What does it mean when your SVC tire monitor comes on?
When your tire is low, the tire monitor system will kick in. A light will come on in the message center on your dashboard or an actual message will flash across the screen, telling you that you have a low tire. Some cars even will tell you how much pressure you have on each tire in the vehicle.
How do you reset the SVC tire monitor on a 2008 Chevy Malibu?
Turn your vehicle’s key to the “On” position without starting the vehicle. Push the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light flashes three times, then let go. Start the car and wait for about 20 minutes for the tire pressure sensor to refresh.
Is it okay to drive with SVC tire monitor on?
Since these systems often break down for reasons that have nothing to do with air pressure, you can still drive the car even though this light is on. But if you do, you should always keep an eye on the tire pressure.
