Go to aamco and have em run a diagnostic check, sounds like you may have a blown transmission. if thats the case and you decide to keep the car and fix it, dont immediately assume that fixing the current one is cheapest. look online for model and engine specific replacement transmissions. i had a blown trans and the current one was $2700 to fix and i got a used one with a 1 year warruntee for $1000 and i installed it myself. i think the grand am is front wheel drive so replacing that transmission yourself would most likely be a MASSIVE pain and could include removing lots of parts before even touching the transmission. i just replaced a FWD transmission and it was very complicated. if you decide to take it upon yourself to swap them yourself, make sure to have a full shop manual for your specific vehical, make sure to have lots of time and dont expect a simple, easy, flawless, or one weekend job. its rough but do-able. thats my fair warning! hope this helps.

SOURCE: Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

SOURCE: car shuts off while driving wont start up

You need to replace your crankshaft position sensor located by the harmonic balacer. These sensors heat up and cut off the engine until the sensor cools down. This happens with age and it is not specific to GM.

SOURCE: trac off light comes on a 2003 pontiac grand am

This is the TCS or Traction Control System. It helps keep the vehicle from being able to get stuck by forcing the torque to either tire. Usually there is a switch either on the dash or on the shifter that says TCS or TRAC press the switch and it should go off.

This is can be a faulty reverse gear activation switch and can be confirmed if the lines to the reverse switch is removed or if the fault goes off when you are changing few times from the reverse to the first gear. If not check for short in the wiring harness or in the rear light assembly circuit.
You can disconnect the rear assembly and take a voltage check.

So i parked my car yesterday and took the key out to find out park, but reverse. now i cant start my car or change the gears! i can still put the keys in and out and turn it but the car wont start or shift...


Put the key in, turn it forward 2 clicks like normal. Make sure you push the brakes all the way down and then try to shift the gear to park. Ya, cars wont start in gear, they made that way. If it still wont go in gear, try turning the steering wheel left & right. Sometimes the wheel lock can mess with ya. If not still, you need to call a mechanic. Cuz actually, if you were in reverse instead of park, the key should have never came out. Also make sure the key is in ALL the way.

Reverse lights wont work


On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
