#323 of 475 lighting fuse or micro relay
Dec 17, 2008 (12:43 pm)
on the way to work this morning my headlights, tail lights, and dash lights went out. Is this due to a bad micro relay in the fuse box under the hood? Maybe #19 or #20 which are listed as being for automatic light control? 2001 Grand Am SE

Hi all, need your help.
My 1996 Grand Am (137,000 miles)- check engine soon light came on. Car seems to excelerate on its own and when that happens, strong gasoline smell in the car, especially when the heat is on.
Just replaced 02 sensor.
Thanks much for your replies.

Use an Ohmmeter to check your fuses. Sometimes they look good, but are open. Do the same with the lights, but of course, it's unlikely that they would all have burned out at the same time.
Next, check the flasher module. I don't know where that's located on your car... you will have to get a shop manual to find that out. If you don't have a shop manual, you can subscribe to an online service that has shop manuals for your vehicle at this web address:
Good luck. I hope it's not wiring. The shop manual will give you step by step instructions for finding your problem.

My ABS light always comes on. I can turn the trac off before putting in gear and it will not always come on. However, I would rather fix the issue. Do I need to replace the wheel bearings or is there a sensor some where that can be replaced.

Check the fuel pressure regulator valve on fuel rail 30 min to 1 hour to replace
$68.00 for new regulator, if not look for fuel leaks on hoses.
