Question about 1996 Saturn SC
1st - the service light with wrench came on a few weeks ago and my mechanic was unable to find the cause, he told me to take it to the Saturn dealership for diagnosis (they want to charge a fortune just to tell me what the problem is). This is not the "service engine soon" light, it only says "service" with a picture of a wrench next to it.
2nd - my radio stopped working and shows "loc", any suggestions?
First problem - the wrench icon is usually not a failure light like a check engine light - it's a resettable reminder light that something (most likely an oil change) is due. When the service is done, the intent is that the light is reset, and the next time it illuminates, you'll bring the car back in, do what's required, and turn it off again. It's just a reminder is all.
Second problem - your factory stereo lost its power to the memory system, and now it's in secure mode. You need the unlock code to be able to use it again. That should be on a card in the bundle of manuals in your glovebox. If it's not, take the registration, title, and photo ID to the dealer and have them look up the number by the VIN of the car. They may charge up to an hour's labor to do this, so make sure they write it down for you and show you how to enter it, so you're not stuck paying again if you lose power to the stereo.
