      Most likely you have a defective switch or one of the two fuses that control the radio is blown. One powers the radio when the key if off (twilight mode) and the other is when the car is ON. Normally fuses get blown when there's a short circuit in the wiring system.

      Could be a couple of things. Start by checking the fuses. If memory serves me the horn fuse is located in the fuse box inside the car. There is usually also a relay to check that could be located in the interior fuse box or more likely under the hood in the fuse box. Lastly sometimes the horn just goes... a replacement horn is usually pretty cheap.

      check horn harness for power when pushing on pad .ifpower is there horns are bad or waterloged
      replace.if no power go to turn signal connector at base of colume probe all wires with a test light

    How do you change the Sentinal Light system sensor on the dashboard?
    It appears that it might come out of the dashboard from the top. Is there a written procedure for this published by GM or anyone else? My headlights seem to be on 90% of the time except in bright sunshine

    Trunk will not close completely
     
    • Pave Low

      The trunk latch contains a switch which closes when the trunk lid is pushed closed by hand, then this switch sends power to the trunk lid pull down motor which then finishes closing the trunk lid. Often the switch or motor will go bad and the whole thing will stop working. It takes a little testing to figure out which part is at fault but they are usually quite easy to fix.

    The last time I was able to raise the window using the button, I heard a loud crack noise and now the window goes down by itself and the button to raise and lower it isn't working.

      I would start by checking the battery terminals... clear the corrosion or replace them if they're really bad. Make sure the wires are connecting nice and tight. Inspect the wires that you can see for any missing pieces of insulation or other damage. Also if you happen to have an after-market stereo system (especially a sub woofer) you may need to add a capacitor into the system. If this is the case then the lights would be flickering to the beat of the music you're listening to.

      Hope this helps!

      Speaking of after market stereos, someone installed a "Kenwood". Could they have a ground wire touching a hot wire or something grounding out behind the stereo? Would this cause the flickering. The stereo is a detachable face and I never bring it or play the stereo...lights flicker regardless.

      Yeah it's possible you could have a wire shorting out behind the stereo. You'll probably need a stereo removal tool to get the head unit out.

      No sub-woofer just a Kenwood CD stereo w/ detachable face w/remote. The stereo is out now, sill have flickering when car is running. When car is off, lights are bright and glow normally. It's only when the car is ON.

      if u notice the headlights get dim and when u axcell at night and they get brighter u need to recheck
      the battery and charging sys. sometimes for interior lights it is the door jam switch. also test the
      switch it should turn the lights off before the door starts to close fully and seat. check the entry
      light sys for proper oper. it may be the entry module. its strange u say its the inside and outside
      lights.this seems like 2 problem. explain flashing or is it gettin dim than bright
      cadieman
      9/22/2010 Gino3
      When the car is off, I can put headlights on and open door and all interior and exterior lights are bright and steady glow. When I start the car, the lights inside and outside flicker-sitting still in park, while driving and sitting at a light. I did pull the stereo out hoping to find a wire or ground shorting system, but nothing. I kept the stereo out until I can fix this problem. I have new battery terminals, cables are tight, alternator and battery are new???

    How can I fix lights from flickering when car is on. When car is off and turn on lights, they are bright and don't flick
    Battery new, alternator new, cables are new and tight, no stereo or ground wires loose????
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Hi Gino3, a bad ground wire is the possibility. You need a technician to do a continuity or resistant test.
