You have to replace the entire instrument cluster. there is no way of just fixing the led readout for the gear select/odometer

PRDNL is caused by corroded resistors on the instrument panel, they're easy to replace with some from radioshack.

I'm researching the SVS, ABS and Trac light combo now and from what I've seen on the web it's most likely related to the wheel bearing sensors or the bearings themselves. The 1st step is to go to AutoZone/Advanced Auto or one of the others and have them hook of the code scanner, this is usually free.

    I forgot to mention that if you do get a new instrument cluster it will not display the mileage from your car since the mileage is stored on the instrument cluster itself. So if you're nervous about soldering it's worth the trouble of finding someone else to do it for you.

Need to turn the caution lights off on the dashboard


Well ,that's because there is a problem with the system an there are What are call DTC'S -diagnostic trouble codes stored in the modules , computers ! You need to take to a repair facility that has a professional grade scan tool that can read codes in the body control module !
SERVICE VEHICLE SOON
The IPC illuminates the SERVICE VEHICLE SOON in the following conditions:
?€¢
The BCM detects certain malfunctions in the lighting system. The IPC receives a class 2 message requesting illumination from the BCM.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communication with the BCM.


This year vehicle as with all newer vehicles have several control modules that control the engine , air bags , antilock brakes , anti-theft system ,Heating an air conditioning ,the instrument cluster an some others ! These modules are all connected on a class 2 serial data communication network so the modules can share information ! Your best bet is to take it to GM dealership or a ASE certified repair shop before you guess an just replace parts , that will cost you more in the long run !

My trac off abs and service vehicle soon lights are all on mechanic said wheel barrings are fine ,,whats the problem and is it safe to drive 425 mile out of town and back?


Probably just a wheel sensor out. It will be fine to drive that far and back. You wont have tracton control or antilock brakes. Meaning that if you slam on the brakes the tire can lock up and skid. When the abs is out it reverts to the old braking system that they used in all vehicles for decades.

Engine service soon displayed on dashboard allways. vehicle chevy van g20 starcraft 1993.


Why not just have the codes read and reset at a place like Autozone, that does it for free?
It could just be odometer based, telling you a maintenance is due based on miles.

Abs light, trac light, service engine soon light 2001 Pontiac Grand Am


Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

A bytton in my car an when i push it the letters trac on


the button is for a feature call low traction , when the low trac light is on ( on the dashboard ) the traction control system is off. when you press the button again the light should go off ( low trac. on) I leave mine on all the time. it works with the antilock brake system. if the computer detects that the wheels are starting to slip or slide , it cycles abs on and off quickly to help you remain in control of car, feature is more designed for driving on icey roads. Just leave low trac. on and dont worry about it ( no trac, light on dash) hope this helps S.R. Peace

Service vehicle soon light is on, scanner at gm dealer read no codes. what all sensors activate this light. aso trac light is on. traction button(in stupid place) doesn't work


ok there is a difference between the check engine light and service vehicle soon light. The service vehicle soon light comes on when a bulb is out on the daytime running lights. Check your bulbs if there is one out and you put a new one in it will most likely take car of problem.
