Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
A 1997 pontiac grand prix super charged,car works fine 80% of the time.then idle will fall below 500rpm run rough,all lights will dim,if i hold the idle up it will recover it self,now when it starts doing that,car will dye out but will re-start.thought i smelled plastic burning.and on rare ocassions after the car dyes out you try to re-start and there is nothing at all.but if you try again it will start.could this be bad wiring to the starter.
I had a bad air conditioner compressor that caused this same problem. It had almost completley seized and gave the car some real trouble starting. The burning smell I had was caused from the belt rubbing around the seized pully.

This seems like the reason why the idle is rough may be because the supercharger is bad.
