2000 Pontiac Grand am

Good morning,
my "service vehicle soon" light has been coming on but not all the time. And sometimes the daytime running lights don't come on. This morning it took a few seconds for the rest of the dashboard lights to come on after starting the car and about 15 seconds for the vent to come on. The manual says could be something with the sensor under the grill by the wipers. Course that's filled with leaves and I can't figure out how to get the plastic tabs out so I clean that area out. I'm taking it to the dealer later unless someone can offer me some advise.

No, your doing the right thing. The computer has to be scanned for info and codes to determine what put the light on. Post back if you have any questions about their advice.

keep it clean

You said the grill in front of the window is full of leaves?Keep the leaves out what happens is they get wet and cause corrosion.Not only that it restricts air flow for your vents.
Check for leaves were your door meets the body they get in there also and cause corrosion.
I do a leaf inspection about every 6 months.

The original poster is no longer on the forums (3 yrs ago). Do what the other posts have said, get the codes read for free at Autozone. When you get these codes, report back here and create a new thread in forums.

Be sure to check your battery and alternator voltages as well.

I am closing this thread.
