Does the ac unit fans come on? Also if it does come on is it only on bottom floor vents, or defroster only.

How do I get the brake light in dash to go out after brakes have been repaired

Disconnect the battery negative cable for a few minutes then re-connect it. That will reset the computer.
Hope this helps.

However, resetting the computer will require about 40 starts for the computer to re-learn the car.

How do you make the computer relearn the system?

To reset the computer, disconnect the negative battery cable and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Most all codes will clear. Connecting the battery cable again and the computer will begin re-learning the system automatically. I've heard that some hard-set codes may stay in the system and need cleared using a code scanner but, I've not actually come across this before as disconnecting the battery cable has always worked for me.

89 vette, 48k, car starts fine, runs about a minute or 2, then shuts down, then wont restart, probably vats, after a few minutes, starts right up only to do the same thing.

Sounds like ignition control module (small plastic piece in bottom of distributor). When it gets warm it's shorting out. Easy fix, disconnect battery, pull cap & rotor - gin module is 2 screws in bottom of distributor and 4 wires - replace wires in exact order and coat bottom of middle with dielectric grease, replace rotor, cap & connect battery NEGATIVE CABLE LAST!

How do i reset the service light for the BMW 320i 2006 model. The key is a slot in type. To start, there is a start and stop button.

If you had work done on the car, they should have disconnected the battery. This "re-sets" the on-board computer to adjust to the new changes.

If you are referring to the "check engine" light as the "service light", here's what you can try:
disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait for 15 minutes, then re-connect. Hopefully that re-sets your on-board computer.

Some cars require a few more starts before the computer resets, so maybe you just haven't started it enough times since it was serviced.

Otherwise, I don't have enough info for a complete answer.

The easiest way to do this is take the negative battery terminal and leave it off for a few hours. Or if you have an autozone close they can reset it for you for free.

Wheres my voltage regulator. 89 dakota 2.5lt

On ALL gasoline models there is no separate voltage regulator. The regulator circuitry is contained in the engine controller. If this circuitry is found faulty, the entire engine controller computer must be replaced as a unit.

(see Figure 1)

This procedure covers diesel models only.


Fig. 1: Pull on the connector body, not the wiring when removing the electronic voltage regulator
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Release the spring clips and pull off the regulator wiring plug.
  3. See if your bolts are rusty or hard to remove, if so use lubricant and allow to sit for a few minutes before removing.
  4. Remove the regulator.
To install:
  1. Install the regulator and secure using the hold-down bolts.
  2. Hook the spring clips to the wiring plug. Make sure the clips are fully engaged.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helped. (remember comment and rated).
