Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

2002grand am daytime running lights

Stated getting the service vehicle soon list, which according to my manual means something is wrong with the daytime running lights or turn signals. Turn signals are fine, daytime running lights are not working and last night noticed headlights are not working even when turning them on manually. What could cause this? And if it's the relay how do I replace it?

    My headlights also just went out, first the one then later that night the other one too...they wont go on manually but the high beams work...It is not the fuse or the bulbs, I have no clue and dont want to spend a fortune to fix it!!

    my headlights work fine in the day as DRLs but at night they don't turn on, both are out, even when switched on manuallly, the brights dont work either. the fog lights work and the parking lights work. i hit a bump and the headlights came on the first night it happened which makes me think its a relay, but i can't find anywhere in the manuel that says where that relay is.

99 - 04 grand am.

I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.

The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.

It says to service engine soon what does this mean


Why my Check Engine/Service/Check Engines Soon light comes on?
The engine computer or PCM/ECM
All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle powertrain (the engine and transmission). The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it's not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That's why today's cars have much more electronics than in early days - there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part. and u can drive the car.

Service vehicle soon light


Do all your exterior lights work. Including the daytime running lights. This is the service vehicle soon light and not the service engine soon light? Does the service engine light come on when you turn the key on? The service vehicle light will also stay on if the service engine light is burnt out.

Daytime Running lights wont come on on my 2000 Grand Am SE.


Do your high beam headlights work? If you have a burnt high beam light the daytime running lights won't work and then the service vehicle soon light comes on.
