You have a 1991 Chevy lumina it is hard to start when running the emergency light is on the emergency light flickers on and off when braking?
First of all, I don't think the 2 are related...hard to start andthe brake light thing. As far as the emergency brake-I don'trecall, but the light staying on might signal that a brake light isburned out. I'd check my brake lights first. Second, and I don'tknow this for a fact either because I never …looked on my LUmina.But on other cars, here's what I'd do: after releasing theemergency brake, take your foot and pull out on the emergency brakepedal to make sure it's returned all the way out. If the light isstill on, look under the dash at the emergency brake pedal andlocate the "switch" that's activated by this pedal and make surethat the switch doesn't need adjusted. When the emergency brakepedal is fully returned, it should not be STILL hitting the switch.You can adjust this switch. Assuming I'm correct about the switchbeing there...after I verified that the switch is not needingadjustment, I'd fiddle with this switch (spin the plunger, checkthe wire connection...things like that) to see if I could get thelight to go off...indicating that the switch is frozen. After thisI might disconnect the wire to the switch to see if the light wentout. (MORE)

Your 2000 Chevy s10 wont start when the security light blinkswhen it goes off after a while it will turn on with no problemscan anyone tell you how to fix this?
Answer Security problem, either your key is dead (if 2000 has a key chip, not sure) or something wore out in your ignition. Either way an automotive locksmith is what you need
Chances are you have a defective brake light switch. The switch should be found under the dash touching the upper part of the brake pedal lever. I would unplug it , see that the lights are off, and circuit test both sides. Most auto parts stores have these. I hope this helps you. Mark This can be… caused by a sticky brake pedal that does not retract fully to the original position. It happened to me and the solution was to spray some silicone or w40 on the rubber boot that is found under the steering wheel. (MORE)
Answer . \nThere should be a switch you push in left of the steering wheel.

Delayed Headlamps The delayed headlamps feature provides a period of exterior lighting as you leave the area around your vehicle. The feature is activated when the headlamps are on due to the automatic headlamps control feature described previously in this section, and when the ignition… is turned off. Your headlamps will then remain on until the exterior lamps control is moved to the parking lamps position or until either a 30 second or 60 second lighting period has ended. If you turn off the ignition with the headlamps switch in the parking lamps or headlamps position, the delayed headlamps cycle will not occur. To disable the delayed headlamps feature or change the time of delay, see Vehicle Customization Settings on page 3-91. Programmable Modes To reset or customize the features, first enter the vehicle customization main menu. To enter the main menu, do the following: 1. Turn the ignition to ACC or ON. The radio must be off. 2. Press and hold the TUNE or DISP knob on the radio for at least five seconds until SETTINGS is displayed. 3. Press the SEEK or PSCAN up or down arrows to scroll through each available feature on your main menu. 4. Press the PREV or NEXT buttons to scroll through the lower menu. An asterisk (*) will appear next to the item that is the current setting. The following information shows how to reset or customize features after entering the main menu. LT DELAY (Delayed Headlamp Illumination) This feature allows the headlamps and parking lamps to stay on for a set amount of time after you exit the vehicle, or to turn off immediately. Programmable Modes Mode 1: OFF Mode 2: 30 SEC Mode 3: 60 SEC Your vehicle was originally programmed to Mode 2. The mode may have been changed since then. To determine the current mode, or to change the mode, do the following: 1. Scroll, using the SEEK/PSCAN up or down arrows, until LT DELAY appears on the display. 2.

it is possible that maybe an electrical switch may be connected to the emergency brake and it is gone bad and won't send a message to where it needs to go to let the car know that the brake is off, or maybe there is something keeping the brake handle from going all the way down and keeping the light… on. just a hint. these new cars are strange the way they are made. switches and sensors are famous on these new vehicles. The engines might run the vehicle, but computer and wires and switches and sensors, are a big part of that make up too. Also possible, if the cable is pulled too tight, and has stretched, the cable might not be releasing enough to turn the light off. hope some of this is helpful, if not . Hope you get a better answer. Happy New Year. Wish you well. (MORE)
Have you checked your gauge panel dimmer switch ( just to the right of your headlight switch in your dash ) If that has been rotated all the way in one direction that will keep all your interior lights on with all the doors closed
Check that a door sensor isn't broken. When you are in the car and all the doors are closed and the car is on, check if the light on the dashboard that signals that a door is open is lit. If it is the sensor switch will need to be fixed on whichever door is broken. On the second generation Clio, …the interior light can be switched between the main light and a movable spotlight. Carefully moving the switch to between the two modes will turn off the interior light. (MORE)

