Did it help? Watched it through to the end? I hope so! It’s worth your while. And it’s a great free resource.

Now, with that out of the way, we are going to talk….

Know that one of the most common errors here, leading to those IBR lights flashing like crazy, is something that, silly as it sounds, many of us can actually forget to look for…. yet it is, as a matter of darn tootin’ fact, one of the SIMPLEST and most easily – fixed little hiccups : Your connectors on the battery cable itself, and that terminal, being a bit loose. Just like with your car, for instance, if they are not properly secured and rightly connected all the way up to their source of power ( that internal battery, of course ), then you are going to find yourself having every sort of hiccup in the book, including, but sure as heck not limited to, flashing lights! So check there first. See your manual to find where your Spark’s battery lies and see the full diagram of the layout internally…. very good stuff to familiarize yourself with and even memorize if you can.

Make sure those cables and connectors, not to mention that Spark battery, is not corroded, rusting up, over – filthy and not able to send the proper signals to itself internally. To be extra safe and precautious, and really give yourself a chance to truly check properly for yourself, dis – connect that battery fully. Do it by finding the screws holding up the actuator shaft with its U – arm and then un – screwing those. Use your hand to move the gate there…. go up and down freely, a few times, to make sure that no movement is restricted there, on that end, and that nothing is really blocking anything on the inside. Take out each cable and connector to the battery, check them and clean them up, then re – connect it all.

Also, look in your fuse box ( refer to the manual, once again, which is free online, by the way…. for where to find this as well ) to check the control and power fuses. It is good to give them a good check – up every once in a while, anyways, so now you have a good excuse to, he he he heh….

But also, the issue itself may be lying within any bus – related CAN error codes or faulty internal messages. Also, does your gate mechanism have a whole heaping of unneeded back lash? So much of that is bad, trust me. It’s a whole nother issue all on its own, I would add.
