Take your car to Kragen or a parts store like it and have the system tested for codes, also ask them to test your charging system for low voltage, all this is free.

Need to turn the caution lights off on the dashboard


Well ,that's because there is a problem with the system an there are What are call DTC'S -diagnostic trouble codes stored in the modules , computers ! You need to take to a repair facility that has a professional grade scan tool that can read codes in the body control module !
SERVICE VEHICLE SOON
The IPC illuminates the SERVICE VEHICLE SOON in the following conditions:
?€¢
The BCM detects certain malfunctions in the lighting system. The IPC receives a class 2 message requesting illumination from the BCM.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communication with the BCM.


This year vehicle as with all newer vehicles have several control modules that control the engine , air bags , antilock brakes , anti-theft system ,Heating an air conditioning ,the instrument cluster an some others ! These modules are all connected on a class 2 serial data communication network so the modules can share information ! Your best bet is to take it to GM dealership or a ASE certified repair shop before you guess an just replace parts , that will cost you more in the long run !

2002 pontiac grand am has 2 service engine soon lights the one on the right comes on and goes out periodiclly


Usually one is a service vehicle soon and the other service engine soon. They are different. The service vehicle soon is telling you the body has an electrical issue and the service engine is telling you you have a powertrain issue. If you get the codes pulled from the engine at auto zone or another big box part store for free and post the codes we can help. This we do first. Then we can worry about the service vehicle soon.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

2002grand am daytime running lights


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.
