#100 of 253 Parking lights, Tail Lights, Tag Light, and Gauges don't come one.
Jul 14, 2007 (12:27 pm)
I have a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am SE. Just recently the parking lights, tail lights, tag light and the gauge lights cut out but the headlights still work. I checked all of the fuses and none of them are blown. I tried playing around with the buttons and they still won't come on. They cut on every once in a while but usually cut right back off. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I went to all the local auto stores and they couldn't tell me what it was. I replaced all the fuses and light bulbs and they still are not working.
#101 of 253 Pontiac GA GT Check Engine Light is out, help!
Apr 26, 2007 (9:21 am)
1997 GAGT check engine light stays off when the key is in the ignition(on position) and the engine is off. It is the only dashboard light that malfunctions and never comes on. I've heard some mechanics say that I may need to replace the entire dasboard lights cluster vs. a single bulb because of the cluster's design. I'm not convinced. Is anyone familiar with this issue, and is there a cost friendly solution to getting this (Malfunction Indicator Light)bulb to illuminate?
The related OBD trouble codes indicate P0141 (O2 sensor heater circuit bank 1 sensor 2) and P0404 (Exhaust Gas Recirculation control circuit range)

Has anyone had any problems with there check engine light? My 2000 grand am, it came on and I had it checked at Auto Zone and the code came back small leak in the emissions. So, they said chances are it's the gas cap. Replaced the cap and reset the light, and 3 weeks later it's back on again, and the code came up the same thing. Any ideas from anyone on what this could be? Thanks!!

Could be a leak somewhere else in the vapor recovery system if your getting the same code. You were putting on the cap tight enough until it clicks a few times, right?

3 clicks is usually good. Did the light come on shortly after re-fuel? New cap aftermarket that may not seal exactly right? Its my understanding that overfilling fuel tank (trying to get to exact dollar amount thing) may damage some evaporative systems. Is there a tether on cap that may be stuck underneath and preventing good seal? Mis-aligned cap? Just some thoughts on possibilities

Thanks for your responses. I usually turn the gas cap till it clicks 3 times. Last time I fueled up was last Wednesday and didn't fill it, just about 3/4 of a tank. The light came back on Tuesday of this week.

My fog lamps doesn't work. Bulbs are fine. Fog lights switch inside the car doesn't light up. What could it be?

Your high beams aren't on are they?

The high beams works fine

Then the places I would look in this order:
Fuse (if a seperate fuse, not sure)
Fog Lamp switch (is it really working)
I asked about the high beams since the factory wired fog lamps will go off when the high beams are turned on.
