Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
My 2003 Pontiac Grand Am shuts down while I'm driving. Everything else will work, lights, radio, windows...it will shut down while I'm doing 60mph on the highway. I've taken it in to get repaired and because it is not reading a code, mechanics are not sure what is wrong with it. I have had the fuel pump replaced and crank shaft sensors and it is still doing this. I need some advice on what could be making my car shut down with out warning. It will go days with out doing it and then shut down several times in one day. HELP PLEASE!

Its the sensory electrical unit near the computer. I took it into a dealership and they had to replace the electrical near the computer chip. Total cost $333.00

2000-2002 Grand ams are notorious for having the most faulty passlock systems ever installed. You are experiencing a passlock failure. When the cars stalls on you, check to see if the "security" light illuminates on the dash board some where. That would be a 100% indicator that its the passlock
Look at this link i found when i had my problems. Read up on symptoms and fixes. 1 of those fixes eliminates all parts of that passlock system and you will never have to worry about it again.

This could be an anti theft security issue. This happens all the time in GM's. The anti thefts are known to fail and cause the car to not start, stall while driving, or start for 1-5 seconds and then die. A good indication that the security is failing is if you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a padlock thru the window. This link explains the problem, symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Get a new radio. Or an aftermarket radio with $180 adaptor. Sucks, but the radio ties into the security of the car, which may be effecting your starter. Sorry, these are probably the only options.
