2005 Chevy Equinox 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 43,000 miles
Hello, I bought a used 2005 Chevy Equinox and I love it except for two problems. One, periodically when I start the car - it will start fine - but the Service Vehicle Soon light comes on. It stays on until I turn the Equinox off and then back on. I took it in to the dealership and they said it needed a new battery. They replaced the battery, though it had a new battery put in one month prior when it arrived on the lot. The light still comes on periodically. I don't know what to do!
Second, and even more annoying, is a dinging noise that I get from the front passenger speaker. The door adjar sound, turn signals, and other " warning" noises all come from my speakers in the 05 model of the Equinox. This dinging noise sounds like the reminder that my key is in the ignition noise, however it comes on when I am driving down the road or it will come on before I even unlock the doors (I can hear it through the windows and the car is off!) It is random as to when it comes on and goes off, sometimes it pauses or gets softer, but it still dings. Any ideas?
