranty issue, to bring it in when I have other warranty-related service to handle and roll this under the same deductible. I appreciate the feedback here. The assumption in the thread that I am a dude was pretty typical. Why shouldn't a woman be involved in the care and safety of her own car? Just saying

Re: Safety issue? "SVC TIRE MONITOR" alert

Yep back in the olden days (after dinosaurs but before the iphone) we didn't have fancy gadgets to automatically tell us that our tire pressure was low. We had to get out of the car and put one of those tire pressure guages on it.
So yea it shouldn't be dangerous to drive like that.

There are a lot men who seem as dumb as stones when it comes to the so called high tech cars. It is amazing the dumb stuff they do and say.

I'll say it, you go girl, knowledge is key to your safety and not being ripped off by a service dept. or garage.
Very few woman have or desire the knowledge of how their vehicle works so don't be offended if we goof up, no offense intended.
Everyone here started out knowing nothing at one time and even the most seasoned tech, DIY'er, etc. learns something new everyday.

Re: Safety issue? "SVC TIRE MONITOR" alert

I just had my 2010 Malibu LTZ brakes done. It was done by a GM facility and now I keep getting a tire svc monitor reading. When I check the tire pressures, the right front does not give a psi reading shows (--). Do I need to have it repaired or did someone just forget to reset it when changing the brakes?

Re: Safety issue? "SVC TIRE MONITOR" alert

The sensor may be bad or just needs the battery replaced. It could also be that it was replaced and they did relearn the BCM. Either way, take it back to the dealer and have them fix it as part of the repair because it wasn't that way when you went in there.
