Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
Hello, Just a quick question before I start to diagnose this problem. I have a 2003 grand am with a 2.2L. Like many, I've had problems with the passlock security. This time it's close to the same symptoms, with an interesting twist. I had no problems till I came out of the store and tried to start the car. It started briefly, then died. I started it about three times with the same result. After that, if I pumped the accelerator rapidly, it would stay running, but very roughly then die. I'm ruling out the passlock security, because the fuel/ignition system seemed to be functioning, even if it was struggling. Security light is on, but not blinking, and has been on for about six months. I don't hear the fuel pump start up when I turn the key to the on position. So what do I have here? Fuse, relay, wiring, fuel pump? Is there any chance that the passlock is causing this? Thanks for the help.
Im having problems with my 2003 Grand Am SE1 3.4L. my wife was taking me to hospital yesterday and less than 1/2 mile from home in traffic the damn car just shut off on on, died out. i tired to jump it, didnt seem to work when we turn the key you can hear the engine trying to crank over, but nothing. so is this a fuel pump, battery issue or alternator issue? id hate to spend the 245dollars at pep boys to do it on top of the 200+labor and misc shop fees to do it ya know any help is greatly appreciated! btw the car has about 92500 miles. i was in military and car was in storage for almost 2 yrs i got it in 2006 deployed oct 2006 to jan 2008...

On June 13th, 2009 I had this same problem where my car would turn over but wouldn't start. I used your suggestion of banging on the gas tank from under the car and wouldn't you know it actually worked and my car started. Thanks a million. Time for a new fuel pump.

Maybe a weak fuel pump,or sticky throttle position sensor
