Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
96' grand am 6 cylinder 2 door turns off right after starting it up. Sometimes it runs perfect and sometimes it wont start up and stay running. Within 1 second of starting it, it turns off. So I believe it is turning over and starting just for a brief moment then off...
Also, all of the warning lights turn on randomly while driving and will turn off if you hit the dashboard, but then turn back on when you hit a pot hole... The car runs perfectly other than these two things. My pregnant wife is scared to use the car in case she gets stuck somewhere by herself and it wont start.
My mechanic who doesn't do electrical says maybe a module needs to be replaced which can cost about $700.00.
(1)look at the wires in the steering column where it adjust up and down and see if some wires are touching inside the steering cover.
(2) it a reason to suspect a bad ground to the motor also will cause it too
your mechanic is wrong!!!!cause i have never held of or come across a module doing such things.
