SOURCE: 12v accessory plug in

the first step is to check the fuse it should be labeled as CIG or AUX
if fuse is not open (blown) check for corrosion and power at ether end of the terminal (where the fuse goes in) using a 12V test light. If it does not light then the problem is between the fuse panel and battery, but if it lights check the power side of plug in (the sides are the ground and the circle in the bottom is the positive) with the test light. If there is no light that means a disconnected or cut wire on the positive side, but if it does light then there is a cut or disconnected wire on the negative side ether one may need to be further investigated and repaired.
also remove panel and check to see if the wires have been unplugged from the end of the plug in

SOURCE: speedometer quits or goes wonky

All of those things might be related to one anther, then again they may not. ALL of those things are controlled by the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) module. The IPC turns the brake and ABS lights on or off depending on data that it receives from the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
The IPC displays the vehicle speed as determined by the IPC. The IPC calculates the mileage based on the class 2 vehicle speed message from the PCM. The IPC calculates vehicle speed based on the class 2 wheel speed message from the EBCM if a loss of communication or malfunction occurs with the PCM. The speedometer defaults to 0 km/h (0 mph) if the IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with both the PCM and the EBCM.

To make all of this as simple as possible, you need to scan ALL of your modules for fault codes to help in eliminating possible causes for the problems you are experiencing.

Please note that MOST generic OBD scan tools CANNOT access all of the data information that will be required to properly diagnose this problem.

Also note that when really erratic or as you say, "wonky" things are happening, the VERY FIRST thing you should check is your BATTERY and CHARGING SYSTEM. I have seen many things like this happen because a battery has a shorted cell or an alternator has bad diodes, or both!

I had a Cadillac just last week that another shop had put a rack and pinion unit into it at a cost to the customer of $800 because his variable-assist steering was doing goofy things and was setting fault codes. The customer brought it to me when the problem continued and the other shop refered him to me. The techs at the other shop said they "ignored" the "Low Voltage At Module" codes because they and the customer allready knew that the battery was bad??? To which, I said WHAT!!!???
I fixed the steering by replacing the battery.

Why does 2000 impala turn signals stop working?

I am told it is a relay in emergency flasher circuit.

The quick fix is to activate emergency flashers just for a few cylcles , a minute or two after car has been running. The directionals will work fine for the duration of that ride.

I have heard of peolple remvoving trim to get at switch, cleaning contacts and components of switch, but symptom eventually re-appeared. Cycling through e-flashers a few times works every time for me. - Rick Rock

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?

The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

Turning signals not working all the time

Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

Orange check engine light fpr 2005 toyota corolla

An orange check engine light means there is an electronic failure in the engine control system. It could be anything from a loose fuel cap, to a bad sensor on the engine. It is not an emergency, but you should get it checked out. A red engine light is an emergency and requires you to immediately stop the car. Yellow is a warning.

2004 wrangler blinker problem

What other problem did you have before the signals quit? Something that stopped all functions from the signals has to be either a feed or ground IF the flasher is good. Signals feed. Hot wire from the flasher 1 and it should blink underload, but not with a test light or DVM. In other words using a test light the flasher wire should be powered steady. All the rest of the switch is switchable. You should also get a hot wire when the brake pedal is pushed. Check for power at the brake switch,key off.
