  1. According to what I can find GM PIDs for the tire pressure sensors are proprietary and not accessible.
  2. i found an article that said that the drivers side does have a power lock for Onstar but that is all.
  3. You should have just Googled it. First hit finds this.
  4. Look at page 117 in your manual. Looks like the driver info center setting got changed. Trip/Fuel Menu Items (Uplevel DIC) Press MENU until the Trip/Fuel menu is displayed. Use w / x to scroll through the menu items. Not all items are available on every vehicle. The following is a list of possible menu items: . Digital Speedometer . Trip 1 . Trip 2 . Fuel Range . Instantaneous Fuel Economy . Average Fuel Economy . Average Vehicle Speed . Timer . Navigation Digital Speedometer The digital speedometer, available on some vehicles, shows how fast the vehicle is moving in either kilometers per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph). The speedometer cannot be reset.

  6. My 2014 does this. I have had it four years and has done it since I got it. I am pretty sure it has something to do with the voltage management of the car. I can't verify that but it just seems to happen when the car is transitioning from up and down idle rpm's.
  7. My guess would be no. The entire gauge cluster including the speedometer is computer controlled.I doubt there would be anyway to get it to communicate with your car.
  8. You would just need to buy 17" wheels with the right size tire so you keep the same circumference as what you currently have. They normally call it +1 or +2 depending on if you are jumping one inch or two inches in wheel size.
  9. What year is your car? I am not familiar with the build so does it have a throttle cable or is it drive by wire? If its throttle cable I would look for binding or something sticking. If it was drive by wire I would think it would set a code as the ecm closely monitors all that.
  10. Just getting the remote won't do you any good. There is a whole system in the car that supports that part of it and yours wouldn't have it. You would be better off trying to do something aftermarket.
  11. I don't believe the Mylink will support the sub unless you tap into the rear speakers at the head unit.
  12. Sounds like you bought the wrong LED's. You bought a LED for a single filament socket and you needed a LED for a dual filament socket. At least that would be my best guess. The faint glow from the backup lights sounds like possibly a bad ground.
  13. Is it a manual or automatic. I am not sure on the 2017 but on the 2014 Spark with auto trans there is a steel plate that seals the hole on the firewall where the clutch would go through. I drilled a hole in this plate, installed a rubber grommet and run my wiring through there for my powered subwoofer.
  14. My 2014 does the same thing as it has the same CVT in it. Its something you get used too. The shudder is the steel belt in the trans slightly slipping. As Bobby mentioned you will learn how to keep it from doing it along with the RPM increase. Just the quirkiness of the trans. No, its not in the manual. Comes from experience with the car, spending time on this forum, and lots of reading.
  15. I would think the cost would be out of this world. Likely the wiring wouldn't be there so you would need the harness, the power regulators, different door panels and the switches. The body control module would either need programmed or replaced and possibly the main ecm pcm since it handles the electrical bus.
