Default Help, Indicator Lights Won't go off

Hello, I am new on this fourm. Yesterday I had to install a new drivers side mirror on my 2000 Pontiac Bonneville. When I installed it I realized that the power mirror wasn't working. The mirror worked prior to changing it so I decided to check the fuses in the fuse box. All the fuses were good so I put everything back in where they were and started my car. Now my Traction, ABS & break light indicators on the dash are lit and will not go off. Also the tire gauge info is blank and just has lines where it would normally show the tire pressure amounts. Everything was working fine prior to pulling anything in the fuse box. I don't know if their is any system reset I have to do. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank You

I also wanted to add that the fuse panel I checked was the one on the drivers side door and I only pulled the fuses. I did not pull any modules or anything like that. Thank again.

sometimes the fuse sockets get loose anyway so messing with them probably made one loose contact. i would use a small screwdriver and carefully tighten the fuses you pulled out paying attention to there being voltage on all of those so dont go across two at once.


im trashing your other thread, we would rather you stick to one per question to alleviate confusion.

Thanks, I will look at that.
I also made a mistake, the fuse panel that I checked was on the passenger side Not the driver side. And to give a little more information. It was a boy for fuse that I pulled. Fuse # 5,6, 9 & 10. They were for the lo beam and hi beams. I was looking for the fuse for the mirror but didn't see anything in the Manuel. Thanks again. Any help is appreciated.
