perhaps something the old owner did that you didn't know about.

you would think the running lights or other interior lights would not be behind the deck. There is some circuitry that is tied from the radio to the headlight/dimmer switch which is connected to the power supplied for other illumination circuits and obviously the headlight circuitry.

Default Same issue

I just replaced my factory stereo two weeks ago and the same thing has happened to my Monte. Do you know what they had replaced? What fuses it was?

Hi All,
I have an issue with my security light coming on and that causes my car didn't start. The first time this happened, I had checked battery and complementary part for servicing purpose. The car ran fine for a few days, but now the light comes on again. PLEASE HELP!

Steve, what fixed mine was a master reset of the security system. Leave the car in the ON position for 9 minutes. Security light should be solid on and not flashing. Turn key off and then restart.
