This is a bad PCM. Try to disconnect the security system first and if it still does not start then it is the PCM.

I know this is not your problem, but my low beam stopped working, both bulbs failed, no burn marks or broken element. Just had to tell someone

SOURCE: Low beam headlights don't work

The problem is in the high beam switch assembly which also houses your turn signals and possibly cruise control, and yes, I'm sure. There are some electrical contacts in the assembly which dis-connect the low beams when you put the high beams on. Constant use of the high beam switch will create arcing on the low beam switch which makes the contacts not conduct electricity anymore. The daytime running lights send power to the low beams on a separate circuit. .

The repair is to either replace the assembly, $300 at dealer, $100 or less do it yourself, or take the assembly apart and clean it for free. (2 hours or less)

P.S. If you own a VW, especially around model years 1999 to 2004, there is a rare but devastating problem with engine coolant being literally pumped through all electrical parts of your car.... destroying it. Repair cost = $8,000. It is called coolant migration. Check your VW right now (takes two seconds, literally), and do a two-minute procedure to fix your car to prevent the problem here: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/multi/coolant_migration.htm

SOURCE: my 2006 Baja parking lights won't turn off. I

On the steering column in front of the dash there is a parking light switch which has probably been flipped. I accidently flipped mine when I was wiping down the dashboard.

SOURCE: just want to reset the check engine light.

You would have to use a OBDII scanner to clear the light. There is a connector under the driverside of the dash to connect the scanner to. If a problem exists, the light would just come back on. For the change oil light all you have to do is turn the key on, but don't start engine. Press the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds and that resets that light. Some Hummers have menu controls on the steering wheel to reset the oil light. But as far as a Check Engine Light, you may need to have your vehicle checked out. Local part stores like Autozone could check what trouble codes are in the system to see why the light is on. Don't know if they can clear them for you. Misfires, bad oxygen sensors, lean/rich fuel mixture are just a few examples of what can turn that light on.

Backup Lamps
The TURN SIG fuse in the console fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to park neutral position switch. When the gear selector lever is in the REVERSE position, power is supplied to both of the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G402.

How do i turn of the red imobaliser light. It is not on when key in the ignition only when removed


is lamp in the CLUSTER? (not on ours)
no other lights stuck on (warning?)
are you saying the IMMO lamp glows, key out of car>?
that is a relay stuck. (or bad ignition switch or short there)
what country, this is USA site, so no country and no engine stated.
means all answer are wrong. (guessing)

it has its own theft deterrent ECU. (has power all the time,)
and the Immobilizer to main PCM.
my guess is one of 2 relays bad. (or input key switch bad to relay)
IG1 relay
and ( EFI-EOD) relay. can fail if above is stuck.

What is the cable connected to the ignition that controls the dash board's gadgets


You mean by gadgets, warning lights and gauges? That would be from the ignition switch's run wire, the wire from the on position. This wire sends voltage to the ignition system, and to the dash for the warning lights and gauges-but not directly to the dash-the signal would reach the dash after being routed through the fuse panel to a fuse for the dash gauges and warning lamps. You need to check if that fuse is good.
Recall seeing any wiring diagram? The fuses are labeled either "hot at all times" or "hot in run or start". The fuses labeled hot in run or start are only sent power when the key is on, so power for those fuses are routed through, or turned on by the key being on. Depending on the car and its wiring set up, many will have relays that are turned on by the run wire, and power is then sent from the relay to that circuit's fuse in the fuse panel. This relay may be called the ignition relay. Or your car may have a different relay to send power from the run wire to the fuse panel.
The only way to figure yours out is to see a wiring diagram for it. Then you will see how power is sent from the ignition switch to the dash.
Wiring diagrams are almost always found in repair manuals. Check if your library has a manual for your car. Most libraries have quite a few repair manuals. Or parts stores sell repair manuals too, for about $25. Try to find a Haynes repair manual for your car. The other popular repair manual is from Chilton. My preference is Haynes, just my preference. I been burned by Chilton manuals sooo many times-incomplete wiring diagrams, incorrect information, incomplete information. Haynes are not perfect by any means, you want perfection-spend big bucks for a factory service manual ! In general, Haynes is more complete than Chilton.
OK, enough venting. If you have a test light, check for power at the fuse for the dash (may be labeled "gauges" or "instr pnl", something like that) with the key on. If it has power with key on, wire from the fuse goes to the dash. If that fuse has no power to it with key on, power has been lost between the ignition switch and that fuse-now you definitely need a wiring diagram to find the problem.