How do you repair brake light problem on 1995 Honda ex when the brake lights wont turn off even when the car is turned off?
There is a switch located on the brake pedal that is most likely causing the problem. Re-adjust the switch if it's out of adjustment or if it is broken disconnect it until you can get a replacement. Just remember your brake lights won't work at all without the switch.
It sounds like the fog lamp relay is stuck shut (on). It's located under the hood on the driver's side, under the plastic cover. You might try rapping on it (lightly) with a screwdriver. That might make it open up, but you will still need to replace it.
You have to reset the oil life in the computer to get it to go out.
The interior lights may sometime stay on due to accumulation of dirt in each door latch. Clean out all 4 door latches and remove grit. You can use silicone or WD40. To much WD40 will cause additonal dirt to accumulate so use sparingly. This will repair the door adjar error and allow the interior lig…hts to work correctly. This is common on all 1995-2002 Lincoln Continentals and cleaning the door latch area will clean the sensor. (MORE)

I have a 04 Colorado its easy..... put the key in run and push the GAS IN 3 TIMES and its fixed!!
First try and disconnect the battery (positive side) for about 10 minutes. If this does not work take it to a local auto parts dealer and usually they won't charge you to reset the computer. They can also tell you what codes come up. Dealer will charge usually a minimum charge of 1/2 hr shop rate.
You will need a engine scanner to do that. There is a reason that it came on, and if you did not repair the problem then it will just come back on.
My PS3 did the same thing. It was because of dust building up inside the machine. Open the cover on the left side, unscrew the blue screw and carefully remove the harddisk. I used a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust inside and on the harddisk and then reinserted it. I then used the vacuum on all the… vents to remove dust from the inside, plugged everything back in and it works. Try it out. (MORE)
Either the switch (on the handbrake) is sticking or you have a short circuit, usually caused by corroded wires or connections.
Lots of things could be the culprit however the usual problem is sulfur buildup on the sending unit. If you run Seafoam or Techron though the tank it should fix the problem after a couple of tanks. Cheap gas (Non Top Tier) will cause these types of problems. If you need more help visit our enthus…iasts forum at www.trailvoy.com (MORE)
07 Impreza running lights wont go off when car off unless fuse taken out. Running light headlight switch not turned on Rear lights psgr side running light and parking stay on Drvr sidedontstayon?
Make sure that the switch on the top of the steering column in turned off. That controls the running lights on the car. FYI that switch is basically used if you are pulled over somewhere and don't need help but yet you need your lights on and still need to take your keys.
ignition switch wired wrong . wire from coil hooked to hot post instead of switched post
Take it to a shop or take the batter out and let it reset itself then put the batter back in
The number of short flashes before the pause(1-10) corresponds to an ABS trouble code. I don't have the chart available to me but I have found it online before when encountering the same issue.
No. There is no switch or key lock feature to manually turn off the passenger side airbag. If there is no one in the seat it will automatically turn off. The seat has a sensor that senses when someone is sitting in the seat.
Assuming headlights, check fuses. Overheadlights, check override button left side of dash board near odometer.
becaus the 2004 Chevy impala does not have automatic lights and they have to be turned off manually
Emergency lights, also known as Hazard Lights, can be turned offvia a switch on the center console of the dash. The button has atriangle pictured on top of it.
Go to the dealership and have a key made. The key has a chip in it that turns the light off. If you are just using a duplicate the light will stay on. On rare occasions a battery that will not hold a good charge anymore will cause the light to stay on. You can have your battery tested at any autopar…ts store for free. (MORE)
There is a reason why it is on. Check the fluid level, it may be low. This would be an indication that you need to have the brakes checked soon.
The switch does not control that light. The switch controls another light or it may control a wall outlet or outlets. In very rare instances the switch has shorted out and needs replacing.
No, they have separate flasher relays. Be sure to check bulbs and fuses too when trouble shooting flasher issues. On some vehicles also check license plate bulb/wiring, trailer hitch wiring and don't forget the center, high-mount stop light (3rd brake light) bulb(s). See sources and related links b…elow if its a bulb issue. (MORE)
could be a problem with your alarm, have you recently installed a new car alarm? Have it checked out by your dealer.
Had the same problem on my Applause. The brake switch punches asmall hole in the rubber stopper on the brake pedal and causes theswitch to stay on. Quickest way around this is to rotate the rubberstopper 180 degrees so the switch contacts a new area. Bingo goodfor another 10 years
set info to oil life turn key off then turn key to on postion with engine off pump gas pedal 3 times
Your car has 2 flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The one for the turn signals is defective and needs replacing. It is located on the drivers side, under the dash, on the drivers side of the steering column, behind the dash lower panel, mounted at the base of the… fuse panel. (MORE)
