Which lights? If all of them a few things can be going on.

These cars have issues when a wrong computer is installed. All lights will light up.


The next or the most common problem is the instrument clusters fail. This is the cheaper of the two, and very simple to do. Tons of youtube videos for how to on these.

Bad sensor in one wheel, they are part of the wheel bearing. Could also be a bad abs computer module, either way, not cheap.

I believe there are two ways one is bye stepping on the gas pedal three times when not running and the other is through the radio buttons on the radio buttons you push until it says oil life reset or something oil on radio.

you caused a default in the computer, remove the positive cable for 10 mins to reset the computer, this will solve your problem, make sure you do not have the keys in the car when doing this.

SOURCE: Oil light stays on

You need to put the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor three times within five second to reset the oil life light.Some g.m.'s have a reset buttom in the fuse panel that needs to be pushed first and some don't.Check the owners manual under change oil for your specific year car.

It could be many things the best thing to do is have someone run a diagnostic check and identify the the the error code.
This will tell you exactly what the problem is.
It could be things like a bad O2 sensor or something as simple as a loose gas cap.

Many of the major auto parts stores perform this service at no cost.

The EPS light has come on my dashboard and the steering has become very heavy. what does this mean


The electronic power steering (EPS) Warning Light is located on the instrument panel. This light illuminates when the EPS is malfunctioning. When this light is lit, your steering may be a little heavier, and you should schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Tip The EPS Warning Light briefly illuminates when the car is first turned on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit for an extended period.

Driving along in my '88 Volvo 740 - all warning lights go on!


My first thoughts are with the battery cables, or the alternator. You probably had the heater, wiper and maybe the lights on? That's a big load on the electrical system. Have the battery and charging system checked out! It's common on this model for the alternator brushes to wear out and the good thing is that they can be replaced separately of the alternator.

Warning lights stay on


Hi,

Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
