Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 2001 grand prix which i took to get a new ignition key as well as a key fob about a week ago. when the man who works there went to start my car he used the key that was not programmed for my car yet, not allowing my car to start. He then used the correct key and the car started. Now about a week later when ever i open up my car door my dash lights, my tail lights and my head lights start to blink, almost like the hazards but its a little slower. I do not have a horn installed in my car but i imagine that it would be going off as well if I did. The car still runs for the moment but i cant drive it with the headlights flashing off and on constantly. my question is could this of been caused because of what the dealer had done. i ask this because i lost my keys to my car a long time ago and ended up trying a key that was just used to unlock the car to start it. it obviously didnt work but about a week later from that my ignition and steering wheel locked up and i had to spend $500 to get that fixed. thank you for your time.

Horn problem is either bad horns or failed clockspring behind steering wheel which is the connection for the airbag and horn buttons.

This situation is called "Torque Lock". The Solution is simply to Turn the Steering Wheel Slightly in the Opposite Direction to remove Pressure on the Steering Lock Pawl. Usually this occurs when turning off the Key while Pressure is Applied to the Steering Wheel from a slight "Roll-Back" or from the Power Steering being forced all the way to it's limit in one direction or the other. Always be sure that the Steering is allowed to relax prior to switching the Ignition Switch to the Locked Position. This is a very common problem most frequently experienced by women rather than men. Let me know if this helps!

Press and hold down both the lock and unlock buttons for fifteen seconds and listen for the beep which will signal that the fob has been programmed. Continue this for all existing and new fobs, you will be able to program four remotes to your Grand Prix and will have to do them all at once due to the memory being forgotten every time you enter Programming Mode. Once you have programmed all of the remotes and heard a beep for each one programmed, remove the key from the ignition to exit Programming Mode. You are now free to test your fobs and ensure that they all work.
