    Does the charging system put out 14v or more? Have you checked the amperage output from the alternator? The battery light is triggered by the alternator when voltage is low. If all voltage and amperage is within spec you may have a defective diode internal to the alternator

Pull and reinsert the alternator plug. Bad connection. After that check the wire from it to the PCM, 5 ohms or less is good. Open?, repair the wire at the alternator plug. Otherwise the PCM is bad in that area. Cut the wire from the PCM and run it to a ground point on the engine. This should get rid of the light.

Is it charging properly should be at least 13.8 to 15.2 volts and amperage should max out at approx the alternators rating with full load.

SOURCE: 2004 Pontiac Vibe remote lock on driver door malfunctioning

notorious done if before, remove the door panel. BE CAREFUL WITH BEAUTY CAPS, CAN BE EASILY BROKEN (PLASTIC) when you remove the door panel go ahead and closed the driver door and activate the door lock button. you will see the bracket is either loose or it off. it looks the a coat hanger when you stretch it out. Reconnect it and lithium grease, test it and its a wrap.

SOURCE: my 2004 pontiac vibe check engine light just came

There are to many things that can cause the check engine light to come on. Best thing to do is to go to Auto Zone and get the Car ecm scanned for the DTC codes which would indicate the issues to why the check engine light is on. It could be as simple as a bad gas cap and needs to be replaced and if that is the case, make sure your get one from the dealer and not a generic gas cap. It could also be a bad O2 sensor and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the old O2 sensor with a new on with common tools and they do have that part for sale. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any more questions you may have.

Hi, i have a 2004 pontiac vibe..overnite the head lights went out but the high beams work?? Checked fuses all look good???


Must be cold weather "eats" headlight dimming relay switch. Trace wires from headlamps to a small relay box. If it's a cold weather problem. I'd carefully try a hair dryer on it. See if it helps. If not, It needs to be changed. But it could also be a ground to the frame problem. Possible but not likely the wire from the Steering column dimming switch to the relay is a contact or wire break, or the switch itself. The dimming relay switch is a "flip flop" switch with momentary power or signal to the relay to change from low to high and back. If there is a problem in this signal wire or connection you may be able to jumper from the battery positive to the signal input wire momentarily to change from high to low.
