Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek

Pontiac Aztek GT

My Aztek's battery will die if I don't pull a fuse in the engine compartment and lately some of my interior lights have went out as well including the shift lights on the auto trans and the middle section of the CD and AC and the play and volume button on my steering wheel. The left passenger door will not come unlocked and you have to reach in and unlock it manualy, the airbag light comes on and if I hit a bump will go off but then comes back on. The other day (I had my fuse pulled so car wouldn't die) and then out of no where my horn went off sounding a loud long non stop blast and I couldn't get it to shut off, I put my fuse in clicked my lock unlock buttons then started my car and it stopped. What the hell is going on w/ my car? Its a 2001 Aztek GT help me please!!!!!!!

We replaced BMC with one that matched used and every thing worked but tail lights and electric cooling fan.Dealer will not program the BMC unless you buy a new one from them.Also when the radio is locked the method I was told to retrive the numbers to enter from the radio didn't work.Dealers just want to rip you off.

Ours did the exact same thing. It eventually did the 'disco effect' where the head lights were flashing constantly and horn honking. It would only stop if we took the fuse for the Body Control Module out for 30 seconds.
Only that was a temporary fix. It finally got so bad that the car locked itself down and we had to take it in. The BCM had to be replaced (cost us $350) and it seems to do a lot better, but the radio is still locked but it might just have to be reset. Hope it helps!

Cant find fuse for tail lights on 2000 pontiac aztek


The fuse compartments are usually under the dash, behind the foot panel on the driver/passenger side. These panels are snapped on and can be pulled off with a good tug. Another compartment area is under the hood on the drivers side near the firewall side. Your manual will tell you which one is which.

Stalling at low speeds for a 2002 Pontiac Aztek


Does the battery light come on before the engine dies, or after ?
After is normal because the engine is not turning the alternator.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?
Common causes for stalling are a dirty throttle body or faulty idle air control valve.

2005 pontiac aztek cigarette lighter fuse... which one is it?


It is located in the fuse panel under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. It's been a long time since I have worked on one but believe it's in the rear on the right (passenger) side of the vehicle but don't quote me on that. In any case below is a picture of the fuse layout and I marked the fuse (# 32) that control power to power ports in the front not the aux port in back. It should be a 20 amp fuse. Hope this helps....

I need to know what fuse is for the power side mirrors for a pontiac aztek


Without knowing the year of your Aztek, I can only take a stab with what I know about the 2001.
This vehicle has two fuse & relay centers, the first one is located in the engine compartment, on top of the windshield washer fluid reservoir (you don't want this one for the problem you described).
The second one is located inside the passenger area of the vehicle, behind the center console, to the right of the gear shift lever.
Locate the removable access panel and give it a good yank to expose the fuse panel.
3_27_2012_7_05_49_pm.gifNow locate and check the fuses in slots # 16 and 17 (one of these should be your culprit).
See diagram below.3_27_2012_7_14_38_pm.gif
After you have replaced the fuse (with a fuse of the same amperage) place the access panel onto the opening and give it a whack with the **** of you fist or a rubber mallet.

I hope this helps,Danno

My interior lights wont shut off and it drains the battery, how do i switch off the fuse so my battery doesnt die?


When you open the driver's side door, you will find a small switch located on the front of the door frame towards the engine compartment. If you push it, the lights should go off. If you push it and the lights don't go off, there is your problem - if the driver's door switch is okay, try the passenger side by doing the same thing.

If that doesn't work and you are sure that you have the panel switch set to off, then you may want to pull the bulb out of the interior light until you can get to the root cause.

You may not be able to pull the fuse without losing other functions too.

The interior lights won't shut off. I have to


Did you ever find a solution to this problem? We are having the same problem but we did find that the car has a battery protection device. The lights will go out after 10 minutes of the ignition being off but this does not help with driving at night with the interior lights being on while traveling. Any suggestions?
