It sounds like the security system has been activated so you need to roll down the drivers side window and close the door. Reach in and turn on the key to the Run position and leave in on for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes is up, turn off the key and then try to start the car. The car should start. If it doesn't start do the process over again. This usually fixes the problem. There is no way to turn off the security system unless you have a key fob. If you have the key fob, just unlock the car and that will disable the security system. I hope this has been helpful.

    A key fob is the lock and unlock clicker that comes with the key. Most GM cars come with one and it is what is used to lock and unlock the car.

Car just stopedrunning

Its possible. But I would suspect that you would see the security light flashing on the dash if that were the case. Is this the GT or GTP?

There is also an online Grand Prix community that you can visit that may have more answers for you. Go to, sign up and post up there what you are having trouble with. Its a nice sized community of people that should be able to help out.
