Re: 2002 SL2 automatic code reader?

Re: Replacement key won't unlock door, but ignition OK!

Re: Fuses

If im not mistaken, the auto industry decided to color code see thru plastic fuses for easier identification of good ones and blown fuses. Each color coincides with fuse amperage. There are oem blade...

Re: Replacement key won't unlock door, but ignition OK!

Re: Security systems in 01 and 02 SC2

Third gen S-series adopted Passlock security. The L-series, Vues Aura and Ions have it in one form or another. GM made Passlock and evolved as models changed. Passlock's main feature (adopted due to...

Re: ABS + BRAKE light

No. In general, if neither the abs nor engine light are on, error codes are not stored. This means everything is fine and if any error codes weren't erased via reader reset, ecm/pcm fuse...
