    The system is triggered and will not run. Try locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key. DO you have the key fob for it?Usually the door open button will stop the flashing. Are you using the correct key to start it and not a dublicate key? If all else fails and the ignitiopn key is correct, You will have to put the key in the ignition and turn forward till the dash lights come on ( Do not start ) and leave the key in the on position for 15min. After 15min turn key off and try to start car. Sometimes this procedure may take at least 2 tries

    Does the battery usually die or partially drain when doing this? Because my dash is reading battery voltage low..

    There will be a drain on the batrtery and if the voltage gets too low the reset will bw aborted. If you have a charger I would recommend to install it an redo the reset procedure if voltage gets too low.

    I ended up having to have the car towed and the next day it started right up. I was told that the battery was bad so I bought a new one and I drove it to work the next morning but when I got off work the exact same thing happened with it not starting. What is could possibly be causing this issue?

I'd get a 12vdc test light if you don't have one already & start from plug, and keep probing back from there. It may be as simple as a bad connection under truck where joined into harness.

SOURCE: headlights flicker all the time

Hi, my name is ricky and im 24 yrs old and from Bronx, N.Y . I bought my 03 impala in 04 and i had the same problem in 2007 in which that clicking noise happens. The headlights flicker, and even the gauges inside the car would flicker at times. It has nothing to do with fuses or a relay, please dont spend money on that b.s. like i did..lol I will try my best to explain what i did so that you can save some money and time. READ EVERYTHING AND USE ADVICE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
1st of all - I went to a junk yard/auto salvage yard to find a USED part that i needed. Often there are good parts from cars that have been totalled.
2nd- What i asked for was a Body Control Module. This controls most of the electric issues you are having and costed me about 50 dollars compared to a new one that was over $200 and reached up to $500.
3rd- I went head first under the steering column and found where the BCM was located. Poke around to find it cause it is def. there, hidden well. It doesnt take special skill to remove it or find it.
4th-Replace the BCM, but be advised that after you do this, your car might not crank over.My car did crank over because i installed a automatic starter previously so i could have started it with the remote start.
5th- you MUST take the car to a chevy shop so they can Program your car to the body control module this costed me about $250.
All together this information has to help you in someway.
If you have further questions or would like to make a comment, then e-mail me at " gyalflexfameh@gmail.com "
I hope this helps...im not saying it is a 100 percent guarantee for you, but i had this same problem recently and this was the answer to my problem. By the way, never buy a american car again or a GM product for that matter...Kudos

SOURCE: My 2003 Hyundai Sonata Door locks will not lock using

I have exactly the same problem. Keyfob will unlock the doors, but will only arm the alarm once the doors have been locked manually. Central locking button on driver side door no longer works, but I hear the clicking sound you're referring to.
I took it to a mechanic, and he seemed pretty sure it was a bad master window / door lock switch. The price he quoted to replace it was $255 plus tax, and I could never bite the bullet and pay for the work, so I've just been living with the problem.
Have you solved your situation yet?

Hi..I was told that on a 2001 Cadillac Seville SLS that the fuse for the taillights was in the rear junction box. Is that located under the rear seat? Thanks.


You were told correctly; it is located under the rear seat, driver side. The bottom seat cushion will have to be removed to access the block.
