Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
I own a 97 Grand Prix GTP and the dash board lights and taillights are gone I checked the fuses and there fine any other suggestions?
SOURCE: Replacing dash lights
You may be able to reach the bulbs from the back of the instrument panel, you will need to remove any lower panels that block access, if they can't be removed from the back then you will have to R&R the instrument cluster assy and any other unit that has defective bulbs, make sure you get the correct repacement bulbs, they may look the same but have diffwerent luminosity ratings, wrong bulb will be to dim or to bright and hot burning, this can damage the bulb socket, check your owners manual for more info.

There is a spring inside the HUD and it has probably come off. The samething happened to mine. I had to take it out myself and fix it. Majorhassle. The dealer wanted over 600.00 to do the same.

Hello! You're symptoms sound very much like a common problem associated with the fuel pump resistor. The GTP engine has a two speed fuel pump. There are two relays that control the fuel pump via the PCM module. The fuel pump relay and fuel pump hi-speed relay. Tied into the hi-speed relay is a fuel pump resistor that may go bad.
Symptoms vary but primarily the engine will start but die in a matter of seconds due to insufficient fuel pressure.
Here is a picture of the relay - which is located in the fuse box in the engine compartment:
What you can do to both diagnose this and either narrow it down to this or disqualify it as the culprit is remove relay #15, and bend out the tab labeled "85", and then reinstall the relay. If this does solve your problem, then you need to replace the Fuel Pump Resistor. Doing this will bypass the resistor, and place the fuel pump in "high" speed mode at all times. Once you have replaced the resistor, you need to bend the tab back to its normal position and replace the relay.
NOTE: while this may be a helpful diagnosis tool, and provide a temporary fix - doing this procedure for a prolonged period of time can lead to fuel pump failure. Use this at your own risk.
Hope this helps and good luck!
