    I found another soultion on the internet. The computer needs to be reset. This can be done by turning your ignition to the on position, pushing the reset button (a small push button) located below the steering wheel for about 30 sec. until the doors lock and unlock three times. This will reset your car's computer system.

    I have the same problem, but fishgee's solution of pushing the unlock button on my keyfob did the trick. Thanks!

Solution: The remote key entry system is waiting for you to push the "Unlock" button on your keyfob to sync up the car's receiver and the keyfob's transmitter. Just push the keyfob button and the lights will stop blinking.

The blinker goes on but does not flash! What should we look for?


Did you check your turning signal lights are on (and not blinking)? It is normally a sign that one of your turning signal lights is burnt out. But if both are lite and not blinking then it is a blinker relay.

Sounds like the blinkers are blinking but they're not. Traction control and abs lights are on. (spent over $1200 on 3 visits to solve this one) Security light flashes and car won't start for 10 minutes....


BLINKER PROBLEM IS THE MULTI FUNCTION SWITCH FAULTY.WHICH IS THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH DIMMER SWITCH AND WIPER SWITCH AND ALSO HEAD LIGHT SWITCH.YOU HAVE REMOVE STEERING COLUMN COVER BEFORE YOU CAN REMOVE THE MULTI FUNCTION SWITCH.TURN OFF RADIO DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY WAIT 15 MINUTES SO THE AIR BAG IN STEERING WHEEL WILL DISCHARGE. SECURITY LIGHT PROBLEM IS IN THE CAR KEYS WORN WHERE THE BCM AND PCM CANT RECOGNIZE THEM OR THE IGNITION SWITCH AND BCM IS FAULTY.THIS IS A DEALERSHIP FIX THEY HAVE TO REPROGRAM THE KEYS OR IGNITION SWITCH AND THE BCM.ALSO THE ABS AND TRAC LIGHT ON.CHECK ABS FUSE OR RELAY IF BOTH GOOD.DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX THEY HAVE SPECIAL SCANNER TO CHECK THE ABS AND TRAC SYSTEM. FOR SPEAKERS EITHER THEY HAVE POOR WIRES CONNECTION

Parking lights are blinking and right blinker is blinking


Hi there.
Your main problem is that you have a bad earth on one of your lights .
Dose the side lights still blink with the left hand blinker flashing and dose the Tail lights also blink when the parking lights flash(if so you have a bad earth on 1 of the lights either rear or f/parking lights)
If you cannot find it call into the local elect autos and they can fix it in 15 minutes max.
Other wise let me know and i will work it through with you

Blinker blinks fast, replaced bulb, it burned out too


Most cars have separate flashers for each side now, and in fact, if it still blinks, even though faster than normal, there's probably a short circuit somewhere on the light wire where it's exposed and making contact with the frame of your car or some other metal part, which then causes the bulb to burn out.

Saturn 2002 VUE Turn Signal not working properly.


You need to check your left side turn/park lamp bulbs for correct part # & installation.If that checks out you deffinetely have a ground problem.When you have other lights blinking with you turn signals you have either a bulb incorrect or a bad/poor ground.If bulbs check out check your forward lamp harness ground.Hope this helps
