A great safety feature of the Chevrolet Monte Carlo is the warning light system that displays a light whenever a malfunction occurs with your vehicle. Most of the time the warning light resets when the problem is addressed, but occasionally the lights stay on even after the problem is fixed. Resetting a warning light on a Monte Carlo is even easier with the added Display Indicator Console (DIC), which allows you to reset the lights by simply pressing a button. These instructions apply only to the 2007 Monte Carlo.
