Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

2002 Grand Am Guage lights, fog, rear license, tail lights out

My guage lights, Window Controll Lights, Ac Controll lights, Shifter lights, and fog lights do not work. All waring and overhead lights work and the "Service Vehicle Soon" light is on. I checked all the fuses under hood and on both passenger and driver side doors with a circuit tester but no luck. This happened after I took out the turn signal multifunction switch to clean it so the infamous clicking would go away. I cleaned it by taking out all but one screw and prying it appart about 1/4" on the turn signal arm side and then I sprayed electrical degreaser and then electrical lubricant in and reinstalled. All fuses have been checked with a tester and are good. You tink I caused the BCM to go bad? Where is it located?

    I also replaced the switch with a used one that was known to be working when removed. Still no luck

  • sam_1978 Mar 06, 2009

    Actually, I just took it in to the dealership and they put their scan tool on it and found a blown prarking lamp fuse to be the problem

    yeah, strange

1983 280zx turbo no power to lights for all gauges to illuminate in dark


Check fuses with a guage, not by sight. Get an 83 wiring diagram & start tracing. Check fusible links, switches & connectors first.

Not sure about the 83ZX but many (most?) cars have the tail lights on the same circuit as the dash lights so you can tell when your tail lights are out. Check the tail light fuse.

It's a fuse that is out. I think it is the one for the rear defroster or rear wiper. I did that once. I needed a fuse so I pulled it out and I had headlights but no guage lights. But when I had the key on acc the guages lit up.

check if you are getting any power to your dimmer switch, i had all gauge lights out and checked the dimmer switch- no power, replaced it w/ a junkyard unit and it works perfect now

02 Grand Am SE Instrument lights, fog lights don't work


There is a 10amp fuse located in the fuse box under the R/S instrument panel end cap cover.
Open the passenger door, remove the cover, if I remember correctly it is held in place with clips.
The Illumination fuse probobly blew when you were working on the multifunction switch, it happens.
Good luck, let me know if there is any thing further.

02 Grand Am Gt Instrument lights dont work


this is caused by your dash light "dimmer" either going bad, or coming un-plugged due to recent work (like stereo or alarm installation usually).. if it is unplugged - plug it in, if it is plugged in, order one from the dealer or just get one from a wrecking yard. If you have had a new stereo installed right before this happened, make sure to have them also check their wiring.

Gages and warning lights jump and flash


Check the wire harness plugs in the back of the guage package... They might be loose and making and breaking connection when you hit a bump... Two upper, two lower screws normally on imports and domestics on the guage cluster...

No sidelights working


The 15 amp TAIL fuse is for the sidemarkers, the license plate, etc. There is a taillamp relay.
Both of these circuits are powered by the 50 amp AM1 fuse.

The fog lights are powered by the 15 amp FR FOG fuse.

The inst panel is powered by 3 fuses: 7.5 amp GAUGE, 15 amp DOME and 7.5 ECU-B.

Please check all of these, and if they are all good, please get back to me for more info.
Hope this helps.
