I had the same thing happen about two years age. I had the drivers side window motor replaced and the brain surgen didn't notice the lock/unlock switch didn't work after he put the door insides back togeather. Bypassing, then replacing the switch solved the problem. Look for a short somewhere.

SOURCE: Put in new stereo in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire now have no panel

Did you use a special wire harness? GM connected some computer system wiring with the stereo system, so if you replace this, there will be no chime when you open your door with the headlights on or keys in the ignition...and some other warning stuff. This special harness can be bought, but it is expensive (around 80-150$). Go to electronics store and ask for one. Anyways, hope this helps.

SOURCE: 04 pontiac sunfire battery light and panel lights dim

sounds like your alternator. if you have a multimeter then turn on your car and turn your headlights on/ac and heater fan on high/wipers on and blinkers on. once they are all on hook the meter to the battery and if it reads less then 14 volts then the alt is bad. or you can just take it to a shop and have it tested.

SOURCE: A/C Orifice Tube on Sunfire

Pontiac has bad habit of moving them around on us. 
Example: on the 2000 Sunfire it is at the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car. On the 1998 it is on the high pressure line right as it enters the firewall.
Therefore I am comfortable in saying that you will find it in the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car.I recommend that if you are doing this repair yourself, ensure you replace the o-ring on the line itself with a new one. 
 Thank you for your question and good luck.

SOURCE: check automatic transmission fluid 2001 pontiac sunfire

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.

Pontiac radio code


When I had to jump-start my car this winter, it reset my anti-theft radio code. When I stopped by the dealer and explained it, they verified that the car was mine (registration documents) and gave me the magic numbers to punch into the radio using the preset buttons. Worked the first time.

Replaced the radio in my 2001 Pontiac Sunfire with a radio from a scrapped 2001 Grand Am. Radio says "locked". How do I get it to work?.


Because you have removed the radio from a power source it automatically goes into stolen mode making the radio useless when stolen. This mode is selected when you change the battery but in that case you would have access to the code to re-enter it. Talk with a radio tech and they may be able to say how to fix or where to go to get the code.
