SOURCE: Service engine code indicates EGR valve.

You could have a restriction in the egr ports. remove the valve. Plug the holes, start engine. 1 hole will be blowing out exhaust, the other will have large vacuum.

Below the steering column is an access panel, or a cover. It is held in place with four Philips screws. One in each corner. Remove it. (Keep track of those screws. They have a special washer made onto them!)

Now you can reach up under the dash more easily, and feel for the dashlight bulb holders. You have to lay on your right side on the floorboard, twist your upper body to the left, and stick your arm, and hand up in there. This will be so much fun, that you'll want to get a second job doing just this! (NOT!)

Since you've never done this before, (If I'm correct), I'll try to explain what you're feeling for.

To explain what a dashlight bulb holder looks like.
Looking at the bulb socket side, it is a round shaped piece of plastic about the size of a nickle.
There is a socket in the middle, and the miniature
lamp bulb pushes down in to install.
Looking at the backside, where your fingers will be touching, it looks like a knob on a gas stove. It has a protrustion in the middle, that is shaped in a rectangle.

The bulb end that inserts into the bulb socket, narrows down to a flat tip. Should be a 194. Looks like this,

The bulb holder has one crude thread on it. To remove it, you turn it one-quarter turn, then take it out. As you face the dash, turn it to the right.
Once you get one out in your hand, you'll see what I meant about the shape, why it was hard to describe, and how crude my explanation probably is.
REPLACE one bulb at a time!

Hope this helps you in some way.

SOURCE: in my 1997 Chevy Lumina 3.1L the CHECK ENGINE SOON light is on

If it was a stock rebuild the original PCM settings should be fine check all the fuses and wiring possibly something was damaged or left loose this stuff happens to the best of the SES light needs to be reset with a scan tool make sure to record all codes stored in the computer as this will aid in diagnosing any problems. the car must be ran thru a drive cycle usually normal driving conditions of say a mix of city and highway driving until the PCM relearns all parameters like o2 sensors emissions sensors ect... this can also be checked with the scan tool in the readiness moniters these monitors will be reset every time the SES light is reset. when pumping the gas pedal 3 time you are just resetting the maintenance light.

Two of my brake lights aren't working, i already repalced the bulbs and it still did not work. i have a 1995 chevy lumina.

Sounds like a faulty brake light switch or a blown fuse. Check the fuse first and then the switch....near the brake pedal. Good luck

Fuse box location for 1997 chevrolet lumina that controls signal switch on steering colum

If its like my 1999 Lumina, its on the end of the dash on passenger side. Open pass. side front door, look at the end of the dash & you should see a little door that says "FUSES" on it. Grab the tab at the bottom of the little door & pull out. And Ta da, there they are!

The brake lights wont work. The brake light over

the break light wire on the lumina runs through the blinker switch or multifunction switch on the colum.. check there as well as at the tail light sockets. on the late 90s gm cars the sockets had a tendancy to rot away... use a test light at the brake light wire in the trunk and have a friend apply the break. if there is power then may have to get new tail lights. or replacement bulbs.

1997 Lumina turn signals don't work passenger brake light doesn't work

check the turn signal relay and the fuse, and for the bake light your bulb might be bad because the fuse for the brake lights works for both. not just one. if the bulb is not bad check the wiring. it's an older car so it may have corroded wires
