Re: Dash warning lights

Look it up in your owner's manual.

Ahh yes it is the infamous service engine light. You are probably throwing a code, if I had to guess the throttle pedal position sensor. But next time it happens idle the car and grab the code eventually it will still on.

So you have had that problem with the throttle position sensor? Has this been a common defect?

Yes, and they issued a TSB about it, but when I went to the dealer under warranty they claimed nothing was wrong with it. I went in about 3 times, and 3 different dealers looked at me like I was crazy.

I ended up replacing the throttle position sensor after pulling the code and finding the TSB. It's not a hard job just follow the directions, and heat the TB up like the directions say.

Not the brake light, but the rear turn signals went frequently. What I did to fix that problem was I cleaned that area really well with a damp cloth and water. I started by wiping the assembly's off, the metal behind them, and the rubber gaskets even the connectors (with a little cotton ball and rubbing alcohol). After everything dried I waxed the metal back there, took a q- tip with vaseline (not too much), and rubbed the gasket, and put a little on the bulb itself. It has helped the problem a little.

I also put all new bulbs in when I did that. I just got fed up of one going out then the other. I just decided I would solve this problem once and for all!

Thanks good tips, I will definitely try it, I wonder if the sequential aftermarket harness has the same problem? It wouldn't be a bad investment if it solved it.
