Is your battery charged up? Check your battery connections. If it is the original battery, it is possible that it could have failed by now.

Good luck.

1998 Bonneville started then had total loss of all electrical power completely


I'd check the (-) battery cable. Could be corroded where is is attached to the frame or the engine. Take it off and clean it up. Also do the battery connections and check that all the wires to the battery connectors are solid and not corroded. Sometimes near the battery, the corrosion will be under the insulation. I had a '98 GrandPrix that had lots of these kinds of issues.

Tip

I have a 1995 F350 crew cab with keyless entry and the dome lights controlled by...


There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dr...no dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...


this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

Keyless entry blinks dome light and does nothing else


The remote is fine - your problem is the lock actuators in the doors. They're a bit of a pain to replace - so, you may want to have a professional do it.

Keyless entry and dome light


GM used a ground buss under the carpet near the drivers door sill. It gets wet and corrodes causing electrical problems. You can clean it up with steel wool after disconnecting the negative battery terminal. I can't remember if it's near fuse pannel or under the drivers seat on Chevy trucks.

2003 Mercury Sable, Driver's side remote keyless entry keypad not functioning


Doubt its a fuse. Most likely the key pad has failed and needs to be replaced. On the bright side this is a good problem to have and you have a very reliable car.

'97 Honda Civic dome lights and keyless entry problem


The signal from all the door switches is fed to the factory radio. From the radio, the signal goes to the dome light. When the radio is removed, the dome light does not work since the circuit is "cut".
Fortunately, there is a very simple workaround this problem. If the car does NOT have a factory alarm/ keyless entry, all you have to do is tie two wires together.
There are two green plugs. Get to the one that is plugged into the radio (if you have both green plugs going into the radio, then you DO have a keyless entry system).
Tie together the Green/Black (at the corner of the plug) and the Green/Red (3rd pin, opposite corner, same row).
Before tying the wires together, test both wires. With the radio plugged in, both wires should get a ground when a door is open and nothing when the doors are all closed. Once you have determined that they are in fact, the correct wires, unplug the green plug from the radio. If the dome light still works, you do not have to worry about it. If it doesn't, temporarily jump with a wire both pins at the plug. If the dome light functions correctly, then you can permanently jump the wires together. The preferred way to do this is to strip some insulation on the wires, solder a jumper wire and insulate with electrical tape.
