2003 pontiac vibe interior lights on and off

Seems to be related with brake pedal activation. the car has to be in drive or reverse, moving, then as soon as you hit the brakes the interior lights come on shortly and go off after the pedal is released, come back on when pedal is depressed again.

SOURCE: Brake & ABS Warning LIght

There is a known failure of the ABS system control board which typically causes this problem. THere are companies out there that will rebuild your current board (if it's rebuildable). Do a search on ABS repair in Moscow, Iowa.

They will rebuild the module for $150.00 and warrant the repair for 5 years (as opposed to up to a $1000 form GM, and no guarantee as to how ling it will last.).

I did this to my '01 Tahoe and am real happy with it. The company offers diagnosis tests to help you determine if the problem is your ABS module.

Reply back what you find.

SOURCE: Emergency brake stuck, pedal release broken

What happens is the brake cables rust inside the cable sheath and then they won't slide easily. There's no good fix for this other than replacement. It's not easy to even find where they are stuck.It might be possible to find the end of the cables at the back wheels and pull the cables back---to release the tension

SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

2003 GRand Prix, the 3rd brake light works , replaced bulbs and fuse under brake pedal, brake lights still don't work, any ideas?


The button is stuck in? Which button? If it is the flasher button then I would think that is why the brake lights and the flashers don't work. If it is the button behind the brake pedal that is stuck in it should keep the brake lights on and that would stop the flashers from working. I need more clarification on which button you are talking about being stuck.

2006 pontiac vibe brake light


All the lights stopping at the same time is not likely a fuse, it would be the brake light switch, the brake light switch is over the brake pedal near top of brake pedal arm under the dash. To test take a 12 volt test light ($5.00 at any auto parts store) and see if both side of the switch light the test light when the brake pedal is pushed, one side is hot with 12 volts without pushing the brake pedal down. The fuse location is in the owners manual but I am 99% sure that isn't the problem.

Adjusting the parking brake on 03 pontiac vibe


If you look under the van on the driver side (usually) you'll see where the two cables from the rear inter-connect with the main cord to the front. Here, you should find an adjustable bolt that you can tighten. If it is not here, it may need to be tightened from there rear tires.

If you have drum brakes in the rear, these are most likely "self-adjusting" brakes, which may interact with the emergency brake. Everytime you back up, and apply the brakes, you are activating the self adjuster (you would have seen this located at the bottom of the brake system between the two brake pads. This is the self adjuster. Try going in reverse at about 5 miles per hour, and hitting the brakes firmly (not slamming on them). Drive forward again, and firmly press the brakes. Go in reverse again, and apply brakes firmly again; (do this about 4 or 5 times to get the rear brakes adjusted). Try the emergency brake again and if still not tighter, purchase or look in your repair manual as to how to adjust the emergency brake.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Front brakes are sticking on and off on 2005 vibe,when the brakes stick brake pedal becomes hard??both sides start to heat up,calipers seizing?master cylinder problem?or????? I had the same problem with...


Vibes have had a number of problems, so this could be one of them. These brake systems are ultra-sensitive to contaminated brake fluid - make absolutely sure they completely flushed the system and replaced the brake fluid when they replaced the master cylinder.

Cruise control will not engage


Hi, May be worth checking the switch at the brake pedal could just be that its sticking slightly, if you try the cruise control out again just flick foot under brake pedal and lift it up to make sure not holding any pressure on switch.
