Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix

Open Question

My power windows,and radio won't work in my grand prix!

I had to slam on my brakes today because another vehicle entered the intersection that wasn't suppose to. I went to my destination and a few minutes later when i got back into my car my power widows and radio won't work. Also there is light that is illuminated with an exclamation and a "p" next it. Finally, when i go to put my car in park that is sort of grinding noise that i hear.

Any idea of what this might be?

dont know if this will help... but my Windstar had the same issue with the lights... it was just the sensor screwing up or no longer attached properly. as far as the grinding goes... it could be the abs kicking in because of a faulty sensor, but poke your head in and take a look at the brake assembly and make sure your pads are ok and that everything is attached properly.

hope it helps:)

When you put the trans in park, then back into drive, Is the turning directly corresponding with the noise? Putting it in park should have nothing to dowith the turn. What happens if you don't put it in park. Is the trans still in drive if you followed through with the turn? Have your motor mounts checked. a bad motor mount will allow unintentional partial gear shifting and placing in park reset everything. You may be hearing the parking Pawl in the trans. good luck.

At 80000 miles there is a very good chance that you are ready for new front pads. That is precisely what I tell my customers when I exchange brake pads. "Come and see me in about 80000 miles" The sensors will pick up on a fimly depressed brake pedal and then store it in the computer. This indicator is fed by two sources brake wear and milage. It's best to get them now before you end up needing rotors too! Thanks, Dana

I would guess you should have brakes checked. Sounds like you might possibly need new pads and rotors are probably warped.

1997 grand prix window won't work

Do you need a new motor

How would someone know that?

You need a wiring diagram or at least
match up the cut wires,solder & heat shrink them

Then diagnose the motor,switches,etc

I buy factory wiring diagrams for all my vehicles
I never approach the vehicle without them
One quick check of what does work,then into
the wiring manual

You can not repair something you know nothing about,
need reference material

Helm.Com ---for manuals & lots of money

Changes 97 grand prix ignition switch, starts but shuts off, no security light. no power to windows,radio

I believe you need a Coded Key for your vehicle.. If your original key had a chip underneath the black cover of the key. You may need to get the ignition switch an the key from the Dealer, an once it is installed they will have to Code it.. Goodluck..

I have a locked radio for a 2000 pontiac grand prix thanks to a battery exchange...can anyone help ...the 6 dig code is 292298

Hello! You have done half of the work already! You can take the code, and the VIN to your vehicle; and call your local GM dealership. Tell them that you need the unlock code for the radio, and they will ask you for that information.

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Hope this helps and good luck!
