Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 97 Grand Prix GTP. The daytime running lights goes out. The display of the radio goes out at the same time. The radio still works, the windows works, brake ligths and signaling lights work ok. The fan works, the power seat/mirrors also work. The lights can stay off from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. This occurs sometimes when I start the car but mostly when I am driving. So I do not drive this car at night. There is no fault codes in the computer. Need help...3 dealer's techs have not been able to locate problem but they still charge me for looking. Thanks in advance
Certain circuits go through the ignition switch and sometimes the points in the switch become gummed up with carbon. The easiest fix is to replace the ignition switch. The switch can, however, be disassembled and cleaned by a skilled mechanic (there are many small springs and parts that have to be assembled properly).
Long story short, replace the ignition switch.
Hope this helps
