Owner and IDOT Trash C5 Corvette, 2:00am, 3/18/11
I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving
had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim
of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild
50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as
long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy,
and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too
much money and too little common sense, you're human.

Corvette reading diagnostic codes on the instrument panel 97- 04 by froggy
I show how to retrieve and use OBD2 diagnostic trouble codes on a 1997 to
2004 C5 Corvette. You do not need a special tool (code reader) to access
these codes. This procedure is not mentioned in the owner's manual. The
codes can be looked up on the internet to help figure out what is wrong
with the car. by froggy

Tire Air Pressure Sensor - What is It - TPMS Warning Light - Reset Tire Pressure Light
Do you know what the auto part in this video is and what it does? Is your
TPMS, Tire Pressure Management Sensor, yellow warning light coming on your
dashboard as you drive?
Most newer vehicles these days have a tire pressure sensor system to
monitor tire pressure inside the tire and relay the message back to the on
board computer. If the warning light is on, first check the tire pressure
in all 5, yes the spare tire will likely have a sensor too. If the tire
pressure is ok in all 5 tires, then you will need to have a mechanic use a
hand held scan tool to test and possibly reset each tire sensor to turn the
warning light off.
In my video above, we were unable to communicate with one of the tire
sensors and had to take the tire off and check the sensor manually. In this
case the battery located inside the tire pressure sensor had died and the
sensor had to be replaced.
The battery life of the TPMS seems to be about 5 years, and most of these
sensors are sealed and the battery is not serviceable.
If your tire pressure warning light (TPMS) is on, check the tire pressure
first, including the spare tire and if you still have the light on then you
will need to seek a mechanic. Discounttire.com and I think Walmart.com auto
department should be able to test and reset the sensors for you and replace
them if needed.
Hope this helps
Relearning The Tire Pressure Monitors WITHOUT The Activation Tool On a Chevy Cobalt - 5/26/2011
Ever wonder how you can relearn the Tire Pressure Monitors without the
activation tool? Well, here it is. Since TPMS has been made mandatory for
all cars since the 2008 model year, I believe GM wanted to design the
system so anyone can do it as standardizing TPMS already further drives up
the cost of new cars; as do so many of the other BS requirements. This
procedure which you see in this video is probably true for all GM's
starting in the 2008 model year.
The only other thing I want to point out is that order does matter
