Since the check engine light does not specify what the problem is a scanner is needed to access the engine control computer. You can have it checked at any Chevy dealership and/or local auto repair shop.

1998 chevy lumina will not start.


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
Have you cleaned the battery cables this year ?

1998 Chevy Lumina has check Engine light on and code says egr valve which has been replaced now what


Check engine lights sometimes do not go off right away. To reset the check engine light, disconnect your battery, turn the lights on, on your car ( to drain any power left in the computer systems), reconnect the battery and the light should be off. If it comes back on, the EGR valve was not installed properly.

It's probably the dimmer switch, chevy is bad for them going out or shorting. It should be on the fuse with the dome light. Try working the dimmer back and forth, see if it works then.

Brake lights dont work, the one in the back window does, maybe a ground wire is off? 98 chevy lumina


Make sure both of the bulbs are good first. But the common problem with these body style lumina is the turn signal switch goes open and does not allow power for the lower break lights to work. The 3rd break light does not get power through the turn signal switch. You can by pass the switch and jump the two wires together and make sure they work before replacing the turn switch. There is a big bulk head connector at the bottom of the steering colume. There are lots of wires in there but you are looking for a white wire and an organ wire that are beside each other. I don't have a schmatic at home to give you the pin locations. But they will be on one of the outside connectors. There are 3 sets of wires coming together into this bulk head.
Hope some of that make since?

Many things can cause your issue. The more ifo you can put together for us, the better we can help.
Have the codes scanned (If you dont have the tool Autozone or Pepboys will scan it for free) Also look at the cars history If its been more then 2 or 3years since the last COMPLETE tune-up, it might need it. But the stored engine code/s could be very helpfull. Good luck.

1993 Chevy Lumina stalls from a stop.


My 93 Lumina did the same thing and a simple tune up solved the problem. For whatever reason, the rear middle plug wire goes bad before the others.

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.