The cooling fan does not turn on when my 96 Chrysler Concorde when the engine gets hot...where should I look for the problem?


Somewhere around the flange of the engine cooling radiator is a thermostat that opens and closes a circuit for the fan, but first check the fuse box in the engine compartment and look for the engine fan relay fuse... Check it out first!

All my lights come on except for the headlights. The only way I have headlights is to pull back on the dimmer switch. Could it be the relay or? If it is the relay how do I get to them, I see them behind...


ok, First , By pulling back on the dimmer switch thats the high beams working, have you checked the head light bulbs? before tracking down relays , or fuses, check the bulbs with a meter, at times the burned filament is hard to see, you could have had one out, and the other finally quit working too, so do a bulb check first , if you do need to get to the relays,, you need to disconnect the battery first ( always neg side first if you have air bags then positive side, when hooking it back up, reverse this order) then locate the attaching screws that hold the fuse box in place, and lower it,, allowing you access to the relay

I just purchased a 1996 cavalier. It didn't have an owners manual and i need to know what the abrieviations on the fuse box stand for. I'm trying to find the fuse for the brake lights and rear turn...


Hi, the likely problem is the turn signal switch. The signals and brake lights use different fuses. You can get an owners manual here:
http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/1996-Chevrolet-Cavalier.pdf

A new switch is about $40, and it isn't too hard to replace. Make sure you get one that has the same controls as yours does. To replace the switch, remove the covers from the steering column, disconnect the switch and unscrew it from the column.

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My reverse lights don't work on my 04 F150 do you think the back-up switch is bad or just a fuse? javascript:;


I would check the bulbs, remove them and test with a DC power source ( DC power adapter to 2 wires Pos + Neg )

Fuse #14 has the reverse lamps on it, as well as the Day Time Running Lamps ( DRL ) relay coil, the shift interlock ( would not be able to take the truck out of park, while it was running ), and some other items I am missing at the moment.

If you cannot make the test harness to a DC power outlet, you can block the wheels ( at least 2 - front and rear ) on a level surface, turn the key to the run position ( do not start ) and place the truck in reverse, and check the bulb socket with a meter or test light to check for power.
If it is installed, you can also check the Trailer Tow adapter reverse circuit as well ( this is relay is triggered by the reverse circuit ).

If you do not have power at either ( don't forget to check for corrosion on the trailer tow 7 pin adapter ) this would be the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor on the side of the automatic transmissions.

Have you used an aux backup lamp on the truck's reverse circuit ? ( not the trailer tow 7 pin adapter )
The DTR sensor and reverse circuit does not like 1 AMP additional load on it ( the lights will not burn at full brightness ) and if an additional load has been on them, the DTR sensor at the reverse contacts could be carbon'd up.

Trailer Tow reversing relay ( non serviceable ) and the Trailer tow parking lamp relay are both fed from Fuse #10 ( coil on reversing relay is fed from reverse lamps & coil on parking lamp relay is fed from the parking lamps ).

Trailer Tow battery charge relay is fed from Fuse #106 ( coil is fed by fuse #13, hot in start / run position from key ).

Right Stop / Turn is fed from Fuse #36 ( powered from MFS circuit for truck stop/turn )
Left Stop / Turn is fed from Fuse #42 ( powered from MFS circuit for truck stop/turn )

Reverse light fuse blows when put into reverse


Unfortunately, many possibilities. If you have time, start by removing both reverse lamp sockets from light assembly(and keep from touching any metal), remove bulbs from sockets, CAREFULLY INSPECT sockets and wires. New fuse of correct rating. Turn key on and try again in reverse.
Fuse still blows: Next place to look is transmission reverse electrical switch and wiring as far as you can trace looking for burned/stripped wires near transmission and wires by sockets
Fuse doesn't blow: Turn key off and install one lamp in socket at a time. DO NOT install sockets into fixture at this time. Test. Remove first lamp to check second. If still O.K., each socket back into fixture(one at a time same as before)and test. Most common problems: Sockets contaminated, wires shorting at sockets, bulbs installed incorrectly shorting to ground.

Fuz box


Your vehicle has 3 fuse panels. Instrument fuse panel is located under the dashboard, left of the steering column. Passenger side fuse panel is located behind passenger side kick panel. Main fuse and relay block is in engine compartment, near battery. There does not appear to be a "reverse light" fuse. Do all you other lights work properly(headlights, brake lights, turn signals, running lights, dashboard lights, etc.)? If so then there is a problem in the reverse light circuit, OR the bulbs are burned out. YES, I have seen both burn out at same time. Hope this helps a little
