There is a power box located in the trunk for onstar. Other than possible bad wiring, I'd check the box and all connections to it.

My onstar has stopped working on my 2012 equinox

Contact on star and make sure a count is still active. If so have them re authorize the unit. If it still does not work it will need to go to a dealership for repair.

The onstar in my 2012 serria 1500 is not working ,I have checked the fuse it is good is the power box my next step if so where is it located on my truck

OnStar is tied into the radio and the bcm, if it is not working it could be very expensive to fix. Since the system uses satellite technology, it could be a bad antenna, bad transmitter etc.

no power, means, what, cig lighter plug dead,?
try something else there, like a cell charger, still dead.?
if it is truely dead, the fuse is blown.
does head lights work, and engine run?
ok fuses that bad are bad, blown. (blown elements)
ok fuse that look GOOD, can in fact be bad, (tiny cracks.)
we never fail to test good looking fuses or go nuts for sure.
you can test fuse 3 ways.
1: DMM ohms, 0 ohms reading
2: voltmeter shows, 12v, on both sides of fuse, key on.
3: a fuse tester dealy bob at any autostore. (ill pass)
there are other ways, but are way too complex to type.
(ok a battery powered test light , yes, all auto stores sell them.
glow with a good fuse)

Can I use a used Onstar Module to replace one that is not working in a 2005 Cadillac Deville?

You can but the dealer will still have to initialize it to work with your car.

The OnStar module is located under the right rear passenger seat, unhook the connector. Also, fuse #27 in the rear fuse panel is for the OnStar, but the DVD player as well.

My 1984 Buick regal back lights stop working, any suggestions on wht to and where to check?

Hello ojuice44,

If the bulb are good the next place to look is to check the fuses, if your turn signals work the fuse will be good. The fuse for the back-up lights is the same one for the turn signal..

After that there are two areas to check.

First, check for power and ground at the bulb sockets if ground is good and no power go to next step. If no ground repair the ground circuit ( See diagram below).

Second,check for power to the gear selector switch. Check for power with the key on and engine off going into the switch on the dark blue wire (See diagram below) if no power repair that circuit. If there is power there, then with the key on and engine off put the gear selector in reverse and check for power at the light green wire if there is power there the switch is good if no power replace the switch. If you do have power at the light green wire coming out of the switch repair the light green circuit from there to the taillights.


I hope this helps.

Phone or assistance not working, red light next to emergency button red what can I check for?

You must be refering to your mirror or the OnStar system?
The light next to my emergency button is Green.
I suspect that a Red light means your OnStar subscription has expired.
You may have to contact OnStar to renew your subscription and payments.

I have a 2000 cadillac catera my radio, maplight, high beam light, heated seats, and onstar does not work when I start the engine. when I turn it off they work until I open the door. PLEASE HELP

Did you recently have a loss of power to the car? change the battery? if so, you need to reset your system. My husband and I just figured this out this weekend. His sunroof hasn't worked in two years and it turns out you have to reset all the power options in the car. Google 2000 cadillac catera %calibrate ETC% loss of power, you'll find the step by step instructions for recalibrating the car's computer and resetting the power options
