Can I reprogram my keyless remote from my 1995 eldorado to my 1996 cadillac eldorado


AS programs can be altered I would have it checked out at a dealer service centre as they will need the keys and the vehicle to see if it can be done

I recieved message ( RFA1 Battary low ) what does that mean


RFA means radio frequency actuation. This usually indicates one of your key fob batteries are getting weak. They work off RFA, by remotely operating your door locks thru radio signals. Its best to change the batteries in both remotes at the same time. They shouldn't, but not always need reprogramming. After replacing the battery, simply press the lock and unlock buttons together to re-synchronize the key fobs.

Which fuse box has blower motor fuse on 2001 chev impala


There is a blower motor resistor located up under the passenger side dash. I believe there is actually 3 fuses that can cause problems with the blower....relays/fuses should be located in the engine compartment fuse block. They are High Blower fuse-HVAC fuse-Radio/HVAC/RFA/Cluster/etc...fuse. Hope this helps.

The A/C fan in my 04 Grand Prix will NOT shut off.


CLICK HERE for a schematic of your blower.

Your blower is not shutting off - so your BMCP (Blower Motor Control Processor) has malfunctioned... or the HVAC Control Module has failed.

Both provide power to the blower motor.

To check which one has failed - pull the HVAC control fuse RADIO/HVAC/RFA/CLSTR/ALDL (15Amp) and see if the fan shuts off - if not - try the BMCP fuse HI/BLWR (30Amp) - Both are listed listed at the top of the schematic.

First off you need to know how these thing's work ,computer controlled .

Trunk Release Function
When the PZM receives a serial data message for the activation of the trunk release solenoid from the instrument cluster or from the RFA, the PZM energizes the trunk release relay under the following conditions:
• The transmission is in PARK
• The valet lockout switch is not activated.

Components
This vehicle has electronic components which the service technician controls in order to provide valuable self-diagnostic information. These components are part of an electrical network that controls various engine subsystems and various body subsystems. A description of each of these subsystems is in the appropriate subsection of this service manual. These major components that compromise the computer system monitor the system sensors and the system switches. These components are the following:
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
• The instrument cluster
• The air controller module (ACM)
• The sensing and diagnostic module (SDM)
• The electronic brake and traction control module (EBTCM)
• The continuously variable road sensing suspension module (CVRSS)
• The body control module (PZM)
• The integrated radio controller (IRC)
• The remote function actuator (RFA)
• The climate control panel (CCP)
• The cellular telephone (PHN)
System Functions
The body control module (PZM) performs the following functions:
• HVAC afterblow control
• Battery guard
• Door lock and unlock
• Fuel level
• Retained accessory power (RAP)
• Theft deterrent
• Exterior lighting control
• Interior lighting control
• Trunk release
• Time of day for the radio display
• Rear defogger
• Fuel door release
• Vehicle personalization
For more information about these functions refer to the appropriate sections.

Your probably have a lose connection somewhere , ground for the BCM or instrument cluster . Behind the dash or instrument cluster ! or other places . G-400 ,G205

The instrument cluster supplies the turn on signal for the alternator

DTC B1910 Generator L-Terminal Open Circuit
DTC B1911 Generator L-Terminal Problem
DTC B1981 Battery Voltage Low
The generator provides the voltage to operate the vehicle's electrical system and to charge the battery through CKT 1 (RED). When the ignition switch is placed in RUN, narrow width pulses on CKT 23 (GRY) are supplied by the powertrain control module (PCM) to the rotor, creating a weak magnetic field. When the engine is started, the regulator senses the generator rotation by detecting AC voltage at the stator through an internal wire. Once the engine is running, the regulator varies the field current by controlling the pulse width. This regulates the generator output voltage for proper battery charging and electrical system operation.
The PCM turns on the VOLT indicator via Class 2 serial data line CKTs 1807 (PPL) whenever undervoltage, overvoltage, or a stopped generator is detected on CKT 225 (RED).

When the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position, voltage is supplied to generator terminal L by the instrument cluster, turning on the regulator. The generator's voltage regulator controls current to the rotor, thereby controlling the output voltage. The rotor current is proportional to the electrical pulse width supplied by the regulator. When the engine is started, the regulator senses generator rotation by detecting AC voltage at the stator through an internal wire. Once the engine is running, the regulator varies the field current by controlling the pulse width. This operation regulates the generator output voltage for proper battery charging and electrical system operation. The generator F terminal is connected internally to the voltage regulator and externally to the PCM. The PCM monitors the field voltage on the generator F terminal.

It's more then likely just a lose connection somewhere . Could take half your vehicle apart to find it .

My first place to look would be here , G400
In the left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat
BCM ground .
