Your best bet is to take the vehicle to an automotive electrical specialist to have them resolve the problem there is far too many things that could be going on that could potentially lead to a fire which will inevitably be detrimental to your car but depending on the exact situation when it happens it could cause harm to you or possibly someone else

I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix and after fueling my car the service engine soon light came on. I am unaware of why it came on. I am not due for an oil change yet and I don't over accelerate it by gunning...

Need a repair shop to check for codes
& find a problem

There is nothing that tells you when to change your oil

You need to study OBD 2 Systems, to learn why you get
dash lights on & what to do,assuming you have no owners manual

Heater fan only runs on high speed not the middle settings

Follow the 2 wires back from the motor under the dash. The speed controller is the fault. It's default when it fails will allow for high speed operation only. The unit that the 2 wires come from is the controller. Replace that unit.
