Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

2 Answers

2002 Pontiac Sunfire

There is a yellow light that is staying lit on my dash board. There are the letters 'TCL' on the light. I bought the car used and there was no manual with it so I don't even know what the letters mean, OR, if there is something important that needs to be fixed. I would appreciate some expert advice as I know nothing about fixing cars.

Regards,
Bonnie

    hi bonnie , i don't know if you have like local part store franchises up there , but you need to have the car scanned for diagnostic trouble codes , for free hopefully . we have stores here like autozone who do that for customers in the hopes of selling parts . that will be a good place to start .post any new information . johnny .

There should also be a Traction Control button next to the sterring wheel on the left. On our 2002 Sunfire the light turns on if you disable traction control. Maybe you need to turn it back on?

Bonnie, this is the traction control light, there is many reasons why this could be on. The easiest way to turn it off is to pull the emergency brake, this would usually disengage the traction control. This is not, however, a fix to your problem as to why it is on.

91 honda ex, passenger front seat belt is not working and the light in the dash board keeps lit, I have check the fuses for it, and all the connection to the belt and it seems all intact...any advise?


Your 1991 model Accord has automatic front retracting shoulder belts and, more than likely, the power retractor motor has gone bad on the passenger side front. If the shoulder seat belt is not in the retracted position, up close against the seat, when the car is running, the seat belt light will stay lit on your dash. Have the seat belt motor inspected and replaced if necessary.

Orange engine symbol on dash stays lit, what does this suggest. nissan micra


Your car is most likely obd2 compliant (in the US everycar built after 1996 is) this means your check engine light could be on for a whole list of reasons, You will need an obd2 scanner to plug into the diagnostics connector to read the codes. Many times car parts places will let you use theres, hoping to sell you parts when you know what needs to be fixed. If the use of free one is not available you can probably buy one off of ebay for not too much. Use the code scanner, write down the codes and google them and/or buy a haynes manual that will explain how to do all these things.
