Chimes are generated by the radio. Unplugging the radio and then plugging it in can activate the security feature in the radio and is very unwise. You can try resetting it by disconnecting the negative battery wire, then plugging the radio in and reconnecting the battery wire. If that doesn't work, check with a dealer to see if they can reset it, but if the radio has been damaged by what you are doing, you may have to replace it.

I haven't seen that happen on a Grand Am yet, but my best guess is either the headlight relay is bad or the ignition switch is defective.

SOURCE: where is the fuse box on a 97 pontiac grand prix?

Inside the glove box on the passenger side you will see an opening. Use a light and you will see that it says "pull here", remove the plastic and the fuses are right behind it.

Hi I m trying 2 program my remote on my 2001 Pontiac Aztec


Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.

1. Close all doors.

2. Insert key into the ignition cylinder but do not turn it.

3. Press and hold the Unlock button on door lock switch on drivers door.
Hold until instructed to release.

4. Remove key from ignition and then insert key into ignition without turning ignition cylinder and remove key.

5. Insert key in ignition a third time and leave key in ignition. Do Not turn ignition.

6. Release door lock switch on drivers door panel.
A Chime will sound 3 times indicating that you are in programming mode.

7. Press both the Lock and Unlock buttons on the remote up to 30 seconds.
A chime will sound 2 times if remote has programmed successful.

8. Repeat step 6 if you are programming additional remotes.

9. Remove key from ignition to exit programming mode.

NOTE: If you are having trouble getting this procedure to work, we have found that some vehicles need step 3 to be done before step 2

My rearview mirror lights and dome light in my 2004 Grand Am will not turn off even when buttons/switch are in correct positions.


This could be related to the switch located on the door jam of your car. As you know, normally when you open your cars' door, the courtesy lights in your car will illuminate to help facilitate your exit. However, if the switch is broken or malfunctioning it will 'think' your door is ajar even if it is not. A good way to test this theory is to turn your headlights on and listen for the chime that reminds you that you've left them on if you should try to exit the car.
However, if you've installed an aftermarket stereo in your vehicle, due to the chimes being routed through the factory stereo(in post-2003 models), if the correct equipment wasn't installed, these chimes will not sound.

The door chime is chiming even with the doors being closed and the key is out of the ignition.


Sounds like the chimer is bad. The relay is weak or broken. Mine would chime all the time especially after making a turn. Replaced it and now its not a problem.

Put in new stereo in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire now have no Panel operation-all panel lights on but no ppower to controls have been told I need to increase a fuse size but which one?


Did you use a special wire harness? GM connected some computer system wiring with the stereo system, so if you replace this, there will be no chime when you open your door with the headlights on or keys in the ignition...and some other warning stuff. This special harness can be bought, but it is expensive (around 80-150$). Go to electronics store and ask for one. Anyways, hope this helps.
