Question about 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Service light on dash

I recently replaced my stock headlight with HID (High Intensity Discharge) head lights. They are plug and play. The only thing I had to cahnge on the car was the removal of the DRL(Daytime running lights) Relay. That way the DRL will not turn on when the head lights are off and the car is running. I also did an oil change after 10-12k over due. When I replaced the filter, the can filter was not attached to the lid as it was supposed to be. When I started my car up after all was said and done, I light came on my dash. It says service with a wrench. I know my car has two separate lights. One service engine soon and the other service light with the wrench. I attached a OBDII tech scanner, and no codes are thrown. I also ran a live data screen, and nothing is abnormal. The car runs perfect at all speeds and idleing. Any ideas of the problem or solution, or a way to turn off the light? Thanks.

Frong lamps


If you replaced your HID (high intensity discharge) bulb and this did not work, I would then check the fuses, if they are all good, there is a good possibility that the ballast is bad. Some manufacturers won't even sell the bulbs separately, you have to buy the ballast and bulb as a set. They both seem to have high failure rates.

95 chevy blazer has dash lights intensity varying while driving


This is not a voltage problem. The problem is in the headlight/dash dimmer. You have to turn the dimmer switch on the headlight switch to select what intensity you have right? try turning it down just a smidge and if it stays steady then it is most likely a dimmer switch problem. This requires replacement of the headlight/dimmer switch to fix. local auto parts shop should be able to have this in stock.
ps dont forget to rate my solution please. Thanks
