1. First time you can try this simple procedure:
1.1. Ensure ignition switched OFF.
1.2. Wait for at least 3 minutes.

1.3. Disconnect battery earth lead for at least 10 minutes.
1.4. Reconnect battery earth lead.
NOTE: Disconnecting battery may erase memory from electronic units (e.g. radio, clock).
NOTE: Disconnecting battery earth lead may cause driveability problems until the engine management system relearns basic values!
This is applied in order to Engine Control Module (ECM) resetting without having any diagnostic equipment.

2. If the problem still remains, then you need to access the ECM using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector (DLC) of the vehicle, in order to pull out all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) memored. Then you will be full informed about bad components, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the check engine light will turns OFF and engine runnings fine.

Car sat in parking lot for 3 days, with a lot of rain. Upon start up Check Engine & VSC began to flash. Car ran normally for 2 miles. Pulled over shut down car, waited 10 seconds re-started engine...


It likely had water on the ignition system. The check engine light will flash for misfire. The VSC light is on just because the check engine light is on. You likely have it dried out now and its fine. You just need to clear the codes. Autozone will do this for free.

codem p 0203 refers to injector 3---circuit malfunction===causes wiring--injector--ECM
chweck for harness connection , bad wire for no 3 injector or corroded pins for no 3 injector in the connection

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Issue with dash lights dimming while driving,


If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Check engine light on a 1996 chevy lumina


Hi there .... the best thing to do right now is to take it somewhere like autozone and get the car scanned for codes. Once you have the codes you can post them here and we can help you with it. Without codes it is a little difficult to diagnose.
