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 1997 monte carlo wont start

The neutral safety switch is used in automatics and prevents the car from being started in gear. In your car it should be located atop the transaxle near the shift cable. There may be two switches on this model that screw into the trans. housing. One is the backup lights switch, the taller one is the neutral safety. Check for a problem with the shift cable. If the trans is not really in either park or neutral, it's not going to actuate the switch. If the car is a stick, there is instead, a safety switch actuated by the clutch pedal.

SOURCE: Try to start. Dash lights, headlights etc. I get

You could have a start that has gone bad and will need to be replace,or your having a Passlock system problem.

Your Passlock may need to relearn the ignition keys, if the ignition lock has gone bad like my in-laws Grand Am Gt, here is what i did so they will not get stranded any more. Buy a Passlock by pass module for around $70.00. You can orderone from GMPASSLOCK.COM in the mean time try resetting the Passlock. Good luck

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure
1.) Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2.) Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3.) Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4.) Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5.) Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6.) Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password.
7.) With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

No power to dash, key in ignition does nothing.


If I understand correctly, the headlights and brakelights work but the vehicle will not start and the dash lights do not work. That sounds impossible, so I'll merely suggest that you check the battery connectors and see that they are tightened down snug.

You should not be able to easily move them with a pliers. Sometimes, if you loosen them just a tad, and twist them a little, and retighten, you get better contact.

2006 ford Taurus dash lights not working and alarm when headlights are left on is also not working


If you have the owner's manual, check the chart showing which fuse is for the dash lights and that alarm. Try replacing that/those fuse(s) to see if you're back in working order. (Not sure where your fuse panel would be, but try the area under the dashboard on the driver's side.)

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.


Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

My Honda passport will not start. Its not the battery because the lights are on in the dash and battery is good i do hear a clicking below but not starter fusses are good however is there a fuse in the...


The clicking sound indicates that the battery is too low to start the vehicle. Accessories such as dash lights draw very little current, so they will work even when the battery is nearly depleted. Try removing the battery cables (negative first) and cleaning the cable ends and battery posts with a wire brush or sandpaper. Then check the water levels if yours is a serviceable battery, add distilled water if needed, replace and tighten the cables, then try to jump start from another vehicle. If it starts, let it run for a while and see if it will start again by itself. If so, that may be all you need. If it continues to lose its charge, you will need a new battery. If the vehicle will not start even with the jump, you may need a new starter.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

1994 grand Am Dash & Rear Lights


Check all the fuses, if they're ok then check the switch or wiring, it might be that the wire running from the switch to the park / dash lights is fried. Does the front park lights work? (turn switch to first click, not second one. This is park lights, second click is full on headlights) Your park and dash lights are probably all connected to a single wire from the switch via the fuse box.

Dash Lights Blow Fuses


Check the fuses. Look at the Amps given to the lights. It could be lower.

Check your fuse box. Sounds like it may be a fairly inexpensive fix.
