I have a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire . The "check gages " light comes on when my gas tank is on empty. I dont know if this is a right answer but this is how I know I need to fill up at the gasbar .
Answer location of check gauges lightthe check gauges light is on your instrument panel when it comes on it lights up saying check gauges
headlights and dash lights in 2001 sunfire wont turn on.
To change the reverse lights on a Pontiac Sunfire you need to locate it on the left side of the transaxle. Then, unplug the electric connector and remove the switch along with the socket.
is the trac align light mean
i have three on mine two tail lights and one under the spoiler
A bad fuel pump can cause stalling. The oil pressure will show low oil on the lights or gauges but if the pressure is ok then the switch should not cause stalling.
You could be having a problem with your spark plugs and your dashboard is alerting you. You should have a mechanic check it out.
yes thay do have DTR on a 1995 sunfire
Check the bulbs, check the fuse then check the switch.
You must first remove the trunk door facia. (This is the part with the "Pontiac" lights in it.) Then you can get to the bulb to replace it.
On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference in mine.
Dash ground is loose.
u have a blown headlight. change both bulobs and it will stop.
It is one big peice that must be removed. If you open the trunk, look on the inside of the lid behind the license plate, and you will find a few nuts that once removed, will allow you to remove the entire rear facia panel that the license plate bolts to and which houses the "PONTIAC" lights.
I should mention that the alternator has gone bad and been replaced, so has the battery. The various dash lights will often come on and go off for no apparent reason also.
After GOOGLING around a bit, I found out what that light means. (I've kinda been wondering too) It lights when it wants you to check the gauges for a possible problem; low fuel, high temp, low fuel pressure etc. FriPilot Answer: It is probably low fuel, check your guages to see if your gas is low,this warning sure beats running out of gas.
Main ground for dash is loose.
You might be able to get one through a dealership, but I'll bet they're danged expensive. I'd check with local junkyards.
You have to remove the tail light lens cover from inside the trunk- there are about 6 nuts holding it on --the whole cover comes off and bingo there are your lites for the Pontiac emblem that lights up!! There are no lights persay just for the Licence plates on my 96 Sunfire and I assume the same on a 98
if you pull up ever so slightly on the e-brake the lights wil go out. carefull not to engage the brake while moving. but just lifting it a little will engage a sensor that turns out the lights.
Probably the wrong bulbs or the brake lights are getting stuck "on". Or maybe a combination of the two. Check that you have the right bulbs and check to make sure something isn't keeping the brake lights on. FriPilot
check your fuses?
IT probably means that ur day time running lights and head light system is bad somewhere...
the quickest and easiest way to do it on any car is to pull the e-brake lever up until it clicks just one time.
possably the switch at the brake? do your brake lights work??
