There is not allot of information to go on but my advise is to first change your starter to better troubleshoot the problem. It doesn't seem you are giving enough time for the engine to kick over.

1995 Pontiac Grand Prix - 6c537d64-9890-45f2-831f-8846707f8318.jpg
Your vehicle has fuel injection so you shouldn't need to press the gas pedal due to having or should have constant pressure in the fuel system. Sounds though as if you have a fuel problem. I would start by checking the fuel pressure. Looks as if you have the 3100 engine. Above in the picture shows the test port. You should have 40.5 to 47 PSI in fuel pressure with the key on engine not running. I would turn the key on for 3 seconds, turn it off, turn the key on for 3 seconds and again off. I would do this 3 or 4 times and then check my pressure. If low, check your fuel filter for beginners. Hope this helps....

SOURCE: Anti-theft code 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

DO a google search for Radio lock codes with you make model vehicle,, for 7$ you can get it,,here is what I found for a 2000 gp..
1. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 7 seconds until you get 3 digits on your display. This is the first 3 digits you will need, so write them down.

2. Press the AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you will need. You only have 5 seconds to do this. If you wait too long before pressing the AM/FM button, the display will go back to LOC. If this is the case, just start over at step 1.

3. Call 1-800-537-5140, press 2 for Pontiac, press 620529 and hit the # key. The computerized voice will ask you for your 6 digit code you have written down. Enter that and press the * key. He will then give you your unlock code, and the option to get additional codes. The first one worked for me so do not worry about the additional ones.

4. Set the code into your radio by pressing the hour set button on your radio until it corresponds with the first 2 digits of your code, then press the minute set button until the last 2 digits of your code are entered. Immediately press the AM/FM button once the correct code is entered and the code SEC or "secured" will be displayed. This part of the procedure is outlined in your owners manual.

5. If you want, you can change your code so you will not forget it, or get rid of the theftlock all together. These procedures are outlined in your owners manual, read it if you would like to change these values.

6. turn on the power to your radio and enjoy.


Hints:

- The first 3 and the last 3 digits were the same on my radio. (for example first 3 were 123 and last 3 were 123) First I thought I was doing something wrong when the display wasn't changing, but I wasn't. Just to let you know it is a possibility.

- The dealer code 620529 is an actual dealer. If GM finds out that this code was leaked to the public, they will remove it from their system. If the dealer code does not work when you phone the 1-800 number, you can search for a new dealer code on the internet somewhere. If this does happen, PM me and I will try to find one that works for you.

98 GRAND PRIX WONT CRANK SOMETIMES


This is a trick some folks do to figure out if it's the starter. When the car doesn't crank, take something like a bat or a metal bar and hit the starter and few times. If the car starts right away then it's your starter, otherwise you might consider the fuel pump relay/fuel pump.

1995 pontiac grand prix does not start. the key reads 30ohms resistance and that is what I get at the wires coming from the ignition. all fuses under hood good. dash lights up but when i turn the key...


Not sure what part of the key you are measuring or the significance.

Your car might be fitted with an immobiliser and if it is it could be malfunctioning but the vehicle handbook is the best source of information about this.

Your description could equally indicate faulty ignition/starter switch, connections, wiring or starter relay if fitted.

1995 pontiac grand prix se 3.1 want start, tried shifting park to neturl, plenty spark, tried shorten starter with screw driver, securtity flashes on dash, turn key nothing , all fuses hot, what next,


If the security system has been triggered this will shut down not only your starter but also your fuel pump. the most comon cause on a passlock II system is the wiring at the ignition lock cylinder breaks causing the computer to not be able to see the resistance chip in the key. you will most likely need a new ignition lock cylinder, keep in mind that you need to have the new cylinder keyed for the original key otherwise if you use a different key the security system will see the wrong resistance and you are back to square 1. your local dealer will be able to read the resistance of your original key and get you a cylinder to match.

How to replace throttle position sensor on a 1995 pontiac grand prix gtp


Remove all parts to access the throttle-body, typically the sensor is on the side with 2 screws.  Remove the wired plug and then the two screws.  Assembly is the reverse being careful to fit the flat piece of the throttle-body into the groove of the sensor. Do not overtighten.
Replace connector and other parts.
Typically the sensor is on the drivers side of the throttle body. May be a torx screw, or phillips (star).
Good luck.
Canada Rocks!
