Having problems with your 2009 Chevrolet Equinox ?

Transport Mode On message along with flashing battery light on.

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

This is the mode that vehicles are shipped in so that the batteries dont die....It is easy to correct...All you need to do is turn the key to the on position and keep holding it as forward as possible for over 15 seconds...

A message will come up "Transport Mode Off". The battery light will go off and your clock will operate properly.

Thats the trick and works on 2010 Camaro, Equinox, Traverse, Lacross and other vehicles.


I'll try this one on my Orlando chevrolet thanks for the tip

After jumpstarting a dead battery on my 2003 Land Rover Discovery, I noticed that the "Sport Mode" and "Manual Mode" lights were flashing simultaneously, and that the car was sluggish in driving (apparently in Manual mode). Due to the circumstances, replacing the battery on the spot wasn't possible, so I'm planning to do that next--but would a drained battery with corroded cables cause the engine to kick into Manual mode? Is it likely that a new battery will fix the problem? I'd love any sugge

When I turn on my Kurzweil PC2X, the LCD screen shows the message 'Scanner is dead!' followed by 'battery voltage low (0.0 volts).' The lights on the keyboard flash at me and the keyboard won't make any sound. I have changed the battery but I still get the same messages.

Hi I own a 1996 VW Transporter 1.9td. The alternator has recently been replaced. The problem is that when it is started the battery light stays on and the oil warning light flashes.
