Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix
I went to get a e check done and my car failed so I had work done and the codes cleared and now they wont do the e check they said my cars not ready that the computer needs to reset how long dues that take
Hi Lisa, The fault codes which are stored and displayed from the management system in the vehicle indicate defects which need attending to. Once the defects have been rectified the codes should be erased via the scanner and the vehicle should be derivable. If the anti theft codes have been erased and the workshop does not have the reset equipment, they may be hoping that they will reset by leaving the battery disconnected for a period of time. They may be lucky, but I'm doubtful. Best that they should call the agent and have it reset. There is no delay! Regards John

Here's a site to view what the part looks like, it's about $40. This info is assuming you have the 3.1 V-6, not sure if you have the 4 cyl. There is a charcoal canister that stores gas vapors so they won't be released into the atmosphere. These stored vapors are diverted to be burned by the engine. A defective purge solenoid valve won't allow the vapors to be burned, and the canister will eventually fill with gas. I changed one some time ago, and don't remember too well the procedure, but I believe it's just 1 or 2 bolts mounted on the upper engine area, I think it's on one of the valve covers, and a plug in (electrical). When you purchase the part, the parts store should be able to tell you the exact location. I remember the canister itself is under the coolant recovery tank. If you can see it (I seem to remember it was hidden) you can try to follow connections to the purge solenoid valve. Hope this helps, sorry to be somewhat vague, it's been a while since I changed it!

Normally you would have it scanned find out what the problem is and fix it then with the same scanner erase the code which would turn off your light but if you dont fix the problem the lights just going to come back on.There are two ways to clear the codes the best is with the scanner the other is disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes.
