Garage
SVS light can have many different meanings from minor to serious.

I highly recommend a good quality OBD code reader. They are available at most auto parts stores. You can also go to an O'rielly's or other auto parts store and usually they can read and or reset any codes you have.

This is all i needed thanks! Now to get it fixed!



The Service Vehicle Soon
message along with this
symbol will come on and a
chime will sound if it
detects a problem on the
vehicle.
Such problems could be the Daytime Running
Lamps (DRL) or an automatic headlamp system
malfunction.
If this happens, see your dealer as soon as possible

Probably oil service. Read the manual for the steps to reset it.

im pretty sure the manual lied. fisrt of all, all of my lghts are fine, and the dlr work great. secondly, today my gurl was driving the car and when she got home, it wouldnt shut off. even with the key out. took it to the shop and they found a bad/melted relay and said another 24hr the car woulda been toasted. not sure if this was the cause of it not starting though. not sure which relay was bad either. anyone ever heard of this happening? think this would be causing my svs light?

f*** shitty dealerships
