Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On the dash resets every time I turn
the car off I've already looked at the
manual and checked all of the fuses

nothing. Any info or speculation

Double check the battery cable connections. Sounds like a BCM (Body Control Module) problem. Possible bad ground or blown fuse. Did you remove the battery cables: negative (-) first then positive (+) and install: Positive (+) first, then negative (-). That's the proper procedure. HTH. -Jim
