I had the exact same problem. You need to take your car to someone who can plug it in and scan and reset it for you. 

There is unfortunatly no other way.

My 2004 Pontiac grand am se1 acts like door is open and interior light stays on also does t lock on its own when in gear and lights don't blink and horn not honk when locking with key bob


Door ajar switch problem more then likely or wiring issue . The BCM - body control module won't turn off interior light , let door lock because it think's the door is open . The door ajar switch is a input to the BCM .

The first thing would be to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also check with an enhanced scan tool to see if the BCM shows ajar switch data (open or closed ? Do you know about body electronics ?
Body Control Module

The other day I turned on my car and my dashboard lit up with my check engine light, my EML light and my yellow brake light. Turning car off, then on, they disappeared. Then later re-appeared.


code p 0117 refers to engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --coolant thermostat, wiring short to ground --wiring short to positive ---ECT sensor

code p 0440 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system--malfunction===causes hose connection/s---intake leak/s --EVAP canister purge valve

code p 1508 refers to idle speed control (ISC) actuator --open coil--open circuit ===causes --wiring--connections ---ISC actuator---ECM
as there are no common items between the three codes
I would be inclined to find an accredited service center that works on your make of car to have the codes and listed possible causes checked out

Code B0936 what is it


b0936 - When engine coolant is at the proper level, the low coolant switch is closed. When in this condition, battery voltage is applied to the low coolant 1478 input of the body control module (BCM).
When coolant is below the proper level, the coolant switch opens. Because no voltage is applied to circuit 1478, the BCM responds by sending a serial data message to the instrument panel cluster to turn On the low coolant light.
The BCM has an internal timer, which will not turn On the low coolant telltale unless the coolant level is low for greater than 30 seconds. The timer avoids coolant "sloshing" falsely turning On the light.
B0936 Coolant level sensor circuit malfunction .
Check for poor connection at BCM. Inspect harness connector for backed out terminals, improper terminal mating, broken connector locks, improperly formed or damaged terminals and poor terminal to wire connection (terminal crimped over wire insulation and not conductors).


?€¢
Inspect wiring harness for damage. Check for broken or chafed insulation.


?€¢
Check for poor connection at the low coolant switch.


?€¢
If fault is suspected to be intermittent, wiggling harness wiring may help in locating fault.

ensure that the radiator is full to that radiator cap. Check that the wiring to the coolant level sensor is intact as it needs a complete circuit through the unit and coolant to operate correctly.

Why are dashboard lights flickering on saturn 2001


Your Body Control Module is failing. Your unit is behind the glove box up toward the top. Replacing this BCM is easy, but you'll need the dealership to adapter the unit with your car.

My 1995 neon has ~105K miles, just passed emmissions with flying colors 1 week ago, and the ''check engine light'' came on. I have checked oil, coolant, brake juice, fan belt and air conditioner belt. Car...


the light has nothing to do with oil or coolant levels. it comes on for one of the following reasons. You will need to have the system computer memory tested to see which fault the system has.
CODE Description of Trouble Code
11 Timing belt skipped 1 tooth or more from initial learned value, Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor, No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking
12 Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 key-on cycles (normal)
13 No change in MAP from start to run
14 MAP sensor voltage too low
15 No vehicle speed sensor signal
17 Closed loop temp not reached or engine cold too long
21 02s sensor problem (oxygen sensor), upstream or down stream
22 Engine coolant temp sensor out of range
23 Intake air temp sensor out of range
24 Throttle Position sensor out of range
25 Idle air control motor circuits, target idle not reached (+/- 200),vacuum leak found
27 Injector control circuit
31 Evap purge flow monitor failure or evap solenoid circuit
32 EGR system failure
33 A/C clutch relay circuit
34 Speed control Solenoid circuits
35 Rad Fan control relay circuit
37 Torque converter clutch solenoid CKT or park/neutral switch failure
41 Generator field not switching properly
42 Fuel pump relay control ckt, Auto shutdown relay control ckt, No ASD relay output voltage at PCM, Fuel level sending unit volts out of range, Fuel level unit No change over miles
43 Multiple/ single cylinder misfire
44 Battery temp sensor volts out of range
46 Charging system voltage too low
51 Fuel system lean
52 Fuel system rich
53 Internal control failure
54 No Cam signal at PCM
55 End of error messages (If you get this only, no errors were found)
62 PCM failure SRI mile not stored
63 PCM Failure EEPROM write denied
64 Catalytic Converter Efficiency Failure
65 Power steering switch failure

Fuse to turn off low coolant light on dashboard


there are no fuses for that. there is a sensor on the coolant tank that senses when you need to add antifreeze. Check for coolant level and add if low if not low you need a new sensor.
