Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
I was driving this morning, stopped at a store, when I started my car and put it into drive my Charging System Failure Light came on. I turned off my radio, heat and heated seats. The light went off. What could the problem be?
This is a common problem with these cars. I have had it come on also a couple of times. No need to worry unless it stays on.

SOURCE: I was driving this morning,
1. Possibly your battery is on its way out.( Heavy Discharge Test will confirm this )
2. Your charging system is poor, ie:- Alternator belt is loose or the alternator is on way out, or you have a bad connection to the alternator.
Most usually its a loose alternator belt.
Good Luck !
