I have seen two differnet things cause this. A bad ignition switch can cause this. I have also seen windshields leak and the water runs across the headliner, down the front left windshield trim and into the fuse block, which is where all of the modules Class 2 data wires meet, and then the water will short the power circuits. If it has gone long enough like this you can pull the relays out of the left fuse block in the dash and find green corrosion on the back of the relays and in the fuse block.

How do you change the oil on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


you need to remove the drain plug from the oil pan, make sure the pan plug gasket is not dropped. Then you remove the filter & replace with a new one. After the oil has been left to drain. put the pan plug snuggly back into the oil pan. Refill 4.5 liters of 5w 30w engine oil. Start the engine, check for any leaks from both the new filter & pan plug. Turn off igntion & check the oil level on the dipstick. to make sure it is at the topp off the cross stitched area, if not add more a half liter at a time until it is at the full mark. There is nothing to grease with this car. U should also check transmission fluid, whick needs to be checked while the engine is running in park, there is a hot & cold safe level so check it carefully.

Engine won't start!!!!!


It's possible the "anti-thielf" system has been failing and went out while you was driving. If the ignition key has a chip in the shaft of the key your car has anti-thieft. It's possible the system doesn't reconisethe igntion key and shut the system down. Try using another igntion key if it came with 2 keys. If the engine started you'll need to get the other igntion key replace.

Engine won"t turn over(crank)


I ran into this once also, and I remember that I just disconnected the battery for about half an hour.

Try that if you haven't already.
