Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

4 Answers

96' Pontiac Grand AM, Won't start, has fuel, no spark.

Started with hard starting. Dashboard lights, lighting up like x-mas tree. Has fuel; no spark; no codes. Replaced ignition module. Checked grounds. Car does have water issues on passenger side. Checked computer connections. Looked for interior grounds, do not know if there is another possible ground that I am missing. When it did start, the dashboard lights went out and it would run fine. Now it won't start at all, but it does crank.I don't have a clue as to what is wrong. Help!

We have a 1996 Grand am SE 6 cyl with similar problem. If yours is a 6 cyl check your crank sensors. There are 2 of them, one behind the Vibration damper and one on the back of the block that has a yellow / purple wire to the Ignition Control Module. Haynes manual electrical diagram call this one an Ignition Timing Sensor, but it is a Crank Sensor at the parts stores. I would check this one first. You should also check your coils and Ignition Switch and Knock Sensor. You can get a Haynes repair manual from Advanced auto that will explain how to test these items. Good Luck.

2004 pontiac grand am v6 will crank but not start


How long since a tune-up? Check for applicable trouble codes? Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also check fuel injector pulse. What about your security system?

2001 grand am died while driving wont start back trac off light came on along with engine light


The trac light probably came on because the engine light came on.
You would need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes, and find out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed with testing.

96 grand am 2.4L DOHC, replaced the Crankshaft sensor and the throttle body sensor. Engine is hard to start and won't stay running. Sounds like when a choke is stuck and backfires when it quits running


Check the charging system13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts at the battery when running and lights and blower fan on high.Check the battery connections,that they are clean.The fuel pressure maybe low,check the fuel filter,and the fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump is weak.
