What does SVC tire monitor mean on a Chevy Malibu?
A Chevy “service tire monitor system” warning can mean one of two things. The first is that your tire pressure is suboptimal and requires adjusting to manufacturer-recommended levels. The second meaning applies if the warning does not go away after filling the tires or if a flashing TPMS light accompanies it.
How do you reset the SVC tire monitor on a 2009 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.
Can you 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.
