Default DIC Monitor thingy.

The gauge thats says check tire pressure etc.

Anyways everytime my car starts the check tire pressure comes on.
Then midway while im driving the system stablity control will come on and say low trac. Also my compus will work for the first 5 minutes and then stop working, no matter how many times i calibrate it.

I brought it to a shop and they ran some codes and none came up for the compus and stabiltrack.

is there anyway to fix it so they work permanently?

Not exactly sure on this one. Seems like it may have better luck in the "everything electrical" section. Maybe crunkfunk or someone else over there can help you. I will try to get this moved over there.

Have you tried re-setting the tire pressure monitor?
as for the compas do you have subs or any large magnets in the trunk?
and does the LOW TRAC light stay on solid?

Tire pressure wont reset unless you it is showing on the DIC, you are rolling, and hold it in untill it says normal. Like Crunk said, any extra electrical item in the trunk and set the compass off. Otherwise the sensor is probably bad. Low Trac will set off anytime you spin the tires. Could be a WSS sensor problem. I remember one member who had one with a loose WSS connection and it was tripping the DIC.

Thread moved to proper section. Electrical and Electronics.

Well i have subs and an amp in the trunk, but the compass works sometimes and sometimes it doesnt.

Also the stability control will come on on the highway in any weather so its not cause im spinning the tires.

Ok so I would check the wheel speed sensor connectors, there is one on each hub, you will see an electrical connector and check if it is tight or has water in it
