Check your battery terminals and if not that you will be looking at a worn wire which is earthing out and causing the immobiliser to short out.

Clicking from dash+headlights lite while parked+code P0741


The problem appears to be in the headlight switch in the multi-function arm on the left side of the steering wheel. There is also a PPL module under the dash - that is what you hear clicking. I'm just starting my research, but it appears to be common. It also looks like the switch is not an easy fix. We'll see what happens....

Alternator and electrical problems ive changed alternator twice,now clicking noise under dash bat. light comes on and dash lights flicker


check all battey connections and system grounds. Check that the battery has 12v and holds properly when load tested. To check charging system, don't disconnect any battery leads...put a volt meter across the battery. when running, you should have at least 12.9v and volts should not drop. (usual reading is generally at or near 13) at idle with all accessories on voltage should be close to that as well. voltage should not exceed 14.Also make sure that drive belt is not slipping.

Headlights won't turn off.


I had the same problem and changed light control module and now it works. It is above the swing down fuse panel under the dash on the driver side. Swing the panel down and you can slide it back a little and it will release. You can get these from a junk year for around $10 or less.
