On my 2002 Grand Prix there are times when I can't remove the key after I shut off the engine. This doesn't always happen, then if I wait five-ten minutes I can remove key.

2002 grand prix, changed the MAF due to code, tried a TPS from a shops recommendation. Also replaced fuel filter, car still hesitates and acts like it has a wrong fuel air mix. The hesitation happens...


It makes me wonder if the new MAF sensor did not fix the problem in that circuit? Were the codes cleared after replacing it? And engine light stays off? Only way to know is have them or someone check for new codes again. The codes direct you to a circuit malfunction. That's why a new sensor doesn't always fix the problem.
It may be something else, but one place to start is have the codes read again. If, as you say, may be an air fuel mixture, you could have your fuel pressure checked to see if it is up to specs. At least eliminate that possibility. Good luck.

Hello,

I want to assist you, but I need more information first. When this happens does the check engine come on before the car shuts down and if so what are the codes stored?

Starts and runs 3-5 seconds and shuts down


Sounds like your security system is shutting the car down. You should be able to leave the key on for 15 minutes and it will reset itself. Make sure you are using factory keys, and they are in good condition.

Electrical sytem? inconsistently shuts car down


These engines have a sensor known as the Crankshaft position sensor, they are most of the time the part that causes these problems, it is located on the front of the engine, it gets it's signal from the crank pulley/harmonic balancer, if it goes open when hot the engine dies, when the sensor cools back down the eng will restart.
